Pineapple-Strawberry Smoothie Bowls – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Smoothies are a quick blended drink to enjoy before rushing out the door to start your day.  When I heard of smoothie bowls, I thought, “What,” eating a smoothie from a bowl?  Yes, I know the concept is a little unique, but if you haven’t tried one, don’t knock it.

Smoothie Bowls are actually more satisfying because you eat them with a spoon instead of sipping them from a to-go mug.  The idea of pureeing a blend of your favorite fruits, protein powder, a little nut milk and topping them with more fruit, seeds and nuts is very enjoyable – it’s more like your favorite old school cereal, but with a healthy kick.

Pineapple-Strawberry Smoothie Bowls are super easy to prepare and I think the combination of both fruits gives them a tropical flair – so you might want to put on your hula skirt during breakfast.  To top them off, a nice combination of seeds & nuts gives them another note of fun.

Ingredients

1 cup diced pineapple

1 cup sliced strawberries

2 scoops vanilla protein powder

1 cup cashew milk, almond or rice can be substitued

1 tablespoon chia seeds

2 teaspoons honey

2 tablespoons slivered almonds

1 tablespoon sunflower seeds

1 tablespoon flaxseed

(Makes 2 Bowls)

1. In a blender, add two-thirds of sliced pineapple and strawberries.  Add in protein powder, cashew milk, chia seeds and honey, puree for 1 minute.  Add 2 big handfuls of ice and puree again for 2 minutes.

2.  While smoothie is blending, add almonds, sunflower seeds and flaxseed to a dry skillet.  Place over medium heat and toast, until flaxseed begin to pop – about 3 minutes.  Remove from heat.

3.  Pour smoothie into two bowls, and top with remaining fruit and toasted seed and nut mixture.  Enjoy!
