I love a good smoothie. But you know what I love more? ICE CREAM!
I’ve been playing around with a few healthier options now that I’m dairy free. After a big bowl of Blue Bell (the ice cream of the South) my stomach would toss and turn. It tastes SOOOO good but makes me feel SOOOO bad! What gives?!
It’s the freaking dairy. Here’s the thing… I don’t miss it! Not one bit. I gave up Blue Bell and so can you. I know it sounds scary but I’ve got a great smoothie bowl recipe that is DELICIOUS. It’s NICE CREAM! No cruelty added.
You can make your smoothie bowl thick and creamy just like the real stuff. Use less almond milk and add more frozen banana/ice for a thicker consistency. The possibilities are truly endless.
As you can see, I typically stick with the same toppings! YUM!
This is my go to recipe when I have a sweet tooth. I’m currently doing a modified vegan version of the Whole 30 and this meal is compliant!
1 frozen banana
2 cups of ice
1 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons of peanut or almond butter
2-3 cups of spinach*
1 teaspoon spirulina*
1 scoop of chocolate vegan Shakeology*
1/2 scoop of protein powder*
1 cup of blackberries (or whatever fruit you choose!)
1 tablespoon chia seeds*
1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds*
1 tablespoon shredded coconut*
1 tablespoon hemp seeds*
Blend together in a high powered blender almond milk, spinach, and spirulina. Add in Shakeology, protein powder, and almond butter. Blend. Finally add in ice and frozen banana and blend until smooth.
Pour mixture into a big bowl then add toppings of choice! My favorites are listed above.
Have some fun with your food. Make a fun design, snap a pic, and share your yumminess with ME!
Your smoothie bowl will be a VIBRANT green color if you add more spinach. Don’t worry, though, you cannot taste it! So pack in the greens and enjoy!
