Spring has been unusually cold, and the chilly temps have us craving something sweet and nurturing. This thick, creamy, chocolatey smoothie bowl really hits the spot (without the guilt).
Like other smoothie bowl recipes, this requires a little bit of prep the night before to create a really thick base in the morning; from there, it’s as simple as making a standard (yet extra delicious) smoothie.
Seems like breakfast smoothie are all the rage these days, so it got me thinking, why not come up with a thick luscious creamy and, of course, healthy recipe that would make the perfect breakfast in bed treat to serve someone you love (or yourself).
The smoothie bowl requires a little bit of prep the night before so that you have a really thick base to start with in the morning; otherwise, it’s as simple as making a regular smoothie.
The weather has finally begun to warm up and all around us nature is waking up in full glory after its winter slumber. It’s the prettiest time of the year, however, if you are an allergy sufferer, it can also be a cruel time of year. So load up on foods rich in Quercetin, a mild natural antihistamine found in many foods including apples, blueberries and kale. To get the full impact, combine them in a fresh, delicious green smoothie.
How I love Spring, the colors… the atmosphere, sigh! These gorgeous pink, purple and green flowers I had inspired me to create some killer toasts with the very same colors. The taste is so refreshing and it’s SO easy to put together. Whether you just want to treat yourself to a beautiful breakfast or snack… or you’re entertaining for the Queen of England, I’ve got you covered with these babies. All you need are: Peas, lemon and tahini to make the base, I realize not everyone has lavender and I was one of those people up until like a month ago, but ever since I spent the $10 on Amazon to get a bag of it, I think my culinary street cred went up at least 20 points. Just sayin’ — buy yourself some, it’s just fancy as frick. And radishes?! They’re everywhere right now. I was lucky enough to find these tiny French ones, but good ol’ regular radishes will do just fine. The toast is up to you, whatever you normally use. And voila… you have yourself a gorgeous appetizer or dish you can feel proud of.
For those allergic or sensitive to nuts–or if you just want to try something new–here’s a great smoothie recipe for you to give a morning boost.
Sunflower seed butter is high in healthy fats, thyroid supportive selenium, and trace minerals like magnesium that support all of the bodies functions. It’s a great alternative to nut butters and can be found in health food stores – be sure to read the label and make sure you get one that is unsweetened. Combine that with our new upgraded Cleanse Shake, antioxidant packed blueberries and phytonutrient rich spinach and you’ve got yourself a super nutritious breakfast or snack!
The days are finally getting longer and the sun is definitely starting to have some warmth to it. If you look closely, daffodils are slowly starting to poke through the ground. Spring is on it’s way–and what better way to celebrate the new season than with a new smoothie recipe.
St Patrick’s day is around the corner–the day of all things green and often regrettable indulgences! Replace them with our favorite Be Well Greeno Mojito mocktail smoothie and feel good all day.
Turmeric, the ancient spice from Southern Asia that gives curries their rich golden color, seems to suddenly be the rage. And it’s not surprising since it is loaded with so many benefits. In particular, it helps fight inflammation naturally–and has antiseptic, anti-fungal, anti-viral , anti-bacterial and anti-tumor properties. Plus it’s great for brain and heart health. Try it in this smoothie recipe!
Did you know that the body is constantly regenerating itself? It’s true! Your cells are constantly dying off while new ones are being created. This regeneration happens at different rates throughout the body and can actually be affected (both positively or negatively) by the food that we eat. It’s super important to prevent aging from the inside even before you think about the outside options of beauty products galore.
