Hey friends, if you love smoothie bowls, I have a great recipe for you today! I don’t make smoothies nearly enough, and every time I make one, I can’t figure out why I waited so long. They are a great way to fit more fruits, veggies, and healthy fats into your diet, and protein if you choose to add some!

There were a lot of recipes to choose from, but I was leaning towards a sweet smoothie or dessert bowl (of course). Lindsay’s book has 75 healthy bowl recipes that include sweet and savory bowls for every meal from breakfast to dessert. The book is also an artistic masterpiece, so you will really enjoy looking through the photos in her book as well.

All of the recipes in the Nourishing Superfood Bowls cookbook sound amazing, like the Green Goddess Power Salad Bowls, the Mango Tango Glow Bowls, and the Sticky Date Cake Yogurt Bowls. I chose to share the vibrant Purple Power Smoothie Bowls recipe with you today, and I tried my hand at food photography with flowers, a first for me.

I made just a couple tweaks to this recipe: I made it with coconut milk instead of almond milk so my kids would have this, too, and I skipped the slivered almonds on top and used coconut instead. I used raw beets and the avocado I bought wasn’t very soft, so it wasn’t quite as creamy, but it was delicious! It was not overly sweet and the beets made the color amazing.
