DIY Smoothie Bowl

Updated: May 14, 2020

Anyone else obsessed with looking at smoothie bowl pictures online? Just me?




I'm not super adventurous when it comes to trying new recipes that look difficult. I'm not sure why but smoothie bowls intimidated me. I am all about simple recipes. If I skim a recipe and it needs 12+ items I check out really quick. Most of the DIY recipes on my blog currently consistent of less than five ingredients.


I got really excited and inspired when I watched my dear friend Erin make her own smoothie bowl in less than three minutes.


I can do THAT.


Before I share the recipe, I'm about to talk about Ningxia Red. If you're not a current Young Living member than you might be super confused.





Ningxia Red is a drinkable supplement that is made up of wolfberries or gogi berries. I've been drinking about 2 oz of Ningxia Red every day for 3+ months to help with that dreaded afternoon slump (Ningxia is infused with several B vitamins). I cut back significantly from drinking coffee during pregnancy, especially during my first trimester when I thought coffee tasted like dirt. I started making delicious Momma Mocktails with Ningxia Red in the afternoons instead of reaching for that second cup of coffee. Adding gogi berries into your life is just a good idea!


Here's how I made my DIY smoothie bowl:


Step 1: Mix 2-4 oz of Ningxia Red with 2 cups of organic spinach.




Step 2: Blend unsweetened fruit until desired consistency.


I had a bag of frozen mixed fruit from HyVee that was perfect for this recipe: cherries, raspberries, blueberries, etc.


Step 3: Add toppings of choice.


Once I had the smoothie texture exactly how I liked it, then I poured the smoothie base into a bowl and picked out my toppings.





Some good options included:

~peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter

~dark chocolate (I love Lily's dark chocolate)

~pecans, pistachios, walnuts

~bananas, blueberries, strawberries, etc


After you add your toppings of choice you are officially read to sit down and enjoy your smoothie bowl!

XOXO,
