6 Smoothie/Bowl Recipes

Smoothies are such a great way to get your required calories and nutrients in a easy and efficient way. Plus, it’s this Florida girl’s way to cool off after a workout. I have created 6 smoothie recipes, and I will be rotating them throughout the summer season. A few tips to take your smoothies/bowls to the next level:

  1. Focus on the fiber- fiber is necessary for digestion, but when we blend up our foods we lose a lot of their natural fiber. Adding things like chia, flax meal, and hemp seeds will help keep that fiber content high.
  2. Protein Powder- I like to add some vegan protein powder to my smoothies and bowls to help help to satiate my body, encourage muscle recovery, improve cell reproduction, and manage appetite.
  3. Include Healthy Fats- coconut oil, almond butter, avocado or flax seed products are great options. This will help stabilize blood sugar levels, keep you fuller for longer, and naturally nourishes your hair, skin, and nails : ]
  4.  Play with texture- I like to make my smoothies into bowls in order to make them more like a meal. I top em off with nuts, granola, berries, nut butters, etc.

** Feel free to sub frozen zucchini, cauliflower, or avocado instead of banana to keep that same creamy texture, but less sugar and carbs**
