KICK-START YOUR DAY WITH A SMOOTHIE BOWL!

Posted in Medshield Lifestyle & Fitness   |   August 8th, 2020

While smoothie bowls have been around a while, these decorated dishes don’t seem to be going anywhere, and it’s easy to see the appeal. They’re bright, beautiful and thicker in consistency, so it feels more like a frozen dessert than just another snack. What a great way to start the day!

The recipe we put together (below) is so simple, and we hope you give it a try and love it!

It’s:

Creamy
Fruity
Naturally sweet
Nutrient-rich
Healthy
Satisfying
& Quick!

This makes the perfect breakfast or snack when you’re in a rush but need something substantial (and want something pretty). It’s especially great for the lockdown when we’re all looking for another way to trim down.

Ingredients

SMOOTHIE BOWL

  • 1 heaping cup organic frozen mixed berries
  • 1 small ripe banana (sliced and frozen)
  • 2-3 Tbsp light coconut or almond milk (plus more as needed)
  • 1 scoop plain or vanilla protein powder of choice* (optional)

TOPPINGS

  • 1 Tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut (desiccated)
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp hemp seeds
  • Granola (optional)
  • Fruit (optional)

Instructions

  • Add frozen berries and banana to a blender and blend on low until small bits remain – see photo.
  • Add a bit of coconut or almond milk and protein powder (optional), and blend on low again, scraping down sides as needed, until the mixture reaches a soft serve consistency (see photo).
  • Scoop into 1-2 serving bowls (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) and top with desired toppings (optional). You could use chia seeds, hemp seeds, coconut, strawberries, granola, and a nut or seed butter would be great here, too!
  • Best when fresh, though leftovers keep in the freezer for 1-2 weeks. Let thaw before enjoying.
