Who loves smoothie bowls? So easy to make and nutrient dense, what’s not to love?
I’ve been using oat milk in my smoothies lately. It’s vegan, lactose free and a great source of B vitamins. The colour in this smoothie comes from pink pataya powder (aka pink dragon fruit). Pataya strengthens the immune system and is packed with vitamin C. You can find the powder it in most health food stores or order it online. Rawnice makes a great one, link below:
The key to a very thick smoothie bowl is to not add too much liquid. Don’t be tempted to add more and use frozen fruit for best results.
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 scoops vanilla protein powder (vegan or whey)
- 1 tbsp pink pataya powder
- 1 cup oat milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen strawberries and/or raspberries
- 1 tbsp collagen powder (optional)
Place all smoothie ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend all until smooth and creamy consistency. Transfer the smoothie into your favorite bowl and top with your favourite fruit. Hershey’s kisses optional!
