Three Smoothie Bowls to Make This Week

If your week has been anything like mine, then this post is for you. I have seriously been struggling to eat fruits and veggies! My meals have ended up being carb heavy and although they taste good, I can tell by my energy levels that I need to pack dome more fruits and veggies in. 
Smoothies are one of my favorite things and even though they are great in a glass, having them at mealtime sometimes demands more that the sweet concoction you sip through a straw. Thats what is so great about smoothie bowls! They are everything your favorite smoothie is plus extra toppings that not only give you something to much on but also pack in more nutrients and flavor.

Smoothie Bowl Basics:

Protein - two heaping spoonfuls - this can come from yogurt, nut butter, silken tofu, or even chia seeds
Liquid - depending on whether you are using fresh or frozen fruit 1/4 to 1/3 cup ususally - milk, juice (veggie juices are perfect for getting in more nutrients), and coconut water are my favorites
Fruit - heaping handful of your favorites (fresh or frozen work but if using frozen you will need more liquid usually.
Greens - Spinach and romaine lettuce are easy to use but kale and swiss chard work great too
Toppings - Nuts, seeds, granola, cereal, dark chocolate chips, fresh fruit, and shredded coconut are all fun to add but play around and experiment!
