My First Smoothie Bowl

March 8, 2017


 

Smoothies are a great way to get a ton of a nutrition into your diet, but sometimes it is fun to actually eat your food (rather than drink it). Who ever created the smoothie bowl was a pure genius, and obviously was sick of drinking their meals.  Smoothie bowls are a thick (sorbet like texture) smoothie, topped with crunchy goodness and eaten with a spoon  I love me some smoothies, so trying a smoothie bowl was an easy decision for me.

 

 

What you will need: Any smoothie recipe will work, you will just need to decrease the fluid content of the recipe so that the texture is a little thicker. You will also need a high speed blender that can handle frozen fruit concoctions.

Here is what I used:

  • 3/4 cup almond milk

  • Handful of cilantro leaves (why cilantro?  because it is an excellent source of antioxidants, Vitamin C and iron)

  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon (great source of vitamin C)

  • Quarter size piece of ginger (helps the lymphatic system and boosts immune function)

    • Mix with high speed blender almond milk, cilantro, lemon and ginger (about 1 minute)- then add:

  • 1 frozen banana

  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks

  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries

  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I used my hemp protein powder)

    • Mix with high speed blender until mixture becomes thick and creamy like sorbet.

    • Scoop into a bowl then top with:

  • Unsweetened coconut

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • Goji berries

Grab a spoon and dig in!
