Protein Cookie Butter Raspberry Smoothie Bowl


There is something really special about having a Smoothie Bowl for Breakfast.  Having one of these is almost like having dessert for breakfast except that they are a whole lot healthier! 

This version I am sharing with you today contains only a very few natural and wholesome (for the most part) ingredients and goes together in literally minutes, making for a very quick breakfast indeed. Five minutes tops.

You will need a heavy duty blender, but other than that no special equipment is needed other than a spoon!

Frozen raspberries and strawberries are blitzed together with some milk, cookie butter,  and vanilla protein powder until the mixture is smooth. It takes literally minutes.

Poured into a bowl and topped with your favorite toppings, these are not only quick and easy, but quite healthy as well, providing you with several of your five a day!  Plus the protein powder helps to keep you feeling full until lunch time! 

Naked Pea Protein Powder 

The protein powder I used is called Vanilla Pea protein powder. It contains only three natural ingredients. Vanilla, coconut sugar and pea protein which has been extracted from yellow split peas grown on Canadian and American farms.

Pea Protein is a protein which is easily absorbed by the body, making it an excellent plant-based alternative to whey protein, which means it is also vegan. 

Vanilla Pea Protein Powder

As you can see it is very finely powdered and mixes in very well with whatever you add it to.  It is also free from additives and artificial sweeteners, using only coconut sugar to sweeten it.  It has a lovely Vanilla flavor that goes very well in smoothies.

Its been processed via water extraction without the use of chemicals on environmentally friendly farms, which means it is also good for the environment.

Certified gluten free, it is also GMO free, Dairy free, and soy free.  I really like that it is produced exclusively on American and Canadian farms. This also helps to lower its carbon footprint. 

The more food that we can eat that is sourced closer to home, the better it is for our environment.

I got mine from Naked Nutrition.  It came with a handy scoop for measuring.

There are only a very few basic ingredients needed to make the smoothie itself. With these plus a food processor you are well on your way.  The recipe makes only one serving.  My smoothie blender only makes basically one serving at a time.

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) milk of your choice (almond, soy, oat, etc.)
  • 2/3 cup (127g) frozen raspberries
  • 2/3 cup (127g) frozen sliced strawberries
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (Approximately 4 TBS)
  • 1 TBS Biscoff cookie butter

I used frozen berries that I got from my local shops. I also used regular lactose free milk. You can use any kind of milk you want. If you are a vegan you would want to use an oat, soy or even coconut milk. Whatever works for you! 

There is the protein powder. I highly recommend the Naked Pea Vanilla Protein powder.  There is no funny taste.  Just protein, a bit of sweet and nice vanilla flavor.

I used Speculoos Cookie Butter, which is also called Biscoff or Lotus butter. It tastes just like those moreish cookies you get when you are flying or at the side of your coffee cups when you go to a coffee shop in the UK. Very moreish.

What you choose to top it with is up to you.  I topped my bowl with some more fresh berries, rather than frozen.

I also added some chia seeds and keto granola, which is basically just nuts, seeds, and coconut.

Normally I would only use a sprinkling of chia seed, but when I was sprinkling it got away from me, so ignore the copious amounts and try to imagine it as just a sprinkle.

As Maxwell Smart would say, Sorry about that Chief!  If you are really young you won't know who I am talking about! haha My age is showing.

The real piece de resistance was the melted cookie butter I drizzled on top. Oh my, my  . . .  this was fantastic.

Cinnamony and incredibly moreish, it added the perfect finishing touch. It felt and tasted really decadent.

I just popped a TBS of the cookie butter into a bowl and melted it in the microwave. About 20 to 25 seconds on high.

Drizzle it back and forth over the top with a spoon. Mmmmmagnificent!

I loved that this went together so quickly.  The fact that it was incredibly delicious didn't hurt either. Smoothie bowls are much thicker than smoothies and are meant to be eaten with a spoon, just like ice cream, except they are not ice cream.

They just look and taste like it.

I really hope that you will be inspired to want to try to make one of these for yourself.  The protein powder really does help to keep you full until lunch time. I highly recommend!

If you are a bit worried at the expense of buying protein powder or thinking you won't possibly use it, think again, and do check out a few other ideas for using it that I have given at the bottom of this post.

Protein PB & J Smoothie Bowl

I also made a Peanut Butter and Jam Smoothie Bowl, inspired by one I discovered on Skinny Taste. That one used frozen blueberries and strawberries, as well as peanut butter, and the milk and vanilla protein powder. 

I topped it with fresh blueberries, chia seed and keto granola.

Oatmeal Protein Energy Balls

Another treat that we made with the Protein powder was these amazing Oatmeal Protein Energy Balls from The Healthy Maven. We used chopped dates instead of raisins, and some raw unsweetened coconut flakes in addition to the Vanilla Pea Protein powder and other ingredients. 

They were incredibly delicious and what I would call very moreish.

I cannot recommend the Naked Vanilla Pea Protein enough. It is an excellent product.  It was packed really well for shipping and arrived totally intact.  With 27 grams of protein per serving and only 120 calories it is a nutritional powerhouse.  

I have not tasted it on its own, but only mixed into other things and it works very well in that way. If there is one drawback to this product it is that here in Canada it is only available in the 5 lb/2.27 Kg size.  I am sharing this with my sister.  I am also going to try freezing some to see if I can keep it for longer that way.    In any case I give this product two thumbs up!
