For Christmas 2015, “Santa” bought Matt and I a nutribullet. I have become slightly obsessed with smothie bowls because of it. They are delicious, you can add all kinds of toppings, it’s healthy and yummy! Allergy season has kicked in and I add a little local honey (which is supposed to help). Here’s the recipe, all ingredients are organic:
1 banana (can be frozen)
1 small handful of frozen strawberries
3/4 c unsweetened coconut milk
1 large handful spinach
1/2 handful kale
1 tbsp honey
Throw ingredients in your nutribullet (or blender will work) and blend away. Pour in your bowl and add whatever toppings you like! I add about 2 teaspoons of the super seed and ancient grain blend from Trader Joe’s (it has sprouted buckwheat, flax seed, quinoa, hemp, chia and amaranth), shredded coconut, almonds, and fresh berries. Enjoy!
I’m so excited about this recipe! Not only is it super healthy, but I got to use my new ramekins I got at World Market the other day! This meal is such a great way to start the day. You get a handful of fresh veggies along with some protein to keep you full. The egg yolk also remains nice and runny after baking which is my favorite part 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
