Raw Vegan Recipes: Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl

April 1, 2016
Cool off this spring and upcoming summer with this refreshing and fruity banana berry smoothie bowl! This is also a sweet and fun weekend project to do with the kids by the pool or whenever. :) I personally am not a fan of regular smoothies but when I get that sweet craving, I make sure to add a little extra frozen nana pieces to make the smoothie thicker and creamier. It gives it that ice-cream/frozen yogurt like consistency. Then I load on the toppings! I used banana slices, blueberries and chia seeds for this recipe. Also, I added a dollop of my fresh almond butter on top. Banana Facts: Did you know? - Bananas have no fat or sodium and contain about 100 calories in a 110 g or large banana. - High in vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B6 and fiber. - To ripen bananas faster: put them in a sealed container like a brown paper bag. Adding another fruit to the container (such as an apple or even a tomato) will further speed the ripening. - Wrapping banana stems tightly in cling wrap will make them last three to five days longer. - About 75 percent of the weight of a banana is water. Eat yo nanas!! Hope you enjoy this recipe. :) http://thebananapolice.com/fun-facts/
