My Go To Raspberry Smoothie Bowl

When your life is in super speed mode, there are mornings that you forget to eat. YES! Imagine that! Its possible to forget to put food in your mouth until lunch time.
I practiced this nasty habit myself sometimes when I had to go to work each morning. It can cause your health and body to suffer and certainly your energy levels.
So if this is you, its time to tell yourself, no more.
Busy mornings call for a quick breakfast. So, when I'm looking to make something nutritious and filling, but healthy FAST, smoothies and smoothie bowls are the way to go.
Super quick and you can have it sipping on your way to work or to drop kiddos to school. Now-a-days working from home, I like to make a smoothie bowl, sit at my computer and enjoy eating it with a spoon.
And that's where smoothie bowls come to shine. Sweet, creamy, and with colorful toppings, it's a real sight for hungry eyes. And a real treat for the hungry belly.
This incredible Raspberry Smoothie Bowl was on my menu for few times last week. It was so sweet, tart and super thick. I just had to put it online to shine!
It's thick and creamy, bursting with fresh flavors + it's packed with superfoods and nutrients and has fun toppings that complement the flavors of the nutritious smoothie base. 
The base is mainly raspberries and bananas.  The raspberries offer dietary fiber and vitamin C.  And the bananas are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin B6 and fiber. They are also high in potassium.
I also tossed in a handful of fresh baby spinach. Which makes this smoothie bowl secretly "green". Raspberries hide the leafy green taste of spinach making this smoothie acceptable even by my veggie-hater hubby. It's a nice trick to get some more veggies into your family's diet (or your own).
Smoothie bowls are fast becoming the “go to” perfect breakfast and a fabulous dessert replacement for ice-cream or frozen yogurt.
Just like ice-cream, smoothie bowls are creamy and cold and thick enough to eat with a spoon. But, there’s a huge difference between ice-cream and smoothie bowls…nutrition.
Smoothie bowls offer the bonus of nutrient-rich vegetables, fruits and super foods. They are perfect for a quick healthy breakfast when you just don’t have time to stop and sit when you are on the go and need lots of energy but don’t have time to fuss with multiple meals.
Smoothie bowls take the “smoothie” to new level of health by way of leafy greens, quality protein, healthy fats and good carbs (from vegetables), creamy avocado, tropical fruits, oats, seeds, coconut products and nuts.
Benefits you receive from Smoothie Bowls:
Jumpstarts your energy with a huge boost so you automatically want to get moving and become more active.
Reduces hunger and helps eliminate hunger pangs which in turn helps you stick to healthy eating.
Improves health due to all the nutrients being absorbed.
Detoxes your system from processed dead foods
Saves valuable time in prep and eating healthy
Helps with weight-loss by filling you up so you avoid junk food cravings.
Great way to get the young ones eating veggies they may not like by themselves.
All you need to make these nutrient-dense delicious and healthy ice-cream alternatives is a good strong blender and 4-5 minutes to whip it up.
A basic thick Smoothie Bowl contains approximately 400-500 calories…which for most people is an entire meal’s worth. But the good thing is you control what goes into those 4 or 500 calories. You can even reduce the calories by switching out ingredients or add more if you are looking for something more filling.
Since Smoothie Bowls are extra thick they are eaten in a bowl and not a glass like traditional smoothies. This adds another level of fun as you can add they have lots of surface area to add some fun favorite ingredients to such as fruits, nuts, homemade granolas and other fun healthy toppings.
This super thick and creamy Raspberry Smoothie Bowl loaded up with fun and delicious toppings, raspberry-themed and full of flavor and texture. 
So pretty in pink…I think its almost too pretty to eat.  Almost....
