Berries everywhere! On special at the grocery, at farmer’s markets, in your garden! For myself, we have three mulberry trees and I needed to find a way to put these to good use. So, I washed them, froze them and now are using them in smoothies like crazy.

Berry smoothie bowl with chia, flax and oats

My recipe:
1/4 c. mulberries
1/4 c. blueberries
1/2 c. dark cherries
(any combination of berries that equal 1 cup will work – just use what makes you happy!)

1/2 c. beet juice
I topped my smoothie bowl off with ground flax and chia seeds. I also added some shakeology powder – I would have added it prior to blending, if I had remembered! I think this would have made it creamier as well, so I would definitely recommend adding protein powder and will add a scoop next time. I also sprinkled a tablespoon of oats on top.

Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie BowlsI love my shakeology smoothie and enjoy one every day – I just thought it would be fun to try the (almost) same thing in a bowl! So yummy & fun to eat. I blended 1 cup of berries, a scoop of vanilla Shakeology (any protein powder will work), a handful of spinach and 1/2 cup of water. I think I actually added a little more water, which was too much – it got a little soupy. So, stick to a half cup. I would also suggest throwing in some oats to the blender to thicken it up a little. I’m going to be trying different versions, so stay tuned for new recipes!

Quick recipe for Smoothie Bowl:

  • 1 c berries – I used strawberries because they’re in season, but any mixture of berries will work
  • scoop of protein powder
  • 1/2 c of water
  • add 3 Tbsp of oats or granola
  • a handful of spinach or kale
  • Blend. Voila. Enjoy!
