Not all smoothies need banana! This Berry Smoothie Bowl is banana-free, low in sugar and contains hidden veggies. Perfect for breakfast.
This Berry Smoothie Bowl is a winner! If you're someone who doesn't like bananas in your smoothies, or doesn't like them overly sweet, this is for you.
Don't get me wrong, I love a banana-based smoothie, but sometimes I want something less sweet with a slightly different taste for breakfast, and this recipe is my go-to.
Made with mixed berries and sweetened only with two dates, this bowl also sneakily manages to get in a couple of portions of vegetables. You'll find you don't taste the kale or riced cauliflower, but get all the benefits of these veggies (extra vitamins, fibre etc.) while enjoying a delicious-tasting smoothie.
Perfect for those who love a less sweet breakfast, this berry smoothie will set you up for the day!
NO BANANA BERRY SMOOTHIE BOWL - NOTES
Riced Cauliflower - I recommend using riced cauliflower for this smoothie bowl as it blends a little more easily than cauliflower florets or pieces. You can usually buy these frozen in places like Costco.
And I promise you won't be able to taste it! The cauliflower just helps to add texture and thickness to the smoothie bowl (plus a load of extra nutrients).
Protein Powder - For protein powder, you can use any you wish but I'd recommend using an unflavoured variety.
(I personally really like Omega Nutrition's Pumpkin Protein Powder as I find it has no taste and no weird texture. Plus you only need to use a small amount per serving, so it doesn't overpower the smoothie!)
