Superfood Smoothie Bowl Recipe

This week I was sick at home for 4 days and I was really craving a refreshing, cool smoothie bowl. A mix of a month full of hard (heart) work and some family issues really got me down. I probably could have gone back to work on Thursday, but I felt it was really important for me to be sure that I was feeling 100% so I could give 100%, and not get my co-workers sick too, of course!

I whipped up this delicious smoothie bowl recipe basically without any method. I just wanted something packed with protein, full of superfoods and adaptogens and something cool because the weather is so freaking hot! I often have post-workout protein smoothie bowls to avoid just chugging down a smoothie, but most of the time I drink smoothies for convenience. This time, I had nothing but time. And, in honor of #WatermelonDay today, I threw in some fresh watermelon as well. Mmmmm….good!

I absolutely love smoothies! I have at least 2 every single day because they are quick, convenient and I am able to get a large amount of protein without having to eat a giant meal. I am on-the-go a lot and healthy nutrition is a huge priority to me, so smoothies are THE answer. I often whip up protein smoothie recipes on the fly with whatever fruits and veggies I have in the house. New taste and new experience every time.

32 g protein, 23 g fat, 49 g carbs, 14 g fiber (can I get an, Amen!?)
