Start your day strong with this sweet, tart, and nutrient-dense smoothie bowl! A base of bananas, blueberries, and raspberries combine to provide the energy to excel and the antioxidants to recover. Two dates add a touch of sweetness to this protein-packed blend, while the whole food toppings provide a full spectrum of benefits and a pleasingly crunchy texture—making this the perfect choice for an early morning or to satisfy a late night chocolate craving.
½ cup blueberries
½ cup raspberries
2 pitted dates
1 tbsp nut butter of choice
1 cup almond milk (use more or less for desired consistency)
1 scoop of Chocolate Magic vegan protein powder (or nondairy protein powder of choice)
Diced Planet Protein bars
1. Using a high-speed blender, blend all the base ingredients until perfectly smooth. Pour into a bowl (it should be thick!).
2. Top with toppings ingredients, or get creative and use whatever fruits, granola, nut butters, nuts, or seeds you have on hand.
3. Eat immediately. Enjoy!
