Triple Berry Smoothie Bowl
Smoothies are a great way to start off the day if you are trying to get in a lot of nutrients from fruit at once. I like to add protein powder so it becomes a full balanced meal, and keeps me satisfied longer. The one I am sharing with you today is made from all berries, so it is packed full of heart healthy antioxidants. Although smoothies are great for pouring into cups for when you are on the go so you can drink them with a straw, if I have time, I like to make smoothie bowls, so that I can add delicious toppings to them and enjoy them with a spoon. Of course I blend them a little thicker with less liquid, so that they are almost like a healthy ice cream. If you top them off with things like healthy nuts and seeds, you can get some extra heart healthy ingredients in as well. But of course, feel free to be creative, you can top them off with whatever you have on hand!
