It’s official: I’ve bought a beet farm.
At least, that’s what my kitchen and fridge are telling me. Fuelling my obsession for this powerful root vegetable, I decided to incorporate it into a protein-packed, anti-oxidant rich and filling breakfast smoothie bowl. The day after I finished this, I went out and got even more beets to ensure I always have some around to make more of this ridiculously tasty smoothie bowl. Satisfaction guaranteed.
I’ve seen the smoothie bowl trend around for a while and find it hilarious that I never got into it since I’ve been doing it for ages. Smoothie bowls are slightly thicker versions of your favourite smoothie that are loaded with toppings to make it a really complete breakfast. I wanted this to be the type of smoothie that would properly fuel you post-workout with the right nutrients and protein. I usually make a quick protein shake out of Silk ® Almondmilk and natural pea protein powder, so I thought, why not build on that for a satisfying and complete smoothie?
When it came to the ingredients for this smoothie bowl, the beets were a total no brainer. Roasting beets bring out its natural sweetness and creates a beautiful velvet texture that is perfect for any recipe. The frozen raspberries helped to guarantee that this smoothie bowl was nice and thick along with the bananas. The lime, flax seeds and other ingredients are simply the cherry on top for creating the perfect complimentary flavours while adding additional nutrients.
Using the Silk ® Almondmilk instead of regular milk means that not only can anyone make this dish, but it’s easy on anyone who gets an upset stomach from dairy. If you’re lactose intolerant, gluten free, vegan, or just don’t want regular cow’s milk, Silk ® Almondmilk is a great option. You still get loads of calcium, a smooth and creamy texture and a great flavour that compliments absolutely any smoothie bowl. I’ve been a user of their nut milks for 5+ years and would definitely recommend it.
Here’s some of the benefits of this smoothie bowl:
