Oooooo - it's getting to be my favorite time of year (minus the daylight savings part)! But spring and warmer weather means it's time to start making one of my most favorite midday meals/snacks - my smoothie bowls. I like making my smoothies nice and thick and putting them in a bowl because at least that way I feel like I'm enjoying a true meal. Rather than sucking something through a straw. (Unless I'm in the car - then that is the preferable option). I'll give you the foundation for a great bowl here but this is an excellent opportunity to play with your food and see what combos you come up with. I keep the sugar content lower by using little banana and berries. Get ready to bliss out!
1/4 cup liquid - unsweetened vanilla almond milk is my go to
huge handful spinach or kale
1 serving protein powder of choice (I love SunWarrior brand)
2 tbsp powdered peanut butter (or 1 tbsp of the real deal)
1 tbsp ground flax
1 tsp chia
dash sea salt
1/4 frozen banana
1 cup frozen blueberries
Place all ingredients into blender in the order listed. This will prevent the powdered ingredients from flying all over the place and make for an easy blend. Blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl and scrape out all the goodness. Top with options from list above. Dig in.
