Vol. 1: The Smoothie Bowl Diaries

A great way to skip a bowl of ice cream, change up the oatmeal or yogurt routine or get funky with you boring smoothie… check this out. I just recently posted on my Instagram and the SoulCycle blog, a recipe of mine that was kind-of an accident. I love these bowls because you get the carbohydrates, fiber, protein and goodness…. in less than 10 minutes.

Today, I am sharing with you my [first] take on a homemade “Smoothie Bowl!”

Serves 2!

  • 8oz almond milk (base, add more to blend smoothie)
  • 2 cups frozen fruit (this was dark cherries, pineapple, mango, strawberries and papaya - sliced into pieces and frozen)
  • 2 sliced frozen bananas
  • 1 scoop protein powder (optional, great for post soul) •1 tbsp chia seeds
  • As many Toppings as you like: coconut,cacao nibs, chocolate chips, granola, fruit, nuts, chia seeds, hemp seeds... 

— Other ideas… acai berries or packs (frozen aisle), avocado (creamy n dreamy), add spinach/ kale, and flaxseed meal)

Directions:

  1. Start by blending almond milk, and larger pieces of frozen fruit.
  2. Once smooth, add the rest of the fruit. This is when you might need to add more almond milk to keep the smoothie moving.
  3. Add your choice of protein. I use Sunwarrior protein but you can use what you like or non-fat greek yogurt. Keep in mind yogurt added to the bitterness.
  4. Try it! Is it sweet enough? Do you want to add more leafy greens?
  5. Bowl into 2 separate bowls.
  6. Add toppings.
  7. Take a hot-ass picture and Instagram it tagging me in it!

Great meals for recovery post workout! This takes your smoothie to the next level and creativity flowing, and even better… it’s like having an ice-cream sundae. This is my go to meal between two classes before noon.

For those of you who do not know me, my name is Bea, a lifestyle blogger currently living in San Francisco. But to be clear, I am a New Yorker. ;) I am obsessed with living a healthy lifestyle through working out, eating well and living a purpose-driven life. The crazy part? I wasn’t always this way and it took me many years to get as focused as I am now which is why I love to share all the details of my “Get Fit, Get Fancy lifestyle” with you as it is still and will always be, a journey for me. In addition to living a healthy lifestyle through fitness and healthy eating habits (and indulgences), I strongly believe that being “healthy” included WHO you surround yourself with, WHERE you are and WHAT makes you shine bright each day.
