If you haven’t tried a smoothie bowl yet, what are you waiting for? Just like smoothies & shakes, smoothie bowls allow you to toss together a bunch of healthy ingredients, blend & enjoy. But, with a smoothie bowl, you can add toppings, and eat it with a spoon, which makes it oh-so-enjoyable! In this recipe, we use Vitamin Water XXX açaí-blueberry-pomegranate – it’s delicious and provides carbs, vitamins & electrolytes that are needed post-exercise. Then, we add in protein, more carbs & whatever toppings you’d like to make a well-balanced smoothie bowl.
1 cup frozen berries
1 container (5.3 oz) or 2/3 cup vanilla greek yogurt
1 frozen banana
1 tbsp nut butter
1/2-3/4 cup Vitamin Water XXX açaí-blueberry-pomegranate
Optional toppings: chia seeds, sliced fruit, granola, nuts, extra nut butter
Blend together. Adjust the amount of Vitamin Water for desired consistency.
