Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie Bowl

I don’t know about you but when it comes to the morning I love to start things off with a bang and if you have seen my Instagram stories, you know that means a smoothie bowl! I love that a smoothie bowl tastes like my favorite frozen dessert while still offering you a nutrient dense and fun way to start off your day!

Now, I’m a morning person, so don’t limit yourself to just breakfast with these babes. I like to make the filling by adding fiber, healthy fats, protein and vegetables to make sure that I’m getting a meal that tastes like dessert, but also offers all the nutrients needed for a well-rounded meal!

This smoothie is a go when I am in the mood for something a little less sweet because of the raspberries and non-dairy yogurt. I also add in two optional ingredients, the first being flax to add in fiber. This is so that you can digest the smoothie easier, but you can either skip or use chia seeds instead. The second ingredient is gelatinized Maca root powder, I take this to help balance hormones and it also adds a caramel flavor that’s really good! You can find both of these products by clicking here !

Okay, so now you know all the details, let’s get on to the ingredients list!

Ingredients

• ½ cup frozen banana

• ½ cup frozen butternut squash

• 1/3rd cup frozen raspberries

• 1 cup non-dairy milk

• 1 tbsp. non-dairy yogurt

• 1 tsp. Gelatinized Maca powder

Pumpkin Pie Spice Smoothie

I don’t know about you guys, but since I live in Florida the term seasons isn’t used very often. We have hot, really hot, don’t go outside, and cold or otherwise known as seventy degrees.  This makes getting into the spirit of fall a little more difficult. You can imagine the dilemma of this New England gone South girl as I see my family and friend up north posting darling photos with their sweaters and fall foliage. 

Because of my dilemma, I have decided to crank up the AC, throw on a sweater and make a pumpkin spice treat that keeps you cool, while satisfying those cravings. Not to mention the benefits of pumpkin including potassium, fiber, and antioxidants! Another win for pumpkin is that it is easy to digest because of its high fiber, low starch, and low sugar content. I added pumpkin to my smoothies, while on the Candida cleanse as a substitute for bananas and it would help keep that creamy and rich texture that bananas provide!

SO without further Aude, here is my fall smoothie recipe!

Ingredients

·         4 frozen cubes of pumpkin

·         2 frozen cubes of coconut milk

·         2 frozen cubes of sweet potato

·         1/4th cup dairy free yogurt

·         3/4th cup milk

·         1 tsp pumpkin spice

·         1/4th tsp. Unrefined Stevia leaf powder or sweetener of choice

·         1 TBS Flax meal  

·         1 TBSP protein powder (Optional)  

Instructions

·         Place all the ingredients in a blender and you know the rest!

·         Oh and don’t forget to enjoy, if you forget about it there will be a melted pool of ingredients waiting for you when you come back. I know because I have been there and it’s not pretty…
