I loved how dreamy + nutritious last month's Cacao Magic Cauliflower Smoothie Bowl was, so this week I decided to whip up a Green Dream rendition. I recommend creating this oh-so-yummy bowl when you're looking for an ultra nutritious breakfast or when you know that you'll be eating out later in the day and want to ensure your bod is super happy + nourished!
When you combine zucchini with heart-healthy avocado, leafy greens, and energizing Cacao Magic (plus vanilla + cinnamon for delightful flavor), you'll have an oh-so-yummy salad-meets-smoothie superfood drink. A big THANK YOU to Philosophie VIP Ambassador Blair Flynn for dreaming up + sharing this magical recipe!
I LOVE sneaking nutrient-dense veggies into smoothie bowls. While leafy greens like spinach and kale are easy go-to's, sometimes it's fun to venture out and try something different–like cauliflower! When you blend this cruciferous veggie with the chocolatey deliciousness of Cacao Magic, Cacao Bee, and Coconut Magic (not to mention 'nanas, almond butter, cinnamon, and vanilla), you're left with a dreamy, "I can't believe there's veggies in here!" treat to kickstart your day.
Be sure to bookmark this chocolatey dream of a smoothie! Created with almond mylk, ‘nanas, Cacao Magic, Coconut Magic, almond butter, and bee pollen, it makes for a nourishing breakfast, an energy-lifting snack, OR an after dinner dessert to satisfy that sweet tooth.
Kai, my 6½ year old, absolutely LOVES strawberries. He can never get enough of them and always asks that they be included in dishes + drinks around the clock! Therefore I thought it’d be fun to combine fresh berries with this dreamy Lavender Nut Mylk (one of my favorite calming recipes to whip up) to create an amazing concoction that would get Kai his strawberry fix + provide me with a dose of zen bliss.
After eating this I felt totally full from all the fiber, and the sweetness satisfied my cravings without me feeling like I needed to eat a whole pumpkin pie. With regular desserts made with real sugar, dairy, and cream...there’s no stopping me! I seriously don’t feel full at all and continue to stuff my face and proceed to feel so uncomfortable later. Sugar is seriously addicting! Treats like this smoothie taste delicious but are full of nutrients, so your body will feel happy and fulfilled!
I was craving a big bowl of greens in smoothie form, but we were fresh out of greens!! What’s a girl to do? Between the açai, the matcha, and the Green Dream...I think we had our bases covered! It may sound like a weird combo, but that’s usually when the magic happens! It was the perfect post workout treat! The one thing that I consistently do and can attribute to helping me achieve my fitness goals is superfoods. Incorporating greens and superfoods whenever I can, even when I can’t get a workout in, is really what keeps me looking and feeling amazing! #AbsAreMadeInTheKitchen
