Smoothie Bowls.. get in my belly!

I LOVE.. love love love love, Smoothie Bowls!  I will eat these for breakfast, lunch and even dinner on nights where I don’t feel like making an extravagant meal.  They are so easy, and super delicious, not to mention nutritious too!  If you are looking for something delicious, easy and quick to whip up, try one of these smoothies bowls!

When I make my smoothie bowls I ALWAYS add frozen cauliflower, its an easy way to get some vegetables in your diet and it makes the smoothies so much smoother!  I know it sounds super weird, but just try it and I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Also, another great supplement that I have been adding to all my smoothies lately is collagen powder.  Collagen powder helps to add important amino acids you might be missing in your diet. When using collagen powder you are benefiting body in these ways:

  • supporting hair, skin and nails
  • for joint health
  • to encourage skin elasticity and reduce the signs of aging
  • improving digestion
  • as a protein source

 

MatchaCado Smoothie (Avocado + Matcha)IMG_7250

BASE: 1 Cup Almond Milk, or any kind of milk you prefer.  I also use Coconut water + Almond milk.

  • 1/4 Avocado (if you add a frozen 1/4, it makes it creamier)
  • 2 Tsp, matcha powder
  • 1/2 cup Cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup Frozen Strawberries
  • 1/4 cup Frozen Pineapple
  • 1 Scoop protein powder, I used Vanilla.  My protein of choice is Tone it Up protein, which is plant based.
  • 1 Scoop Collagen Powder, there are many out there!  Just make sure to find one that will blend easily into your smoothies.

Blend all together and enjoy! If it is too thick and it is not blending, go ahead and add a bit more milk.

Create your own MASTERPIECE and add toppings such as, more Avocado, Nuts/Seeds, Honey, Matcha, Granola, Fruit!  The eyes are the way to the heart!

**One main reason I really like to put my smoothies in a bowl is because you are able to trick your mind that you are having a full meal.  Its the spoon to mouth movement that helps me get that “full” dinner effect. Even though it is a smoothie, it has all the macro nutrients (fat, carbohydrates, protein) in the ingredients needed for a full meal 🙂

PBB Coffee+Cauliflower (Peanut Butter Banana)

  • 1 Cup Almond Milk
  • Half Frozen Banana
  • 1/2 Cup Frozen Cauliflower
  • 1 Scoop Chocolate Protein
  • 1 TBSP Peanut Butter Powder or a Tablespoon or real peanut butter
  • 4-5 Frozen Coffee Cubes

Blend all ingredients in a blender and enjoy as a smoothie bowl! 🙂

Time for those wonderful toppings! I like to add coconut, pumpkin seeds, granola, cinnamon.  So many options, I guess you will have to keep trying more smoothie bowls to try them all out!
