The Blueberry Bliss Smoothie Bowl Recipe

By VegetaFull

🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes


(1) 15 oz. can of cooked cannellini beans (1½ cups) drained and well rinsed

2 large very ripe bananas

2 large pitted medjool dates

2 oz. (¼ cup) of unsweetened almond milk

1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 teaspoon of organic lemon zest

1 teaspoon of ground star anise

1/8 teaspoon of fine sea salt

2 tablespoons of almond butter

15 oz. (1½ cups) of frozen blueberries


1First add the smoothie bowl base and sweeteners to the blender container: the white beans, bananas and dates. If using canned beans, drain and thoroughly rinse the beans to avoid a beany taste. One 15 oz. can is approximately 1½ cups. If you have cooked dried beans, just measure out 1½ cups. Very ripe bananas are naturally very sweet and, along with dates, make for a pleasantly sweet smoothie bowl without adding any refined sugar.

2Next add the liquids and flavorings: the almond milk, lemon juice and zest, the ground anise and salt. The salt helps marry all the flavors together.

3Add the almond butter and frozen blueberries next.

4Securely attach the lid to your container and blend util creamy, starting on low speed and working up to medium speed. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides of the container or use the tamper (with a Vitamix) to push the food down and around toward the blade. This will take about a minute or more, depending on what type of blender you are using.

5Pour the creamy mixture, which will be the consistency of pancake batter, into two or three bowls and top with shaved almonds and fresh blueberries.
