Believe it or not, this is the very first smoothie bowl recipe that I’ve blogged on Amee’s Savory Dish. I’ve always consumed my smoothies in the drinkable form and haven’t really had the desire to make bowls out of my beloved shakes.
However, when I was sent organic blueberry juice from R.W. Knudsen Family® with a recipe card for their mixed berry smoothie bowl, I was inspired to create my own. My blueberry chocolate smoothie bowl is packed with lean muscle-building protein and tastes absolutely incredible. Where have these delicious smoothie bowls been all my life?!!
You can get really creative with your toppings, but these are three of my absolute favorite…
If you haven’t tried the different varieties of R.W. Knudsen Family® Just Juice®, then you are in for a treat! I love them because they are made of unsweetened 100% juice, so you get all the goodness without unnecessary added sugars. A little of this juice goes a long way in your recipes and adds incredible flavor. This definitely tastes like dessert, but makes a fast, healthy and filling breakfast or lunch. It also just seems a bit heartier eating it with a spoon instead of having a liquid meal, which often leaves me with urges to chew something.
You might as well call this Blueberry Chocolate Smoothie Bowl an antioxidant powerhouse bowl! This bowl is loaded with wild berries, chia seeds and cacao nibs for an an impressive mix of nutrients, not to mention a whopping 41 grams of protein! The protein powder that I used in this recipe has 100 calories a scoop and 24 grams of protein, feel free to substitute with your favorite brand.
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to grab a spoon!
