Two things I know for certain: #1 cherries are the best fruit ever, and #2 smoothie bowls are life. Now, you may disagree with me on one or both of those, but even so, give this one a try because it just might change your mind!
This beauty cools you off on a hot summer day, and whether you eat it for lunch, dinner or a snack, it's a healthy, whole food option that will leave you feeling totally satisfied.
Cherries give you a good dose of antioxidants and are anti-inflammatory, so they can keep you looking young while protecting you from illnesses like cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's, and obesity. Cherries also contain melatonin, which promotes a restful night of sleep!
Here is how I make my bowl (feel free to change up measurements if you are tracking macros and need to adjust):
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen cherries (save about 6 or 8 to chop for the top!)
1 tablespoon flax seeds
1 serving collagen peptides or vanilla protein powder
Blend together, pour into a bowl and top with chopped cherries and your favorite granola! ENJOY! XO
Food is fuel.
I love to cook and bake recipes that incorporate healthy whole foods and those nutritious macro and micronutrients into our daily diets. I also like to make treats though, because let's face it, everyone loves a good sweet now and then! My favorite part about cooking, though, is sharing my latest recipes with others. ENJOY! XO
