Raspberry Chia Smoothie

Smoothie bowls have been popping up all over my Instagram feeds lately, and I must say that they all have looked so divine that I simply had to make one for myself……and doesn’t it just look a treat! The thing is though, I’m not sure about all of the other smoothie bowl makers out there, but I just couldn’t get my head around eating/drinking it.

I mean, how does one consume a smoothie bowl?

Are you supposed to use a spoon?

A straw?

Cup your hands around the bowl and drink it up like a steaming hot miso?

Someone please tell me how its done – I’m perplexed!!!

My solution to this conundrum? I blended it šŸ™‚ Well it is a smoothie after all, so once the photo shoot was complete I whizzed the whole lot up in my smoothie maker and drank it from my smoothie bottle – the way I think smoothies should be!

Now this smoothie is TART, not in a “sorry I tried to sleep with your husband” kind of way but due to the raspberries and natural yogurt, it is also chocked full of lot’s of good stuff for your body.

Did you know that raspberries are full of antioxidants which have been proven to benefit heart and eye health as well as protect the body again autoimmune problems?

The addition of chia seeds gives your body a huge fibre boost (which is oh so important for bowel health) and also delivers a poweful punch of magnesium, calcium and maganese, which are vital for healthy bones.

Try this one for yourself, I think you’ll like it.  Oh, if you work out how to consume it from the bowl, please let me know!
