Have you tried a smoothie bowl yet? If you haven't, and you want something that tastes super yummy and healthy at the same time, this Chocolate PB Hi-Protein Smoothie Bowl is your ticket! Protein in the Greek Yogurt, Peanut Butter and Protein Powder really adds up and helps re-build lean muscle after a work-out, and these bowls can be used as a meal replacement or healthy snack as well. This bowl has over 37 grams of protein!
I love using non-fat Greek yogurt in recipes. It is definitely one of the best sources of fat-free animal protein and it is also high in potassium, Vitamin B12, magnesium, calcium, amino acids, and is great for weight loss, digestion, immunity and what is used in the base of this smoothie bowl.
3 Tips to Making them Perfect
1: Bringing it Together -- Use these Basic ingredients in your Smoothie Bowl
1½ cups frozen fruit (s)
Combinations or alone of Greek yogurt, nut butter, protein powder
3-4 tablespoons water, juice, almond milk or milk of choice
--Oatmeal, avocado, silken tofu and ice can also be used as thickeners as well. --
One thing for sure, you don’t want the consistency of your smoothie bowl to pour like a thin smoothie. The texture should be thick enough that the smoothie sticks to the back of your spoon. And after licking the spoon, I can attest. It tastes good and no brain freeze. LOL
2: Blend in the blender!
3: Pretty it up with some toppings! Create your own design with fresh and dried fruits, granola, chia, flax and hemp. Almonds, walnuts, pistachios, honey, chocolate, chocolate nibs, coconut, Whoa...can you just imagine how many different flavor smoothie bowls you could come up with?
You can use a smoothie recipe you already know and love too! All you have to do is use less liquid or add a little more of something thickening, like a couple of tablespoons of oatmeal or a half of a frozen banana and blend as you normally would.
