Breakfast, they say it’s the most important meal of the day. Apparently the thinking goes that if you start the day off with a healthy meal you’ll be more likely to keep making healthy choices the rest of the day. I agree with that line of thinking, so I came up with this Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl. Beautiful isn’t it?

Why a Smoothie Bowl?
Smoothie bowls aren’t that different than a smoothie served in a glass, but serving in a bowl allows you to add toppings like the ones I use here: fruit, coconut, and granola, making your morning smoothie a little more substantial and filling…not to mention pretty.
Breakfast in Less Than Five Minutes!
Simply add ingredients to the blender, and while it does it’s job you can slice a banana and a few berries, grab the granola and voila! A healthy breakfast in a snap.
The Recipe: Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowls!
Tips and what you’ll need: a good quality blender. I love my Blentec! If you want to use rich, creamy homemade almond milk in this recipe <—click!
A quick, simple, healthy breakfast! I offer this recipe using dairy and non dairy choices.
- 2 cups your favorite milk (almond milk, whole cow's milk, coconut milk etc)
- 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 6 pitted dates
- banana slices, berries, shredded coconut, granola
Place two cups milk (almond or cow) into blender, add dates and berries, blend until smooth. If you need to thin out smoothie, add up to a 1/2 cup more milk. Pour into bowls and top with granola, shredded coconut, and berries! Serve and enjoy!

Looks gorgeous. Just bought dates for the first time in ages, so I think this will make a nice late breakfast tomorrow.
Thanks! Dates are my favorite smoothie sweetener!
