Summer Smoothie Bowls – 3 Ways

Here are three variations of the smoothie bowl to get your day started: Rise & Shine (yellow), Beet ‘n’ Berry (red) and Green Light (green).  I had a lot of fun working on creating these recipes and videos. I really hope you enjoy them.

One of the things that I really like about these smoothie bowl is that you can make them in advance and freeze them. Then, when you’re ready to eat, simply transfer your smoothie bowl to the fridge to thaw for a bit and then enjoy.

I wanted these bowls to not only be beautiful but also satiating so I included oats and protein powder for some additional fiber and protein. These recipes can be vegan/vegetarian if you use plant-based protein powders and milk.

I used a low-carb protein powder and soy milk. If you do not have protein powder consider using yogurt in its place.
