I’ve had a smoothie bowl three times this week, and I’ve had oatmeal twice. WHATTTTTTT. Danielle, is that you???????? Yup- still me. I think it’s safe to say that smoothie bowls are my new obsession. I’ve been allllll about a good bowl lately.
I feel like you can never go wrong with a smoothie bowl (well, you can if you accidentally over do it on the spinach and under do it on the fruit, but thats a whole other story). The combos are endless, and every time I think I’ve found my new favorite combo… BOOM! Another one comes along.
For me, a good bowl is all about the base. I used to only use fresh fruit for my base, and I have no idea how I was living. Frozen fruit is the WAY to go. It makes it not only creamier, but so much thicker. Plus, if you freeze it for about thirty minutes after you make it… MIND BLOWINGLY THICK (not a word, lets move on).
Toppings are also very important to me. I think that I tend to stick to my favorites- strawberries, granola, coconut. Today I also added chopped nuts and some PB2, which was life changing. Gonna try it with almond butter next FOR SURE. I also try to add protein powder to my bowls as well,as it adds to the thickness and keeps me fueled. I personally like to switch it up between Vega and Ka’Chava, but it’s up to you!
INGREDIENTS (Serves one):
1 1/2 frozen bananas
1 frozen peach
One cup frozen mixed berries
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
5-6 ice cubs
1/2 cup cashew milk
Toppings of choice (I like granola, coconut, fresh fruit, nuts).
1.) Combine all your ingredients in a blender, and blend well. You will probably have to stop your blender to mix it around, but that is normal.
2.) Once blended well, pour in a bowl, smooth out the base, and stick in the freezer. Prepare your toppings (I’d say wait around twenty minutes to add so your base gets extra thick).
3.) Take the smoothie out, add your toppings, and enjoy!
