Smoothies are a refreshing drink that are enjoyable year-round, but I especially love smoothies that are homemade. When you make a smoothie from scratch you are able to control the quality of the ingredients you use and ensure you are fueling your body with more healthy ingredients than excess ingredients like those you may find at a smoothie chain. By blending together more nutrient-dense food, you can easily avoid excess sugar and fat.
This smoothie bowl I created for breakfast has lots of protein, fiber, and natural sugars, which are easier for your body to digest. I also love the idea of a smoothie bowl because you can top it off with whole fruits (instead of blending them up), as well as healthy grains and seeds like granola and chia seeds I topped it off with. Another great moderation you can make to any smoothie recipe is to add in some greens such as spinach or kale. I promise you, the flavor of the fruit can mask the flavor of the greens.
For the Smoothie:
Add the yogurt, almond butter, milk, and strawberries to a blender and blend until smooth. Be sure to work quickly so the smoothie stays cold! Pour the smoothie into a bowl, and top it off.
