The third installment of my music smoothie bowl series is dedicated – again – to the super talented artist forever known as Prince. I can’t help it; he’s one of my favorite musicians and also just happens to have a lot of color/fruit-themed songs… hello, Raspberry Beret Smoothie Bowl!
Smoothie bowls have honestly been a savior for me during a summer Whole30. They are cool and refreshing, and they can be easily adapted to my Whole30 diet where I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything. And yes, this one was made during re-introduction (which is why it has the granola on top.)
Raspberries were on sale at Sprouts this week so I definitely had to use them as the base of my Sunday smoothie bowl. I love raspberries, but I feel like they go bad so quickly! I usually have a couple of days to eat them fresh before I freeze the rest to use later. Don’t omit the frozen banana, as it really helps to create the perfect creamy texture. For those who don’t like bananas like me, you can’t really taste it in the presence of all that other fruit.
This raspberry smoothie bowl was extra delish because I used my maple-vanilla chunky granola recipe! It added the perfect crunch to my bowl and just a hint of sweetness to complement the natural sugars from the fruit. Try some shredded coconut or chopped nuts for another texture element.

Raspberry Beret Smoothie Bowl
- 5 oz. raspberries frozen
- 1 ct. sliced banana frozen
- 1 cup chopped spinach
- 2 tbsp. almond milk
- 1 oz. raspberries fresh
- ⅛ cup blueberries
- ¼ cup Maple-Vanilla Chunky Granola
- Place your bowl in the refrigerator.
- n a blender, add frozen raspberries, frozen banana, and spinach. Blend until it has a choppy consistency. [Pro tip: to get your toppings to perfectly sit on top, your smoothie base has to be thick. The way we are going to blend these ingredients keeps the texture we need]
- Add almond milk a little at a time until you get to a thick, spoon-worthy consistency.
- Add smoothie base to the cold bowl. If your kitchen is warm, put your bowl back in the fridge to ensure it stays cool.
- Chop and slice your toppings. This is where you can use your creative freedom – granola, honey, almond butter, slivered nuts, your favorite fruits – anything tastes great on top of this base!
- Grab your bowl and top with the prepared toppings. Snap a picture for the 'gram, show off your delicious food art, and enjoy!
