I am constantly asked how I make smoothie bowls.. They’re easy, quick, simple and can be pretty, but it also took me awhile to figure out how people were making these beautiful creations at first. I like having the smoothie consistency along with chunks of fruits/veggies/nuts which is different from what you’d get in a standard smoothie obviously.. So it’s nice to change it up if you have a smoothie for breakfast everyday.
The smoothie bowl base is made with whichever fruit you want to use but with less water/milk you’d use in a standard smoothie so that it’s a little more thick/chunky. Then top with whatever you want! Super simple right?!
My favorite is a base of 3 super ripe bananas and meal replacement powder with almond milk! I like mine thick so my fruits can sit on top without sinking in 😉 These are by far my favorite breakfasts.. Try one for yourself and let me know if you do a delicious mixture I need to know about ❥
Although we’re mostly paleo, we definitely have our little treats here and there – Some are still healthy! This time.. We’re doing Chocolate Protein Bites! Lately I’ve been really, really sluggish, exhausted, foggy brained, etc. and needed to create SOMETHING to help me!
So I’ve been skipping coffee in the mornings and having a multivitamin Purely Inspired Organic Greens smoothie instead to try and get as many vitamins and minerals in me as I can and it’s definitely already made a difference. And although Oats aren’t paleo they are beneficial as they absorb slowly in the body, giving you a longer boost of energy so I decided to start making some protein bites to assist in getting my energy levels back up!
They’re perfect as each batch makes around 12 (Depending on how large you make them!) – So they last for a few days, the kids love them for snacks, they’re perfect for on-the-go and for a MUCH needed energy pick-up.
I’m gonna share this recipe with you as it’s made a huge difference lately and they’re really, REALLY good.. And it’s perfect for the summertime as no-bake is great since it’s already SO hot outside!
I love this one as simple as this.. The banana and chocolate together are delicious!! I’m sure some of that powdered peanut butter would be delicious too if the craving strikes you.. (Maybe tastes like a Tag-A-Long?!)
I LOVE Purely Inspired products – If you have any questions or comments please let me know and I’d love to help answer!
