I LOVE smoothie bowls. They’re healthy, delicious and you can customize them a million different ways. I’ve tried so many different smoothie bases and toppings, but I always come back to this one. I usually make it on the weekend, since I have regular smoothies during the week. It’s so easy to throw extra nutrients and superfoods into a smoothie, which really comes in handy when you’re a busy mom who has cookies for lunch most days. I make sure I always have frozen bananas, frozen spinach and protein powder on hand so I can make one anytime. Below are some of my favorite ingredients to add to my smoothie bowls.
1. Protein Powder
Since I don’t eat meat (other than seafood occasionally), I always put protein powder in my smoothie bowl to ensure that I start the day with a good amount of protein. I’ve been using GOOD Slim Body Protein for a few months now, and it’s amazing. It was formulated specifically for women (moms in particular), and it contains 16 grams of protein and 22 grams of vitamins and minerals. Of course, it’s an added bonus that it helps aid in healthy weight loss.
2. Greens Powder
Alkaline greens powders help detoxify the body and deliver high levels of antioxidants. Ora easy being green contains herbs that boost the immune system, support stress relief and aid in digestion. Morlife Alkalising Greens contain pre and probiotics to support gut health, calcium, magnesium, zinc and 21 super greens, fruits and veggies.
3. Collagen Peptides
I had been wanting to try Vital Protein Collagen Peptides ever since Kourtney Kardashian shared that she takes them every morning before breakfast. I finally got around to trying them, and now I include them in my morning smoothie whenever I remember to add them. They improve hair, skin, nails and joints. They even help combat wrinkles and cellulite. My favorite thing about them is that they come in these handy little packets, and they’re unflavored so you can basically add them to anything.
I’ll do another post soon about the different toppings I like to use, but I mainly wanted to share the recipe, and the benefits of the powders I add to my smoothies. I hope you guys enjoy the recipe!
