Low Sugar Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

I started making this smoothie this past winter after reading Kelly Leveque’s book Body Love. In this book, Kelly promotes eating according to the Fab 4 Method (protein, fat, fiber, and greens) in order to help turn off your hunger hormones and keep you feeling satiated for longer. Additionally, the book talks about a diet that is lower in sugar and carbs. I was inspired by this book to make a low sugar smoothie bowl that is full of protein and healthy fats in order to feel satisfied for long after consumption.

Like I said in my last post, this is not turning into a keto or low carb blog. I believe different ways of eating work for different people. I want to share a variety of different recipes that support several different ways of eating. All of my recipes, however, have one common thing- they are all made with real food. I’m a real food enthusiast, meaning I believe in eating food in its most natural and unprocessed form. In my mind, eating real good is #1 and any other diet that you follow comes second.

Pina Colada Smoothie Bowl

During the summer, I crave all of the fresh, hydrating fruits. One of my favorite isΒ pineapple.Β  Pineapple are full of nutrients, contain antioxidants, and help fight inflammation. They are also so incredibly delicious.

If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you know that one my go-to breakfasts is a smoothie bowl. Unlike most smoothie stores you see that market themselves as healthy but are actually the equivalent of froyo, my smoothie bowls are full of fruits and veggies and largely gluten-free and dairy-free. I love making smoothies for a few reasons. 1) It is a breakfast you can make it literally less than 3 minutes. 2) It is made with primarily frozen or other naturally shelf stable products such as nut butter so it is easy to have these ingredients on hand because they do not expire quickly. 3) They taste AMAZING! Literally like you are eating dessert, except they are packed with fruits veggies, healthy fats, and proteins. It is such an easy way to sneak in a ton of veggies.

In the spirit of summer, I was inspired to make a Pina Colada Smoothie Bowl. This smoothie is literally made with 4 ingredients. You read that right,Β ONLY 4 INGREDIENTS!

Green Banana Pineapple Smoothie

This is by far my favorite summer smoothie! It was actually the first smoothie combo that I have ever made. It’s a fun green color and tastes super refreshing. The green color comes both from spinach and wheatgrass. I love wheatgrass! It is the first superfood that I ever tried. It has a grassy taste that isn’t too strong so its an easy add to any smoothie. Wheatgrass is high in nutrients and antioxidants and can help reduce inflammation. However, wheatgrass is the leaves of the wheat plant and can contain gluten depending on how it is harvested. It may be best to avoid wheatgrass if you are gluten-free.

Note: This recipe is labeled as vegan, but is topped with bee pollen (optional). If you are trying to follow a vegan diet, you may want to skip the bee pollen topping.

Berry Beet Smoothie Bowl

I love the beet berry smoothie combo. It is the perfect level of sweetness and the avocado makes it taste so creamy and incredible. I’m not kidding when I say that I made this smoothie combo nearly everyday for a couple of weeks this winter. Yes, I eat smoothie bowls all through the winter. They are that good.

I recently came across Trader Joe’s frozen beet chunks and am so glad that I discovered them! I love making beet berry smoothies and these frozen beet chunks make it so much easier. These beets are already peeled, cut, frozen, and ready to be tossed into a smoothie! Definitely an easier alternative than preparing your own frozen beets.

This smoothie recipe tastes like a frozen treat, but is primarily made of fruit, veggies, and healthy fat. This smoothie is so creamy and delicious and contains healthy and fiber-rich ingredients and healthy fat that will keep you feeling full and satisfied for longer.

Low Sugar Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

I have some variation of this blueberry smoothie almost every morning. I do this for several reasons. One, it is delicious! Two, it keeps me full for hours.
