The latest trend in healthy living is adding as much nutrition to our diets as possible, but with minimal fuss — because really, who has time for complicated recipes, right? But for someone with finicky diet standards this can be easier said than done. My sister-in-law introduced me to smoothie bowls from a local establishment and I instantly became obsessed with this quick and easy food option! I love this delicious healthy snack.

I am partial to certain textures and so for me, eating a lot of healthy foods is just out of the question. Smoothie bowls are an option that allows me to customize to include foods with textures that I enjoy AND it almost feels as though I’m treating myself to a sweet dessert. Here is a recipe to get you started but you can change this up in so many different ways to fit your own personal needs.

My go-to recipe is as follows but feel free to alter things to fit the consistency and flavor you like or to address individual nutritional needs.

Smoothie Bowl - ingredients and blender

 

Smoothie Bowl Ingredients:

1 cup of mixed fruit

1 frozen banana

¾ cup milk of your choice

½ tbsp flax seed

½ tbsp chia seed

1 scoop of whey protein

1 tbsp of pure organic maple syrup

Smoothie Bowl Toppings:

Granola

Fresh fruit

Coconut chips

Almond butter

 

In a blender add the fruit, frozen banana, milk of your choice, flax and chia seeds, whey protein, and organic maple syrup. Blend thoroughly. You may need to add more milk to the smoothie and that is okay, but the smoothie should be relatively thick like ice cream or frozen yogurt. Once you have finished blending, pour the smoothie into a bowl and garnish with granola, fresh fruit, coconut chips, and drizzle with almond butter.

Tips for a better Smoothie Bowl:

  • You can use any blend of fruit you like and for an added nutritional kick, mix in some acai which can usually be found in the frozen food aisle at your local grocery store.
  • Bananas tend to be sweeter when you wait until they are brown and spotty all over. Break them into chunks on a plate or cookie sheet and freeze them, they also add a natural sweetness to your smoothie.
  • You can use any brand of milk you prefer, but I personally think that almond/cashew blended milk has a creamier texture and a higher protein version to add even more nutrition.
  • You can omit the flax seed, chia seed, and even the protein if you choose. The above recipe is just my usual go-to because as a busy mom of four, I know I don’t always get the nutrients I need.
  • You can top your smoothie with anything! Be creative! Use nuts, cereals, coconut flakes, chocolate chips, peanut butter, fresh fruit, etc. This is your smoothie bowl! Give it some personality. Smoothie bowls are meant to be fun! Awaken your taste buds!

Paying attention to your health is important, so is treating yourself once in a while, too. Smoothie bowls offer the best of both worlds.
