Breakfast Smoothie Bowl – With Strawberries And Raspberries

Friends, you are reading this post on a “work week”, however, this post was written on a Sunday night which was intended to go live on Sunday afternoon.  Cooking, kids, along with their stories covering the entire week got in the way. You know the days where every kid has a story to tell and it takes forrrrrevvvverrrrr for them to tell you one important element? Only to find out all they wanted to share with you is that their friends wanted to do is tell them about the names of the trucks they learned from their dad? Well, that was my Sunday!

I am not a breakfast smoothie person. Not that I don’t want to be one, I don’t have the time to make smoothies in the morning – as simple as they are to make. I prefer smoothies in the afternoon or for dinner.

This particular little one is one precious little kid.  This kid will eat anything and everything under the sun. Especially if it’s something healthy.

On Sunday morning I decided to make myself a breakfast smoothie while I prepare other contents for you lovely people.  My precious little one, of course, says to me “mommy what’s that? and I want some”. The little kiddo did not even wait for me to answer the question. Naturally, my response was “sure, no problem”. Meanwhile, I’m thinking to myself I’m just going to make my little kiddo a simple smoothie and see if all will go well. Needless to say, I grabbed the raspberry and strawberries along with the milk, put it all in the blender, added a little vanilla extract, and voila – This post (breakfast) is created!

While blending away I thought to myself if this kid is asking for something healthy, why not make it healthy all the way. So, for toppings, I used granny apples, chopped almonds, and raspberries. After all, a healthy morning usually includes a breakfast filled with fruits, correct? I’m sure I read it or heard it somewhere J

Here are some quick fun Nutrition Facts regarding the key ingredients used in this recipe:

Raspberries 65 (per 1 cup)

StrawberriesCalories 4 (1 medium)

After I was done blending away, I put everything in a bowl, fixed it up nicely for my little kiddo and breakfast is served!

Super Easy Low-Calorie Cloud Bread

I know, I know. But for as weird-sounding as cloud bread is, they are so extremely good.

If you have not tried cloud bread, right now it is the time to do so. It is carb free!

We’re talking Airy. Fluffy. Light. Full of protein. And Super Easy Low-Calorie Cloud Bread.

Friends, if you are like me and looooovesss carb but carbs don’t love you back, then this is a way to have that guilt-free moment without breaking all the rules.

Now, imagine this…there are 17 calories in 1 large egg white (raw), and there are 55 calories in 1 large egg yolk (raw). Therefore, 72 calories in 1 large raw egg.

Large brown eggs

Keeping that in mind, one large slice white bread contains 79 calories. Whereas toasted wheat bread contains 75 calories.

See where we are coming with fewer calories with the egg? Furthermore, one large raw egg contains 6g of protein.

A friend of mine introduced me to this bread many years ago and I have found ways to introduce

it to my guests in gatherings as a delicacy. I especially like to serve it for Easter, Mother’s Day brunch, and even at Christmas sometimes.

This type of bread is one that most people will never expect, but are usually happy when they do get a chance to try it.

It is a shame cloud bread doesn’t receive much recognition.

Bit of honesty for you: As easy as it is to make this bread, I messed it up a million times before I finally got it right. One reason being is that I had no clue that after whisking the egg white, I should not have let it sit for a long period on the counter, otherwise it will become runny. I cannot help but laugh a little every time I think about this particular day. I had no idea what I was doing, friends.

Super Easy Low-Calorie Cloud Bread

After going through the process for the millionth time, I finally had success!

Despite not being head over heels with my first few attempts, I did tweak it along the way over the years. For example, instead of using cream cheese, I switched to something easier such as cream cheese spread because it helps enhance the flavor and texture. In my opinion, it is less heavy. The final texture of the cloud bead has a lighter consistency.

I also added a pinch of salt. My mother in law has ingrained in my head to “always add a pinch of salt”. Ha-ha!

I used distilled white vinegar because it helps keep the egg together.

It is paired perfectly with any main dish such as the Mixed Vegetable Mushroom Soup or the Healthy Butternut Squash Soup.

Focus on the good. Start your day with a smile!
