I’m all about berries in summer – strawberries, blackberries, and of course, raspberries. This recipe for dairy-free raspberry smoothie bowls does a delicious job highlighting this sweet-tart fruit. It uses a full cup per smoothie bowl – plus more for the topping, if you wish.
These Dairy-Free Raspberry Smoothie Bowls are Naturally Delicious
I love that this recipe uses just whole food ingredients, and has no added sugars. It’s wholesome, but oh-so refreshing, with a light yet creamy finish. The recipe uses lite coconut milk, which is canned and sold in the Asian section of most supermarkets. It’s not too fatty, but still has a nice richness that far surpasses milk beverages. If you want a higher fat option, go ahead and use full-fat coconut milk. It will make your dairy-free raspberry smoothie bowls even creamier, and will add a light coconut flavor.
If you need coconut-free, you can use your dairy-free milk beverage of choice, but it won’t be quite as creamy. Another option is to use soft silken tofu, which also adds some protein!
If you need banana-free, I suggest swapping frozen mango for the banana. Mango is delicious with raspberries, but it can be tart if not ripe enough. If you use mango that’s just too tart, drizzle in a little honey or add a few drops of stevia to sweeten things up.
