Raspberry-Coconut Smoothie Bowl with Collagen
When it comes to breakfast bowls, we thought we’d been there, done that. But this raspberry-coconut smoothie bowl with collagen from Coconuts and Kettlebells by Noelle Tarr and Stefani Ruper has us newly obsessed. It incorporates a scoop of powdered collagen peptides, which are purported to reduce wrinkles and inflammation. Plus, it only takes five minutes to whip up. We’re officially making it every morning.
Smoothie Bowl Base
1 banana, peeled, sliced and frozen
1 cup full-fat coconut milk
2 tablespoons coconut water
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon powdered grass-fed collagen peptides
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Fresh fruit, such as raspberries, sliced kiwi or sliced dragon fruit
Chopped nuts, such as walnuts, pecans or pumpkin seeds
Unsweetened coconut flakes
Freeze-dried fruit chunks
1. Place the banana, coconut milk and coconut water in a blender and pulse until combined. Add the raspberries, almond butter, collagen peptides and vanilla extract and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender as necessary.
2. Pour the smoothie into a bowl, sprinkle with the desired toppings and delight in eating a smoothie with a spoon.
