When I first started getting into the wonderful world of health and wellness about a year ago, I had never tried a smoothie bowl before. Seriously. Now, I can't imagine my life without these delicious treats! I love having a smoothie bowl with some protein in it as post-workout fuel, or with some maca in the morning for a power-packed breakfast. But my absolute favorite part of a smoothie bowl, of course, is the toppings. All. The. Toppings.
This is a recipe for a basic smoothie bowl that can be dressed up or down, depending on what you're craving! I used cauliflower (steamed first to make it easier to digest) for creaminess, and added spinach for extra nutrients. You can't taste the spinach, but don't you just feel healthier when your smoothie bowl is green?
This recipe is very simple, so feel free to add whatever nut butters, protein powders, or adaptogens you want! For this smoothie bowl, I added my favorite collagen peptides from Vital Proteins, for gut health and that hair, skin, & nails boost.
Disclaimer: Despite the cup of strawberries, this smoothie bowl is not super sweet. So if you need a little more sweetness in your bowl, you can blend in a date or add some coconut nectar (or choose sweet toppings!)
LEAN GREEN SMOOTHIE BOWL
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. Top with cacao nibs, coconut flakes, and goji berries (or whatever toppings feel right!).
That's it! Super simple, light, and yummy. Try it out, and let me know what you think!
