The Cherry Blossom Smoothie Bowl (vegan and fruit-sweetened) Recipe

By VegetaFull

🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes


2 large ripe bananas

1¾ cups (425 grams) of red aduki beans (one 15oz can) drained and well rinsed

¼ cup (2 oz.) of almond milk, unsweetened

1 teaspoon of almond extract

1/8 teaspoon of fine sea salt

2 tablespoons of almond butter

2 large medjool dates, pitted

1½ cups of frozen cherries, pitted


1If using canned beans, drain and thoroughly rinse the beans to avoid a beany taste. One 15 oz. can is approximately 1¾ cups. If you have cooked dried beans, measure out 1¾ cups.

2Add the beans, bananas, and almond milk to a blender container, followed by the almond extract, salt, almond butter, dates, and frozen cherries.

3Securely attach the lid to your container and blend until creamy, starting at 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.

4Pour the cherry pink mixture, which will be the consistency of loose pancake batter, into two or three bowls and top with sliced almonds and fresh or frozen cherries.

5Notes: Enjoy as a protein-packed, easy breakfast, anytime you want a taste of spring!
