My Go-To Smoothie Bowl
Truth is, I have a smoothie bowl addiction. This is my go-to bowl, and my favorite way to start the day because you can pack so many nutrient dense ingredients into your first meal of the day. You’ve got healthy fats, two servings of vegetables, and one and a half servings of fruit in this creamy bowl! If you’re more of a smoothie person, just add more milk…that also makes it easier to transport if you need to blend and run.
I usually have these ingredients on hand, whereas my pumpkin pie, blueberry mint, and mango banana smoothie bowls are my way of spicing up breakfast time! Feel free to make your own adjustments, skipping or decreasing the powders, “superfoods,” or veggies if you’re new to experimenting with veggies in your smoothies.
I want to know how you like my go-to bowl!…Lara@thewellfedguide.com or @TheWellFedGuide on Instagram.
