Need a little variety for breakfast (or any time of day)? As you know, I sometimes get in a food rut, especially in the mornings since I can’t have typical breakfast food (like eggs and yogurt) and I try to keep my baking and flour-based goodies to the weekends (pancakes, muffins, etc.). This keeps saves time in the morning during the week and keeps me from over-indulging in flour-based starches, but I get bored sometimes!
Enter the Berry Healthy Smoothie Bowl! I am late to the smoothie party, I guess. For some reason I have never really gotten into the habit of making smoothies, maybe because of the cleanup with a big blender and my mini blender didn’t work that great.
At Christmas my Mom got me a NutriBullet, and since then I have been making more smoothies. More smoothies = more veggies + fruits + fiber for this lady! Not to mention smoothies are healthy “fast food”.
In this smoothie bowl, I made sure I added plenty of protein. You can use 2-3 Tablespoons of your favorite vanilla protein powder (or even chocolate if you like). In mine I used 1 Tablespoon gelatin powder and 1 Tablespoon sacha inchi powder, and 1/2 Tablespoon lucuma powder (not a protein, but it added carbs and flavor). My smoothie bowl was quite thick. Depending on the protein powder you use, you can add water to get the consistency you like.
