What are you and your children eating for breakfast? 🤔
What about a healthy smoothie bowl? 💁🏻♀️
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and sometimes it just doesn’t fit into our schedule the way it should. How we begin the day will determine how the rest of the day goes. It will determine if we feel energized or if we feel dragging with a lack of energy. What we put in our bellies is directly related to how we physically feel. So if you are a skip breakfast and grab the coffee mug morning person then this blog is totally for you.
We all need and crave energy. I know I do! Sometimes it is so easy to want to grab a quick bowl of cereal or even forget breakfast and just get through the morning on 1-2 cups of coffee for the energy needed to survive the day. I don’t want you to just survive through the day though; I want you to thrive through the day. I also don’t want you to go on the “crash and crave” roller coaster for the entire day. If you begin your morning with caffeinated coffee and sugar, you will crash, and you will be either too tired to make it through your responsibilities or you will be reaching for another cup of coffee to get through a few more hours.
Smoothies are another quick alternative to a fast breakfast that can help energize us throughout the entire day. When you toss in some greens, a little fruit, and a healthy liquid like coconut water you are bound to feel energetic and ready to take on the day. Starting the day with a smoothie also gives you well needed antioxidants which help protect our bodies from free radicals, and it is a great low glycemic start. Eating a low glycemic breakfast will help curb your sugar cravings for the entire day and it will also help with not crashing.
Next time you want a quick breakfast, try a delicious smoothie that will leave you feeling energized and motivated. A morning smoothie will provide your body with the nutrients it needs to produce natural energy and naturally boost your metabolism. So, what are you reaching for tomorrow morning? I know I will be pulling out my blender and getting ready for some long lasting energy.
Smoothies are very easy to prepare and look always delicious. You can make the smoothie bowl refreshing with some frozen fruits on hot days or you use them around room temperature when it’s colder outside. 😉
As a parent you don’t have so much time in the morning, so don’t worry! You just put all ingredients in the blender and blend it for a few seconds and serve the creamy smoothie in a bowl with some toppings. You could also give your child the option to add some toppings in a fun way.
It’s for sure pure enjoyment to have a colorful created smoothie bowl for breakfast. Your smoothie bowls will be a mood Booster with big nutritional benefits. 💚
Start with your child’s favorite taste and from there you can experiment a little bit from time to time.
There are no limitations of your or your child’s creativity in preparing your smoothie bowls. ☀️🍌🍌🍓🫐🥬🥥🥝
- almond milk
- bananas, fresh or frozen
- strawberries, I recommend fresh
- grounded almonds or oats, optional
- toppings – blueberries, gojis, dried fruits, hemp seeds, grounded almond, popped quinoa
I like to use a little bit of almond milk and 2 bananas so the smoothie will be a bit creamy. Then I usually add 150-200g of strawberries to get a great strawberry taste. If you want to add a natural protein source, I like grounded almonds, or oats – but you can use whatever you prefer or whatever is digestible for your body. Also keep in mind that adding a protein source will change the taste of your smoothie bowl.
Once you have your main ingredients in a blender, blend it until it’s smooth. Afterwards serve it in a bowl and add the toppings. you can choose the same one like I presented in the video, or be creative and use your own favorites.
