- Non-Dairy Milk - I like to use coconut or almond milk. You can choose any type you like that is sweetened or unsweetened.
- Buckwheat Groats - you can replace them with cashews, or a few tablespoons of nut butter. I like buckwheat because it's a complete protein and it contains all the 8 essential amino acids. It's super filling too!
- Frozen Mixed Berries - choose whichever berries you like such as raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries.
- Frozen Banana - this will make the smoothie bowl extra creamy.
How to make a Berry Smoothie Bowl
STEP 1 - Drain and rinse buckwheat really well. Discard soaking water.
STEP 2 - To a high-powered blender, add the non-dairy milk and then the remaining ingredients. Blend on high until creamy and smooth, using the tamper as needed. The consistency should be very thick, but if it's too thick for the blender to move, add a few splashes of milk. If it's too thin, add more frozen fruit. Pour into two small bowls and add your favorite toppings.
Smoothie Bowl Topping Ideas
- Coconut Flakes
- Buckwheat Groats
- Chia Seeds
- Fresh Fruit
- Hemp Seed
Basically, you can top your smoothie bowl with anything that makes your taste buds happy. No rules here!
- Protein Powder
- Flax Seeds
- Nut Butter
- Medjool Dates
- Add-ins are delicious and fun, but if you add too many, you can ruin the texture of your smoothie bowl so just pick a few. You may need to add more liquid as well.
- Have your toppings ready to go because the mixture will start to melt fairly quickly.
- Put the liquid in the blender first so you don't strain the motor.
- Use the tamper to help pulverize the fruit easily.
- If the blender is straining, add a small amount of liquid to get things moving.
Buckwheat is unrelated to all the grasses in the wheat family, so it’s completely gluten-free. Actually, it's a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel. It’s a great source of iron, phosphorus, manganese, copper, and magnesium.
