Coming up with healthy and delicious breakfast ideas can be tough. Especially when you need them to be fast and easy. In our house, the morning rush is the most hectic part of the day. Trying to get six people ready and out the door feels nearly impossible most days – and that’s before adding in the chaos of breakfast. So during the week, it’s critical that our breakfast recipes are fast and easy.
That’s why I’m so excited to share my my friend Jasmin’s Smoothie Bowl recipe. Jasmin is a mom and fellow blogger over at Lemons for Days . Today I’m sharing with you her Smoothie Bowl recipe. Doesn’t it look like happiness in a bowl? It’s almost too pretty to eat….almost.
Here’s Jasmin to tell you a little more about it….
Smoothies are a feel-good food. Cold, sweet and refreshing, they’re so quick and easy to put together. As much as I love a super delicious smoothie though, I find myself getting hungry soon after, especially if I’ve worked out that day. The solution? Smoothie Bowls. I’m in my happy place when eating a smoothie bowl. It reminds me of hot summer days when, in reality, it’s snowing outside, I’m wearing 2 pairs of socks and willing winter to go away. This gluten free vegan smoothie bowl is the perfect pick -me-up in the morning, especially if you’re not a morning person 😉
Smoothies aren’t for everybody
I’ve head a lot of people saying that as much as they love smoothies, they need to chew their food in order to be satisfied. I totally get it. So just add a little more substance and nutrition to your smoothie so that you stay full longer and feel super satisfied.
- 2 cups frozen blueberries
- ¾ cup dairy-free milk (almond or coconut)
- 1 ripe banana
- optional toppings
- sliced bananas
- coconut flakes
- pumpkin seeds
- sunflower seeds
- hemp hearts
- chia seeds
- place frozen blueberries, milk, and banana into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth (you'll want it to be thicker than a normal smoothie so that the toppings stay on top and don't sink in)
- sprinkle toppings on & dig in! Honestly couldn't get any easier right?
- * I use a Vitamix, but depending on the power of you blender, you may need to play around with the ratio
All the goodness
Be creative and generous with your toppings. Here are some topping ideas:
raw cacao nibs
