Brighten Up Your Day With This Rainbow Pride Bowl Recipe

Brighten Up Your Day With This Rainbow Pride Bowl Recipe

We love a good smoothie bowl recipe. Perfect for breakfast or a post-workout snack, protein-packed smoothie bowls can help you satisfy your sweet tooth and eat more fresh fruits and veggies each day.

And this rainbow smoothie bowl recipe is the perfect way to celebrate love, equality, and diversity this Pride Month — and all year long!

Eating the rainbow is a great way to get a wide variety of nutrients from your fruits and veggies. For this Pride-inspired recipe, we took that advice literally and topped this creamy smoothie bowl with a rainbow of red raspberries, mandarin orange, green grapes, and blueberries.

The result: a recipe loaded with vibrant color and love-is-love vibes. (No food coloring necessary!)

Rainbow Smoothie Bowl Ingredients

  • ½ large ripe banana
  • 2 green grapes
  • 1 small mandarin orange
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup ice
  • ¾ cup reduced-fat (2%) plain Greek yogurt
  • ¾ cup cauliflower rice
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 9 fresh (or frozen) raspberries
  • 6 fresh (or frozen) blueberries
  • 2 tsp. unsweetened shredded coconut

To make the base for this smoothie bowl, we blended a powerhouse fruit-and-veggie combo of banana and cauliflower with Greek yogurt, almond milk, and a touch of vanilla for a creamy consistency.

Riced cauliflower not only makes the perfect blank canvas for our colorful rainbow, but this pale veggie also adds vitamin C and other important nutrients. Half a banana provides potassium and fiber and gives this bowl natural sweetness and a velvety texture, while Greek yogurt amps up the protein content.

Even if you haven’t done anything crafty since grade school, creating the rainbow will be easy and fun. Simply slice the grapes, separate the mandarin orange into segments, and, along with the berries, artfully arrange to create the iconic rainbow design.

Then sprinkle with coconut flakes, snap a photo for the ‘gram — a crucial step with a recipe this pretty — and dig in!
