Smoothie Bowl

So, I love my smoothies and I love my acai bowls and I really love make ahead meals that are healthy! This is basically a smoothie made into individual servings and frozen till you are ready to eat, just like the acai. Or make your smoothie and pour it over peanut butter and granola. And eat immediately!

There is one thing you will definitely need before you get started on your smoothie making skills. You have to have a good quality blender. I LOVE my NINJA! I have the old model and love it.

Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of spinach or kale or both(I use spinach)
  • 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds(Or Flax seeds or both)
  • 2 Bananas(I keep plenty in the freezer cut in half so when I need them I have them. Make sure you peel them first.)
  • 2 cups of mixed berries(I get the big bag of triple berry blend at BJ’s. You can use whatever variety you like. There’s tropical blend or just strawberries. Sometimes I put the fruit that is gonna go bad in a day or two in the freezer and use that.)
  • 1 cup – 2 cups of almond milk(I can’t live without the Califia Toasted Coconut. It’s really good!)

Directions

  1. Place all the ingredients in your blender and blend with as much almond milk as needed to get it to the consistency you like.
  2. This should make enough to prepare 4 plastic containers (2-cup containers filled halfway).
  3. Cover and store in the freezer so they will be ready to go. We grab these for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dessert!

Top with peanut butter, granola and your favorite fruit.

Enjoy!

Acai Bowl

It is a new year and we all are trying to shed some pounds from enjoying sweet treats like Aunt June’s Cream Cheese Cookies. These Acai bowls are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dessert! They are filling, refreshing and healthy!

I tried it at a new Acai Bar that opened up near my house and copied what they did. The only difference is their acai is more frozen like ice cream. If you like your acai frozen you can put the acai, frozen banana, chia seeds and almond milk in your blender and freeze until ready to eat. Otherwise follow the recipe below to enjoy right away.

Acai Bowl

Ingredients

  • about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (you can use almond butter, soy butter or whatever you prefer)
  • 1/4 of a cup of your favorite granola (I try and buy one that is lower in sugar and on the healthier side. Some can be loaded with junk)
  • 1 packet of frozen unsweetened acai (found in the freezer section at any grocery store)
  • 1/2 of a frozen banana (I keep bananas that are a little too ripe in the freezer in a storage bag peeled and cut in half for smoothies)
  • 1 teaspoon of Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk or any milk you prefer (I use Califia Farms coconut almond milk. There is no sugar and it is healthy and delicious)
  • 1/2 of a banana, sliced
  • Fresh berries for the top of your bowl

Directions

  1. Spread a layer of the peanut butter at the bottom of your bowl.
  2. Sprinkle granola on top of peanut butter (The best part is the peanut butter and granola at the bottom!)
  3. Put the acai, frozen banana, chia seeds and almond milk in your blender.
  4. Blend until combined.
  5. Pour the acai mixture over the granola in your bowl.
  6. Top with sliced banana and fresh berries of your choice.

Enjoy!

Tropical Delight

My 11 year-old Matthew is picky, but also enjoys healthy food. He loves smoothies, but they have to be made his way! He came to me one day with his recipe he calls Tropical Delight. He wrote it all up and told me to put it on my blog. So we whipped it up in the blender to see how it was. It was delicious! We served it with a spoon to get all the crunchy granola in each bite.

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup of frozen fruit(We used a combination of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries)
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • About a 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of honey(optional)
  • Your favorite granola(We used a combination of two)

Directions

Blend all ingredients except granola in the blender.  Adjust the almond milk to make it the consistency you prefer.  Pour into your glass and top with granola.  Serve with a spoon and enjoy!
