blueberry smoothie bowl

blueberry-1blueberry-2blueberry-3blueberry-5

It has been one hot summer! Smoothie bowls are so awesome for summer, and I’ve really been loving blueberry season this year. I’ve also had constant cravings for coconut, dark chocolate, and nut butters, so all those things are in this bowl. They really go together well though, and the bowl is packed with anti-oxidants. I’ll for sure be turning back to this bowl again and again!

Quickie recipe! This makes 1 large bowl or 2 small bowls. For the smoothie, blend 1 banana, 2 cups blueberries, 1/4 cup coconut yogurt, 2 tbsp almond butter, 1 tbsp real maple syrup, 1 – 1.5 cups almond milk (or your choice of milk), small scoop protein/superfood powder (if you use it), small scoop flaxseed.

Top with granola, dark chocolate pieces, blueberries, and hemp seeds.

Enjoy and stay cool!

I’ve been trying several different smoothie bowls lately, and this one is a super quick go-to pick for me. The trick is to create a thick and consistent smoothie so you can layer the fruit and granola right on top. Simple and delicious blueberry, banana, and cinnamon goodness in a bowl.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Flav-R-Pac frozen blueberries
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup granola
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Directions

  1. Blend frozen blueberries (leaving a few for topping), 1 sliced banana, greek yogurt, and almond milk until smooth.
  2. Serve into bowl, and top with remaining blueberries, 1 sliced banana, and granola. Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy.

acai bowl

acai bowl-2 acai bowl-1You’ve probably been seeing a lot about acai bowls lately..they are hot right now. I used to buy the Sambazon acai berry packets to make smoothies back in the day. I remember really loving the taste of acai, but was confused why people are putting it in a bowl now and making it a big deal. I gave it a shot, bought the Sambazon packets yet again along with some toppings, and actually really enjoyed it. Acai berry originates from the Amazon rain forest, and is rich in antioxidants , fiber, and heart-healthy fats. Acai bowls got big in Hawaii and California, and are now spreading across the U.S. There are so many ways you can make them. Blend the acai (nice and thick) and top with anything like granola, fruit, nuts, seeds, coconut flakes, cacao nibs, or avocado. Here’s my version:

Ingredients

  • acai berry packet
  • 1/2 cup almond milk or juice
  • 1 big scoop of plain greek yogurt
  • Pack of each strawberries, blueberries, blackberries
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup granola
  • 1 tbsp cacao nibs

Directions

  1. Blend acai berry packet (3.5 oz) with 1/2 cup almond milk, 1 scoop of greek yogurt, 1 banana, and 1 cup of berries. If not yet at desired thickness, add more berries and greek yogurt.
  2. Serve into bowl, and top with granola, remaining berries, banana, and cacao nibs.

So easy. Enjoy!
