Blogging has opened up a whole other world of individuals with similar interests like myself, and I absolutely love it! One of these lovely ladies is Macy, the blogger behind Paleo Crumbs. Not only isMacy a fantastic baker and paleo-foodie, but she is also a follow of Christ, of which makes our friendship extra special. After meeting up at Paleof(x) just last month, both of us decided it would be fun to guest post on each others blogs, on the same day. While you can find my Autoimmune-Paleo Veggie Bacon Bites on her site, I hope you will enjoy Macy’s equally fun and delicious take on the typical smoothie. You can reach Macy through her blog, Paleo Crumbs, as well as through Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram.
Hi everyone! I’m Macy the blogger from Paleo Crumbs! And I am so excited to be guest posting on Gabriella’s blog today! Gabriella and I quickly became friends with our shared love for being in the kitchen, living with a chronic illness, and being teen foodie bloggers, as well as just having a passion for real food! I am so glad to have met Gabriella in this blogging community and was glad to get the chance to meet her in person at Paleo f(x) this year! We have been talking about doing this guest post/ recipe swap for a while now and I am so excited to share this recipe with you! I make smoothies pretty much daily as they are easy to digest for my stomach, so I love trying out new smoothie recipes and getting creative with my own! Smoothie bowls are pretty much just another fun way to eat a smoothie but thicker and eaten with a spoon instead of through a straw! But the real fun part is the toppings! Once you make your smoothie and pour it into your favorite bowl, top it with fresh fruit, grain free granola, shredded coconut, hemp seeds, or whatever your heart desires! And get creative and make your smoothie bowl a piece of art by arranging your fruit and toppings in fun ways! If you are like me and just prefer to enjoy your smoothie with a straw, just skip the toppings step and use more liquid while blending! Have fun making your smoothie bowl art and enjoy! And, thanks, Gabriella, for inviting me to share this recipe on your blog! 😀
Raspberry Acai Smoothie Bowl (dairy free & paleo)
By: Macy Diulus
Time: 5 min.
- 1/3 cup raspberries, frozen
- ½ frozen acai packet
- ½ cup organic baby spinach
- ½ banana, frozen
- 4-6 chunks of frozen mango
- ½ cup maple water (or coconut water)
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 tbsp. hemp seeds
- ½ – 1 tbsp collagen
- 1 tsp. chia seeds
- Fresh fruit and berries
- Hemp seeds
- Chia seeds
- Grain free granola
- Shredded coconut
- Nut/seed butter
- In a blender (preferably high-speed) blend together all the ingredients until smooth and creamy. Pour into a bowl and top with desired toppings! Eat with a spoon and enjoy!
Generally, smoothie bowls are a thicker consistency, but if you prefer them to be thinner or want to drink this with a straw, just blend with more maple water to reach your desired consistency.
Use organic produce when possible.
Frozen fruit and fresh fruit can be subbed interchangeably, but frozen fruit produces a thicker and colder smoothie!
Maple water can easily be subbed for coconut water!
Frozen acai packets can be found in the frozen fruit section of most grocery stores, if you aren’t able to find it, just use more berries!
