Dark Berry

Dark fruits like the ones in this recipe contain anthocyanins, compounds that may not only protect
against heart disease but also cancer as well. And as Carissa Bonham, author of Beautiful Smoothie
Bowls (Skyhorse) puts it, “Did I mention they are delicious?”

1 small banana, peeled
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen blackberries
1 (3.5-oz) pack frozen açaí
3/4 cup coconut water

Toppings
1/3 cup dry coconut pieces
1/4 cup fresh or frozen pomegranate arils
1/4 cup raw cashews
3 fresh strawberries, halved

1. Combine all smoothie bowl ingredients in a blender jar and blend until smooth and no chunks remain.
2. Pour into a bowl and add toppings in rows on top of smoothie.

Yield: 1 bowl
