My First Attempt at Making a Smoothie Bowl

I normally drink smoothies; however, I wanted to try something different…make a smoothie bowl.  Do you drink smoothies or make smoothie bowls?  If you make smoothies, you know they are delicious.  And they are quick to make for breakfast or a mid-day snack, not to mention they provide energy!

Here is a simple recipe I want to share with you.

Berry Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

1/4 cup or less Almond Milk
1 Banana – peeled
1/2 cup Strawberries
1/4 Blueberries
1 small slice of lemon
1/2 cup Kale
1/2 c Yogurt
1/4 tsp Maca powder

Directions

Put all ingredients into a blender and blend.
Note: I added a little too much almond milk…lots of bubbles. The thicker the smoothie the better.
Top with hulled hemp seeds, cacao nibs, and sliced banana. Add nuts, chia seeds, fruit, and whatever else you like.

Don’t know what to do with those bananas that are over ripe?!  Here is an idea!  Add them to pancakes.  I just love them with blueberries! I add a half scoop of Arbonne protein powder to that I get my protein.  These pancakes provide a great boost of energy in the morning and they are healthy too!

Ingredients:

  • Whole Wheat Pancake Mix
  • 1/2 scoop of Arbonne Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1/2 cup almond milk – amount varies on how thick you want your pancakes
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen organic blueberries
  • 1 soft banana

Combine pancake mix, protein powder, coconut oil, cinnamon, egg, milk, and banana.  Add in blueberries.
