Raspberry Spinach Smoothie Bowl

For a couple of years now we have been dealing with my daughter’s tummy issues. Her tummy aches would come but after she lost three pounds in two months we had to get serious. While I would love to lose three pounds, it is a lot for a nine year old. Due to the weight loss, we were sent to a pediatric gastroenterologist. With some trepidation we went to the initial appointment. Surprisingly we were immediately put at ease by the doctor’s easy manner and slow methodical approach. He first recommended changing her breakfast to a spinach smoothie.

I still laugh when I saw my daughter’s face. A spinach smoothie? Seriously spinach? I quickly reassured her I could make a spinach smoothie that would not taste at all of spinach. The doctor recommended we use half a banana, a fist full (her fist size) of frozen fruit, and a fist full of spinach. In addition, I promised her I would add yogurt and milk so it would taste like a milkshake. In addition we explained the importance of this morning spinach smoothie. The mixture of fruit and vegetables would change the chemistry of her stomach thus alleviating her stomach aches.

With medication along with the spinach smoothie, her stomach aches have vanished and she has finally gained a pound. Hallelujah! However, she got tired of having a smoothie every single morning.  Although she knew it stopped her tummy aches, she was starting to complain about that morning smoothie and would rarely finish it. Like an answer to my prayers, I received some Silk non-dairy yogurt alternative. Up to this point I had been using whole milk yogurt. So the next morning I made the smoothie with the Silk yogurt alternative. Lo and behold, she exclaimed that this was the best smoothie she ever had.

For the next five days, she not only devoured her spinach smoothie, but she wanted more to eat afterwards. I was walking on cloud nine. As I had run out of the Silk yogurt alternative, I went back to the whole yogurt I had in the fridge. Suddenly she stopped finishing her smoothie as she said it wasn’t as good. The only difference was the yogurt. Let me tell you I am more than happy to stock my refrigerator full of Silk or So Delicious yogurt alternative if it will create a happy breakfast routine for her. Luckily for me Target has it on Cartwheel. Just download the Cartwheel app and get 15% off Silk and So Delicious products from May 7th to May 27, 2017.

Consequently I thought I should follow her example and enjoy a spinach smoothie of my own. However I decided to take my spinach smoothie up a notch by making it a gorgeous smoothie bowl.  As her favorite fruit to add is raspberries, I went with it. The raspberries make the smoothie a brilliant pink color. In addition I chose my favorite toppings. Cashews add a satisfying crunch to the spinach smoothie bowl. Fresh sliced bananas and raspberries add more fiber and nutrition. Make this spinach smoothie bowl your own by adding your favorite toppings.

  1. That looks like a lovely way to start the day! Especially since I love both spinach and raspberries!
  2. Wouldn't even believe there's spinach in there! I'm always looking for ways to sneak some veggies into my breakfast :)
