Recipes, Smoothies

The Go-To Smoothie.

WARNING: You might become addicted once trying this smoothie.

Literally I have this smoothie all the time. Almost every morning. The best part? It NEVER gets old.

I have always been a smoothie maker! It definitely runs in the family. Ever since my dad got his first Vitamix, my family has been hooked on smoothies. It really opened a whole new chapter of nutrition for our family. My papa & I became obsessed with creating the perfect smoothie! After many years of experimenting- I discovered my all time favorite. In the near future, I will be posting some of my dad’s delicious recipes as well!

So, I loved this smoothie so much I decided to make a video about it.

Coconut Açaí  Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients: 

1 apple

1 banana

1/2 cup plant milk (Almond Coconut Milk is my preference. Click here for my favorite brand. You can find it at any Smith’s or Health Food Store and if you are lucky, you maybe will find it at WalMart!)

small handful of blueberries

1 scoop vega plant protein powder. (Click here for online order! You can also find this at your local health food grocery store. They carry it at smiths! For sure Sprouts. I promise it is worth every penny!)

1 scoop Açaí  powder (My favorite brand is Sambazon. But you can really use any acai powder!)

1 cup ice

Topping Options: Coconut flakes, banana chips, granola, or my personal favorite: puffed rice (rice krispies.) 

Directions: 

Pour milk into blender. Chop apple & banana and blend at low speed. Add your vanilla & acai. Add blueberries. Increase the velocity of your blender, and gradually add in your ice. (This will prevent your smoothie from exploding all over the place in your little blender!)

Poor into your bowl and add your toppings!

Thanks for nourishing with me! (Feel free to leave comments below!)

Love,
