Smoothie Bowls for the WIN!

Smoothie base, chia seeds, homemade granola and optional sprinkles 🙂

If you go to a traditional juice bar “acai bowls” are a SUGAR bomb x 10, but if you make your own (and skip the sprinkles :)) you can cut the sugar load and feel like you are having a treat all at the same time! The key is to make a smoothie base you enjoy. Today’s was (made for 3) a frozen banana, 1 cup ish of frozen blueberries, a few frozen strawberries, a dash of Vega vanilla protein powder, about 1/2 cup of my homemade almond/cashew milk and enough water to help me blend but keep it thick. You can easily toss in spinach and you wouldn’t even taste it! For the toppings you can be creative but we enjoy chia seeds, homemade granola, unsweetened coconut flakes, sprouted nuts or seeds and for missy I sometimes add a few dairy free chocolate chips.

I am extremely passionate about feeding our children WHOLE UNPROCESSED foods that nourish their bodies and feed their minds to grow and prosper. I typically keep Charly gluten, dairy, soy, food dye & processed food free. I am not 100% and we have found a balance but I am committed to leading by example to show other parents and children that it’s not hard. The above photo may look like an add for a sprinkle company but it’s not! I just want to show that in 1 day on Amazon I ordered 3 different kinds of sprinkles (thank you @supernatural) that are dye & soy FREE. Keep meals FUN for your kids. Put out the toppings and let them choose what THEY like, but only put out WHOLE FOOD options. Your kids only eat what you buy & prepare for them so think twice when you are in a fast food line and triple read a label when you are opening a package for them. Let our children grow, thrive and educate them that whole food nutrition will help to build their muscles stronger and their minds brighter.
