Smoothie Bowl

If you are keeping up with social feeds and posts, you’ve probably noted that smoothie bowls are all the rage right now!  A sister or close cousin to our friend, the protein shake, this breakfast or snack option can be a great way to spice up any healthy-eating fatigue you may be experiencing and is a great way to slow us down – as it requires you to eat with a spoon versus solely just slurping it down with a straw.

The recipe below will provide you a very balanced smoothie bowl when it comes to macronutrients and nutrition.  Most of the appealing recipes out there today are usually overloaded with too much fruit and too much sugar (not a great way to start the day).  This recipe will not only provide you ample fat and protein, but it’s got a couple secret and green ingredients designed to amp up some vitamins, minerals and fiber while providing a tasty crunch.  Enjoy! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 serving of Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 4 ounces of plain, full fat, Greek Yogurt
  • ¼ Avocado
  • ½ cup of Spinach
  • 1 ounce of unsweetened coconut milk
  • 3-4 ice cubes
  • 1/3 sliced banana (garnish)
  • 1 Tbsp pistachios (garnish)
  • 4-5 Blackberries (garish)
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Chips (garnish)

Instructions:

  1. In a blender, mix protein, yogurt, avocado, spinach and milk with ice until desired consistency.  Transfer into a bowl and garnish by layering banana, pistachios, berries and coconut in unique rows.  Enjoy!
