Sweetheart Smoothie Bowl

Who else has been craving cold, fruity smoothies these past couple weeks?

As the weather has become too hot to cook over the stove, I’ve become creative with my smoothie blends. My sweetheart smoothie bowl is a perfect combo of two of my favorite flavors—raspberry & chocolate. If you’re in the mood for a creamy, slightly tart & sweet smoothie to cool you off, this is the perfect recipe for you! Let’s make smoothies!

Raspberry Cacao Smoothie Bowl Recipe

I recently was at a new-to-me smoothie and juice bar in Buffalo with one of my friends. On their menu was a smoothie bowl made with berries and cacao. After devouring the bowl, which was topped with shredded coconut and perfectly crisp granola, I knew I had to recreate my own version of it. 

My love for frozen white sweet potato made its way to my version of the berry-cacao smoothie. White sweet potato is dry and neutral compared to regular sweet potato. It’s also sweeter than regular white potato. The result of steamed and frozen white sweet potato is a soft, creamy, and extremely sweet base for this smoothie bowl.

Raspberries are in season, days are hotter, and the time we want to spend in the kitchen is shorter. This smoothie is the perfect start to any busy, hot day. Also, who doesn’t love a raspberry-chocolate “sweetheart” combo?

Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Course: Breakfast, Smoothie
Cuisine: Gluten Free, Vegan
Yield: 1 bowl

Materials

smoothie:

  • 1/2 cup raspberries frozen
  • 1 cup frozen cauliflower or sub banana
  • 2/3 cup white sweet potato steamed and frozen* (or sub banana)
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk I used oat milk
  • 1/2 Tbsp. cacao powder or sub cocoa
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • pinch salt

toppings (optional)

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in blender**. Blend on high until smooth and creamy, scraping the edges halfway through to ensure evenness.
  • Scoop into bowl, sprinkle with toppings if desired and serve immediately.

Notes

*Either chop and roast your sweet potato in the oven or prick with a fork a few times, wrap in a paper towel, and microwave for 4-6 minutes, flipping over half way through. Once soft, roughly dice, spread out on tray and freeze until ready to use.
**If you plan on making smoothies frequently, I definitely suggest investing in a good blender. (I went through 3 cheep blenders over the course of one semester in college. no joke). I love my Vitamix - probably one of the best Christmas gifts I’ve ever received. It literally holds up anything. You can buy them certified refurbished which helps cut the cost and still gives you a great product.
