Berry Banana Smoothie Bowl

Hello! In my world, there are two types of breakfasts; breakfasts that I make on weekdays, and breakfasts that I make on weekends. Weekday breakfasts normally consist of greek yogurt with banana and peanut butter, but on weekends I like to shake it up a bit, since I have more time. This Berry Banana Smoothie Bowl is sweet and refreshing, and adding spinach gives you a boost of vitamins to start your day. The recipe says that it makes one to two servings, but I don’t think that you’ll want to share after tasting it. I love smoothie bowls because the toppings are totally customizable, so go crazy! I hope this recipe starts your weekends off right!

Greek Yogurt Smoothie Bowls

‘Sup guys! I’m super excited to post my first healthy recipe! A year ago I went to California, and my favourite thing to eat for breakfast there were açai bowls. They’re basically made up of granola and fruit topped with an açai smoothie, and they’re delicious! Unfortunately, you can’t buy açai berries here, and shipping them in is really expensive. So I came up with these greek yogurt smoothie bowls, which might be even better because you can make your smoothie with whatever you want! And, if you make a big batch of smoothie on the weekend, you’ll have ready-to-go breakfasts all week long! Here is the recipe for this easy, healthy and delicious breakfast.

 

The first step is to make your smoothie. I have a Vitamix at home, but you can use any blender. What’s great about this recipe is that you can customize your smoothie, but there are some things that you should definitely put in there. Start with a veggie, and I know what you’re thinking, veggies for breakfast!!?? What is this? But trust me, once you combine them with everything sweet going into the mix, you won’t even taste them. Spinach, carrots and avocados are great for smoothies. You can even buy frozen avocado at Costco, so you always have some on hand.

Next, throw in some fruit. I like bananas, berries and pineapple, but you can really add whatever fruits you like. Again, you can buy tons of different kinds of frozen fruits at Costco. Once you have a few types of fruits and veggies picked out, you can put in some protein or other add ins, like peanut butter, nuts and seeds, all that good stuff. For my smoothie, I used  spinach, avocado, banana, pineapple, and hemp seeds, which you can also buy at Costco.

Hemp seeds are a great source of healthy fats and protein and I often use them in my lunch salads instead of meat. Make sure to add a few cups of water to your blender so your smoothie isn’t too thick, and you’re off to the races. Blend all of your ingredients until smooth.

When you’re done with your smoothie, it’s yogurt time! I always use plain greek yogurt, because it’s low in sugar and high in protein. Try and stay away from fruit flavoured yogurt because it’s high in added sugar. Scoop about 1/4 to 3/4 cups of yogurt into a bowl, it depends how hungry you are! Pour a proportionate amount of smoothie over one half of the yogurt in the bowl. Again, you can mix up the ratios of yogurt to smoothie depending on how you like it. On the side of the yogurt that isn’t covered by the smoothie, sprinkle fruit, granola, nuts, more hemp seeds, really anything you want! I decided to top mine with some almonds.

And there you have it! Greek yogurt smoothie bowls!

I hope you like this recipe! Have some fun with the different combinations of fruit in the smoothie and toppings on the finished product. Making this the night before you need it and popping it in the fridge will give you a quick and delicious start to your morning! Leave some comments down below if you tried it out!

.P.S- Don’t forget to come back next week, when I’ll be posting a recipe for delicious homemade granola.
