    Very berry summer smoothie bowl

    • 5-10 mins
    • Serves 1-2

      The key to a good smoothie bowl base is consistency! A nice icy, thick, almost ‘soft serve’ texture is ideal. For this, ice cubes and frozen blueberries are essential.

      Ingredients

      Ingredients for the smoothie base:

      • 3 Medjool dates, pitted
      • 1 ½ cups frozen blueberries
      • 3 walnuts
      • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
      • Handful ice cubes
      • ½ cup plant milk + extra if needed

       

      Optional:

      • Small handful of spinach
      • 1 frozen sachet of unsweetened Açai purée (cheaper when on special at Coles and Woolworths!)

       

      Toppings:

      • Homemade granola
      • 1 tbsp 100% almond or peanut butter
      • 4 strawberries, sliced

       

      Optional:

      • Pepitas
      • Sunflower seeds
      • Chia seeds
      • A light sprinkle of buckwheat groats

      Directions

      1. Slice open and remove the pits from the medjool dates.
      2. Combine all ingredients into a high powered blender. Pause to mix ingredients around before adding more milk; the key is in the icy and thick texture. Too much milk will make this too runny. Add small amounts of milk to aid blending if required.
      3. Pour into a breakfast bowl and add toppings. (Smoothie bowls are unofficially about presentation, line things up, or throw it all down in a big mess. Delicious either way!)

      Chef's Tips

      • Swap plant milks for different tastes, or even swap milk for young coconut water.
      • Use a mix of frozen berries in the smoothie base for different flavours and textures. Blackberries will add more seedy berry textures, while raspberries will add more tropical flavours.
      • Add more dates if you’re a sweet tooth. However dates are fairly calorie dense, so it is helpful to be mindful of this depending on your needs.
      • Try adding spinach, it totally ‘disappears’ in the smoothie base, I promise, it is tasteless, and a great way to get in some extra sneaky veg)
      • If you’ve served enough, and you have leftovers, grab a spare ice cube tray and pour it into the ice slots. Later on you can throw them back into the blender for another bowl!
