Jazz up your breakfast or snack with this easy Berry Healthy Smoothie Bowl with a protein boost! It’s paleo, has only 5 ingredients, and has no added sugars.
Need a little variety for breakfast or snacks? Sometimes I get into a food rut, basically eating the same things over and over. Especially in the mornings since I can’t have typical breakfast food (like eggs and yogurt), and I try to do most of my baking to the weekends.
Not baking too much during the week saves time in the mornings and keeps me from over-indulging in baked treats, but I sometimes breakfast gets boring!
Enter the Berry Healthy Smoothie Bowl! For some reason I have never really gotten into the habit of daily smoothies like some people do. Somehow I always forget about smoothies, probably because I prefer to chew my food rather than drink it. But, I still think smoothies are amazing, even if I forget to make them very often.
I decided to remake one of my older recipes from a couple years ago, revamping it with some new photos and an updated recipe. Not very many people visited my older post, so not too many people will notice that it’s changed 😉
I love having a bit of protein in my smoothies, especially in the mornings and for snacks since I try to make sure I’m getting enough protein each day. I used the Vital Proteins marine collagen powder in this smoothie bowl, but you can use whichever collagen powder or protein powder you prefer. You may need to adjust the amount of liquid in this with a little non-dairy milk depending on your protein powder.
The fun thing about this smoothie bowl made with collagen is that I took the photos of it, and set it in the fridge for later. After about 1-1/2 hours I came back to eat it and it had set up a little bit like fruity mousse! Pretty awesome I think, I’ll have to do some experimenting with healthy mousse recipes using collagen powder!
Berry Healthy Smoothie Bowl (Paleo)
- 1 cup strawberries quartered
- ½ cup blueberries
- ¼ cup raspberries
- 2 Tablespoons Vital Proteins marine collagen or your favorite plain or vanilla protein

Wow, I really like the mousse-like consistency of this smoothie. Berries are by far my favorite thing about the summers and I just can’t get enough of them. Time to put my NutriBullet to use.

This looks delish! I have to try out the vanilla creme stevia! Sounds amazing!!
I LOVE the vanilla cream stevia, it’s my favorite! I think it tastes much better than regular Stevia – it tastes so good in coffee!
Perfect healthy treat. I really need to invest in a Magic Bullet.
