Can you believe Valentine’s Day is around the corner?! I got really in the mood looking at Vday-inspired food, decor, and fashion browsing Pinterest yesterday. That’s also how I got the idea for this pink smoothie bowl. I’ve been obsessed with smoothie bowls ever since I came across the Kynd Community’s Instagram (a really cool plant-based cafe in Bali). And baby doesn’t seem to mind either.
Once February hits, I’m really in an all pink mood (ok, actually anytime of the year 😉). I used raspberries to achieve this rich pink color. Raspberries are just the ultimate Valentine’s day fruit for me. Ok, besides strawberries. I also just LOVE raspberries. These little powerhouse are filled with antioxidants like Vitamins C and E, selenium, and beta carotene. They are also a good source of fiber with one cup containing 8 g. And they contain folate which is very important for proper cell division and is ofentimes recommended during pregnancy (now I know why I’ve been craving them so much lately). As I’d need any more excuses to eat raspberries.
I also used hemp milk for the first time. Not really my favorite in coffee (it just lacks taste and richness), I absolutely love it in smoothie bowls! But you can of course use any plant-based milk you like.
Are you ready to dive into this pink deliciousness? I promise you, this will become your new favorite brekkie or dessert well beyond Valentine’s Day.
