BERRY-CRUNCHY-SMOOTHIE-BOWL_400If you’ve never heard of smoothie bowls, they’re basically a thicker version of the kind you’d serve in a glass and sip through a straw. Then you add toppings for texture and a nutritional boost. Here, the strong, lovable flavor of raspberries mellows out the beets—and gives you an incredible dose of phytonutrients. Don’t skip the topping at the end; it gives the dish great crunch and makes it feel substantial. Enjoy this tasty dessert and more in my cookbook Sneaky Blends.

 

¾ cup Raspberry-Beet Base Blend
½ cup no-sugar-added pomegranate juice (or freshly squeezed orange juice)
2 teaspoons raw honey
1 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
½ cup frozen blueberries
3 teaspoons chia seeds, divided
3 tablespoons rolled oats (gluten free)
1 tablespoon slivered unsalted almonds
Pinch of ground cinnamon
