With warm summer weather right around the corner, smoothies are a perfect choice. Protein, fruit and vegetables can all be found in one tasty on-the-go drink. Enter the smoothie bowl.
These are the ingredients I put in my smoothie bowl. A variety of foods can be used to mix and match. Pick a few from the following categories, blend them and enjoy!
Step 1: Chose a liquid base. Some options are:
- Milk: makes the smoothie thicker
- Water: make the smoothie thinner
- Fruit Juice: adds sweetness and makes smoothie more thin
- Coconut water
Step 2: Add protein.
Step 3: Throw in some fruit. Some of my favorites are:
- Frozen berries
Step 4: Toss in vegetables. Some options are:
Step 5: Add in extras. I used cashews, almonds, chia seeds, flax seeds and an Emergen-C packet.
Step 6: Sweeten the smoothie more. I used honey and agave.
Step 7: Blend and garnish. The garnishing is the fun part. Use more fruit, granola, nuts and/or seeds.
Now you’re an artist with a tasty and healthy summer meal. Enjoy!
