Smoothie Bowl Bar ~ Great idea for kids of all ages

I love Instagram! I love looking at all the wonderfully creative ideas everyone is sharing about Raw, Vegan and Vegetarian cuisine. It is so inspiring on my journey of eating more healthier each and every day.

I enjoy making smoothie bowls for breakfast and for dessert. It is supper easy. All you do is make your favorite smoothie mix. I like adding a vegan protein powder to my smoothie mix. My favorite is Vega One, their smoothie mixes are packed with vegan protein, greens and so much nutrition. I add this to my smoothie, which usually consist of some type of fruit.

The picture below is my Mango Smoothie bowl.

1 1/2 cup frozen mangos chunks

1 to 1 1/2 cup non ~ dairy milk

1 scoop Vanilla Flavor Vega One smoothie drink mix.

cut fruit, goji berries and coconut flakes.

You can add whatever you like. If you want to have fun with this make a nice Smoothie Bar.  All you have to do do is make a base of your favorite flavored smoothie.  Keep it simple, the toppings will give you all the different flavors. You can chop up kiwi, bananas, mangos, apples, add cacao bits, coconut flakes, dried fruits and your favorite nuts and seeds. Add these to individual bowls. Give each person a bowl full of the smoothie base and let them add whatever fits their fancy.  The fun part is all the different combinations everyone will come up with.  You want to make your smoothie a little thick and make sure you use frozen fruit, to give it a thickness. TIPS: Smoothie bowls can melt quickly, so a good idea is to add the smoothie to each bowl and allow to set in the freezer for a few minutes so it can slightly solidify not freeze.

Smoothie with a Purpose

I love making my smoothies in the morning and also juicing, but it’s not just to feel good and have lots of energy. You can purpose your juicing and smoothie making, by just adding the right combinations for fruits, vegetable and herbs to help with specific health issues. Always talk to your Physician before starting any new diet plan, everything that is good is not always good for everyone. 

These three juice recipes are for helping you lose weight.

I drink about one or two of these a day. One for breakfast and one as my mid day snack.

I hope you enjoy these smoothies and juice recipes as you are on your journey to better health.
