PINEAPPLE MANGO MACA SMOOTHIE BOWL



Hello everyone! I love starting my day with a nutrient dense smoothie. It so much fun to experiment with different flavor combinations and textures. Having your smoothie in a bowl is a great opportunity to get even more healthy ingredients into your blend. 

This smoothie bowl has a nice contrast of flavors. The pineapple and mango give it a tropical vibe with toasted, sweet & sour toppings and a slightly nutty flavor from the Maca.


MACA is an immune boosting superfood that is very nutrient dense. It's high in vitamins and minerals, enzymes, protein, essential fatty acids and B vitamins...including B12 which is especially beneficial for vegans. Maca may also help to bring balance to hormones for those suffering from PMS, hormonal skin issues or menopause.

I topped this smoothie bowl with toasted coconut chips, shredded unsweetened coconut, dried sour cherries and kiwi slices.

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.

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.

CHOCOLATE CHERRY NICE CREAM

Hello everyone! Chocolate and cherries are one of my favorite combinations. They compliment each other beautifully! This chocolate cherry nice cream is luscious, decadent, extremely satisfying and very easy to make. It's a perfect "guilty free" dessert or snack option.
CHERRIES contain powerful antioxidant properties. They are high in fiber and vitamin C. They also have anti-inflammatory properties.
RAW CACAO is considered a superfood that is high in magnesium, zinc, calcium, sulfur, copper, iron, potassium and manganese. It has powerful antioxidant properties and contains some B vitamins, protein and fiber.
