Peach Strawberry Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are seriously trendy right now, but way too expensive to buy out! Today I made a Peach Strawberry one and decorated it with some of my favorite toppings like shredded coconut, kiwi, chia seeds, and almond slivers. The hardest part about making this is that it looks so pretty you almost don’t want to take that first bite!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen peaches
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

Instructions
  1. In a blender, mix together the frozen strawberries, peaches, banana, almond milk and flaxseed (add more milk or ice if needed to get your desired consistency, however smoothie bowls are typically thicker like ice cream)
  2. Pour into a bowl, and top with your favorite add-ons!

Mango Pineapple Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are like eating ice cream for breakfast, except contain only the best ingredients and vitamins your body craves to keep you feeling young and looking beautiful. Today I chose Mango – Pineapple. Mangoes provide you with Vit A, Vit. B6, Vit. C, Vit. E, beta-carotene, and potassium. While Pineapples contain Vit. C and bromelain, an enzyme with anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties that is known to help digest food.

Toppings

  • 1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup walnuts

Kiwi Pineapple Smoothie

Kiwi Pineapple Smoothie (2 Servings) 

I saw a sale on some kiwis so I brought a bunch of them home to eat! I almost forgot just how delicious they are & super nutritious. Kiwis have more vitamin C than oranges, along with Vitamins K, E, Potassium, Fiber, copper, manganese & folate. They give you the antioxidants your body craves & will help keep you looking younger and feeling healthier! So I decided to make a tasty Kiwi Pineapple Smoothie and pair it with a hardboiled organic egg for breakfast 🙂
