Satisfying Berry Good Smoothie Bowl | Healthy Saturday Brunch Series – Week 2/4
This is the 2nd post in my 4-part healthy brunch series. Check out last week’s Banana Blueberry Pancakes here, and stay tuned for 2 more new recipe releases on the next 2 Saturdays in January! Happy brunching!
Satisfying Berry Good Smoothie Bowl
If you’re anything like me when it comes to breakfast, I am usually ravenous in the morning. I can devour a glass full of a smoothie in seconds. They are just that easy to drink and, if I put a straw in it, forget it – it’s gone before I even started.
That’s why transferring your smoothie into a bowl and topping it with something crunchy can make all the difference. Not only will it slow you down, but it allows you to actually get full. I find that when I finish anything too fast, my body is still wanting more. You can add as many toppings as you like to fill you up – especially if you are having this for brunch. My rule of thumb is to always include protein, fat, and greens!
Serves 2 | Prep time: 5 min | Ready in 3 min | Enjoy right away!
What’s In It?
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup spring water
- 1 scoop Sun Warrior Plant Protein Powder or Julian Bakery Pegan Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder
- 1 scoop collagen
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1 cup frozen berries
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 tsp ground chia seeds
- 1 tsp coconut kefir or yogurt
- Small handful of fresh spinach or kale
How It’s Made!
Blend in a high-speed blender until smooth, creamy and thick (add less liquid if it’s too runny). Pour into your favourite colourful bowl and grab a spoon! Don’t forget to top as you wish with berries, seeds, shredded coconut, chia seeds, sliced tigernuts, bee pollen, and/or hemp hearts. This will add some extra crunch and texture to your bowl, making it even more enjoyable to chew and eat with a spoon.
