Smoothie bowls take things to the next level. Instead of just sipping your creation from a cup, pour it into a bowl, top with additional goodies and dig in with a spoon! A smoothie that has something to chew on is literally more satiating. Optional toppings include unsweetened coconut flakes/chips, unsweetened cacao nibs, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax or chia seeds, raw nuts (cashews!), banana or plantain chips, or even pre-cooked sweet potato chunks for added healthy carbs.

This smoothie is incredibly thick and creamy and provides extra quality carbs for a post-workout treat. It’s pure heaven in a bowl… From one athlete needing nourishment for the body, to another (YOU!), I hope you enjoy!
