I’ve been on a total smoothie kick lately. They’re super quick to make on mornings when I’m rushing out the door, and they make a good snack before work to hold me over until dinner. The only problem I have with smoothies is that sometimes I sip on them too quickly and don’t realize that I’m actually eating until it’s all gone. Solution? Smoothie Bowl. I know it sounds silly because it’s literally the exact same thing I’d be drinking from a straw, but there’s something psychological about eating from a bowl rather than drinking your meal that fills me up. Does this happen to anyone else?
I also love how versatile smoothie bowls can be! Blend up your favorite smoothie and top it with anything you’d like. I love to add fresh fruit, granola, coconut flakes, and hemp seeds for some added nutrition! Again I’m using the same vega one protein powder that I did in this delicious strawberry and chia seed protein shake, but use whatever protein powder you’d like or opt to leave it out. If you don’t have protein powder, try adding 1/2 cup greek yogurt instead!
Coconut Berry Smoothie Bowl
1 pack vega one berry nutritional shake, or 1 scoop preferred protein powder
1/2 frozen banana, cut into chunks
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
hemp or chia seeds
Mix protein powder, banana, blueberries, almond milk, and coconut in a blender. Blend for 30 seconds or until done. Pour into a bowl and add desired toppings. Enjoy!
