All of your favorite flavors served in one, big, healthy bowl of deliciousness! Get creative with your smoothie bowl and add whatever healthy toppings you like.
I know this may not make sense, but I like having a smoothie bowl better than a smoothie. Weird?
It might be.
Maybe it’s because I love eating soup so much? Or maybe it’s because I love adding toppings to my ice cream and this feels similar?
No clue. I just know I love smoothie bowls with lots of healthy toppings.
And let’s be honest, the toppings are the best part. You can try to put toppings in a smoothie but you just might choke drinking it.
Ok, I highly doubt you will choke but you get what I am saying. There’s no need to write me and tell me that won’t choke from drinking a smoothie.
This smoothie bowl is packed with protein from not only the protein powder, but also from the chia and hemp seeds, which makes it a wonderful pre-workout or even post-workout meal. I also added lots of healthy nuts and seeds to balance this out and to give it a little crunchy texture.
I love that added crunch. You can go ahead and top your smoothie bowl with nuts, seeds, granola, sugar free chocolate chips, unsweetened shredded coconut…the possibilities are endless.
You just might have to get a little creative, that’s all.
- 1/2 cup cherries pitted
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
- 1 scoop protein powder
- 1/2 lime juiced
- sliced almonds
- hemp seeds
- chia seeds
- sliced cherries
- Blend the first 5 ingredients together in a high speed blender until smooth.
- Add your toppings and serve immediately.
Today is the day, hop on the smoothie bowl bandwagon! I bet you love them as much as I do!
A smoothie bowl almost feels like you are eating a bowl of gazpacho, except it’s sweet, if that makes any sense?
You can also experiment with fruits and see which ones you like best. I also have a recipe for my Blueberry Mango Smoothie Bowl which we all love.
It’s all a personal preference and what you are craving that day. And let’s be honest, it is also about whatever you have in your house at the time so you aren’t running to the grocery store 5 times a week (like me!)
I know I mention protein powder in the list of ingredients which can be quite vague. Most people have their favorite protein powder that use religiously.
I thought I would share some of the ones that I recommend that aren’t loaded with junk. Unfortunately many of the protein powders that they sell are filled with so many added preservatives, artificial sweetness and chemicals that I just don’t want to consume.
I like Orgain Protein Powder which is organic, vegan, low carb gluten free, dairy free, lactose free, dairy free, no sugar added, soy free and non-GMO. It contains all quality ingredients that I recommend and it tastes delicious.
I also like Sunwarrior Protein Powder which is organic, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and contains electrolytes, healthy fatty acids and antioxidants as well. I like the taste but being completely honest, I think the Orgain Protein Powder tastes better.
The above two protein powders are vegan and dairy free as well. Some people prefer whey protein over a plant based protein. This one is Grass Fed Whey Protein Isolate and is completely tasteless. It is low carb, sugar free, non-GMO and gluten free as well.
There are so many choices in the grocery store these days that it is always helpful to read the ingredient labels to check for all of that extra garbage.
I always tell my clients that you have to read your ingredients too, not just the nutrition information. Something can have the perfect amount of calories, fat and protein but also can be loaded with chemicals and junk.
