How is that for alliteration?
Free from dairy, this smoothie bowl is just what you need on these sweltering sunny days. It takes 2 minutes to make, and you’ll be presented with absolute berry heaven. Adding protein powder is optional, but I normally always have a smoothie or smoothie bowl either side of my workout, so I always tend to include some protein in there. I’ve used vanilla here from Form Nutrition, and it doesn’t overpower the berry flavour too much which is perfect.
I used Rebel Skimmed Mylk which adds such a delicious creaminess to it. Their milks are different from the standard dairy free milks, and a must try in my opinion. The components are coconut cream for creaminess, salt for savouriness, brown rice for sweetness, cashew for earthiness and nutritional yeast for grassiness. So a lil different from ya usual oat milk right! But whatever the combination of quantities are in their recipes, they have absolutely nailed it! The mylk works beautifully in smoothies, oats, baking, and even creamy sauces. If you haven’t already tried, give them a go.
And another favourite product of late, which I have been sprinkling in all sorts, is Iswari’s Buddha’s Awakening Raspberry. It consists of a mixture of seeds, buckwheats and raspberry powder, and adds a delicious colour to this bowl. They have a number of different products, with another favourite being their Original Maccacino which is a combination of cacao and maca powder. I’ve been making the tastiest energy balls with this.
So – a 0 fuss, berry flavoured, protein packed smoothie bowl to cool you down in this heat. Drizzled with optional peanut butter to feed my addiction. But top how you wish, and most importantly – enjoy and let me know what you think.
