STRAWBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE BOWL


Smoothie bowls have quickly become a morning staple for me! They are such a great way to get a variety of nutrients in one simple blend. I especially love how quick and effortless they are...and filling!

I've been finding some really nice, beautifully ripe strawberries at the grocery store lately so I really wanted to use them in a smoothie bowl. I topped this luscious pink blend with some sliced kiwi, shredded unsweetened coconut, chia seeds and cacao nibs for a little crunch.



CACAO NIBS are the most natural form of chocolate. They are crunchy and have a very slight bitter flavor and also taste a bit nutty. You can add them to smoothies, oatmeal/cereal or just snack on them alone or in a trail mix. CACAO NIBS are high in antioxidants, flavonoids, magnesium, fiber (1 oz. contains approx. 9 grams of fiber) and potassium.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 frozen sliced banana
1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries or frozen
1 tbsp. maple syrup (optional)
1 tbsp. almond butter or raw cashews (optional)

1. Add all ingredients to a blender & blend for a few minutes until smooth.

TOPPING SUGGESTIONS:

-hemp seeds
-dried fruit
-frozen or fresh fruit
-nuts/seeds

Decorate with your favorite toppings or eat "as is" in a bowl or glass. Enjoy!

Thanks for reading!

Hello everyone! Hope you are well! Today I'm excited to share with you my favorite natural make up line that I've been using for a couple of months now. Make up was the first thing that I changed out when I decided to take a more natural approach to beauty. As much as I love it I always felt like my skin was suffocating and becoming more and more congested every time I applied it. So I wanted to find something that contained natural ingredients, felt lightweight on my skin and delivered results. I found all of those things with RMS BEAUTY!
So let's take a closer look at this beautiful brand!

SPIRULINA CHIA SEED PUDDING

Chia seeds are a staple in my kitchen. I throw them on salads, oatmeal, in smoothies and make a super simple and delicious pudding with them. Chia pudding is such a versatile dish. You can eat it with fruit, nuts, seeds, top it with granola, coconut yogurt or layer it "parfait style" with berries or fruit purees just to name a few of it's endless possibilities.

For this recipe I topped it with a chia, hemp and buckwheat cereal, some fresh berries and added some Spirulina powder to the basic chia pudding recipe to get this beautiful turquoise color.
