Chex™ Berry Smoothie Bowl
This deliciously simple and easy smoothie bowl recipe starts with blended frozen berries, banana and Califia Farms™ unsweetened almond milk. Topped with fresh fruit, almonds, coconut and Cinnamon Chex™ Cereal for a perfect crunch, this berry banana smoothie bowl is gluten free and dairy free. Customize your toppings as you wish—we like to complete ours with a drizzle of almond butter for a bowl that is as beautiful as it is delicious.
- 2 cups frozen mixed berries
- 1 large banana, sliced
- 3/4 cup Califia Farms™ unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup Cinnamon Chex™ cereal
- 2/3 cup fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries)
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened natural raw coconut chips
- 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
- 1 tablespoon creamy almond butter, stirred to drizzling consistency
- In blender, combine the frozen berries, half of the banana slices and the almond milk. Blend until smooth and thick, stopping the blender occasionally to stir mixture. If necessary, add a tablespoon at a time (up to 3 tablespoons) of additional almond milk, to blend. (Mixture will be thick.)
- Transfer the mixture to two small chilled bowls. Top each with cereal, fresh berries, remaining banana slices, coconut chips and almonds; drizzle with almond butter. Serve immediately.
- If you have one, a high-speed blender with a tamper works best for blending a thick smoothie mixture. A regular blender also works but may require stirring and adding additional liquid to blend. The thick mixture is essential to supporting your delicious toppings.
- For easy drizzling, place almond butter in small resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut small hole in 1 corner of bag. Drizzle over tops of bowls.
- Additional topping ideas include pepita seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, cacao nibs. For more sweetness, add a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.
- Chilling your bowls in the freezer before filling helps keep your smoothie mixture cold.
- Make sure to use Califia Farms™ unsweetened almond milk to make this recipe dairy free!
