Health benefits of raspberries
These are great source of antioxidants and potassium with being essential for heart function. also. known to lower blood pressure, raspberries are low in calories too. With being low in sodium and high in fiber they are also known as superfoods.
I often use raspberries in my recipes and my raspberry brownies are by far the best. Often times I blend my raspberry smoothie and everyone loves my raspberry bars.
Raspberries – I used frozen raspberries to blend the smoothie and fresh raspberries to garnish. We loved the use of both fresh and frozen raspberries in this smoothie bowl.
Banana – I wanted to give it a creamy base and banana created an amazing base here. Also the combination of banana and raspberry is outstanding and compliments each other with its sweet and tart taste.
Dates – This helped in thickening and also naturally sweetened it perfectly.
Walnuts – This added healthy fats and more nutrition here.
Almond milk – I used almond milk to keep this smoothie bowl light and low in calories but any dairy free milk of your choice works here.
Toppings – Its absolutely flexible and you can use any toppings of your choice in this easy raspberry smoothie bowl.

How to make
Firstly, in the blender, I combined banana, dates, frozen raspberries, walnuts, almond milk and vanilla extract.
Secondly, I blended it smooth and creamy.
Next I poured in the serving bowl and stirred in chia seeds with a spoon until well blended.
Thereafter, I refrigerated it for 10 minutes so as to thicken and settle down.
When ready, I took it out and added my favorite toppings.
It was so delicious and satisfying. I often make this a night before and refrigerate for my busy mornings.
- It is important to refrigerate after stirring in chia seeds to the blended smoothie so that the raspberry smoothie bowl thickens and acquires a creamy texture.
- Most importantly blend it absolutely smooth for the best results.
Since its an overnight smoothie bowl so its prfect to consume it a day the next morning. If leftovers, you may wrap the bowl with a food saver clingy wrap and refrigerate for about 2 days.
It is high in protein and a perfcet post workout recovery meal too. I made this raspberry smoothie with natural ingredients and is super healthy.
I always prefer using high speed blender like Vitamix. The smoother its blended the better texture is achieved.
