Green Smoothie Bowl
In the midst of winter, smoothies may not be your go-to but a bright and flavorful bowl is perfect for the winter blues. This refreshing green smoothie bowl recipe was shared with us by Jessa's Bowlz & Blendz. As Jessa says “it’s always smoothie season in my books!!”
Starting the day off right
Mornings can go by fast and we don’t often find ourselves with ample time for preparing a breakfast feast. That’s why this quick recipe is ideal for when you are short on time but still want to start the day with a nutritious meal. Banana and mango are filled with antioxidants and can help boost immunity. With spinach and cucumbers, you can get ahead on your servings of vegetables for the day. Plus, blending with Willa’s oat milk also packs in oat benefits. With more fiber, protein, and vitamins it is no wonder why at Willa’s we choose to use the whole grain oat in our milk!
One of the best things about smoothie recipes is that it’s extra easy to substitute ingredients to your preferences. Jessa suggests that you can replace frozen cucumbers with cauliflower or frozen fruit of your choice. The recipe includes added protein powder which makes this an ideal post-workout snack. You can also skip the protein powder and opt for other add-ins like maca or spirulina powder. Where you can really go crazy is with the toppings! Jessa topped hers with fresh berries, dried coconut, granola, bee pollen, and peanut butter. We also suggest sliced banana, almond butter, chia seeds, and a drizzle of agave syrup. Feel free to make this green smoothie bowl all your own!
