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!
