Since I have a big batch of granola to make good use of, I have been making smoothies this week. I post way more on Instagram than I do here, so if you like my pics and posts, I recommend you to follow me on IG to get a daily update and nutritional tip 😀
A smoothie bowl is one of those things that look awesome, tastes great and it is very easy to put together. It is also nutritious and quite low in fat (depending how you make it of course) and high in protein.
I have made these three options but there are endless possibilities that we will get to explore in other posts!
- Acai Bowl: really the amount of acai is one tsp. The rest is made of frozen blueberries, strawberry protein powder and coconut milk. It is vegan (if pea protein is used) and I squeeze half a lemon in it too in order to bring out the flavour. The toppings are fig and dried rose buds.
- Strawberry Bowl: the protein here comes from the fat free greek yogurt. Mix 150gr of it with a cup of frozen strawberries, half a lemon again and a pinch of sweetener (i have used liquid sucralose) I find that liquid sweeteners work better for really cold mixtures. Blend in the food processor until smooth, with a dash of coconut milk. For the toppings, fresh blueberries, home made granola and raspberry sauce (for this I mix 2 cups of raspberries with one cup of water, lemon and sweetener and boil until smooth, I removed the peeps with a shifter)
- Matcha Vanilla Protein Bowl. Mix 1 scoop of vanilla protein with one tsp of matcha green tea and blend. Top with blueberries and kiwi fruit and some more granola.
Have a happy weekend!
