Needless to say, this little bowl is packed with goodness you can FEEL good about.

And the best part of a smoothie bowl, IMHO, is the TOPPINGS.

I topped this one with banana coins, unsweetened coconut, pepitas, and an UNBELIEVABLY delicious Ommie Bar.

These bars are made locally here in Minnesota, and include nutritious, clean, and beautiful ingredients. They’re perfect on their own (I love grabbing one before a workout to give me energy), but they add extra deliciousness to a smoothie bowl like this.

I MEAN COME ON RIGHT?! A perfect little bite in every spoonful.

I love making smoothie bowls like this on the weekend or when I have the opportunity to work from home during the week. Eating a smoothie like this is such a wonderful way to remind yourself to slow down, enjoy what’s on your plate, and appreciate what it’s doing for your body.

This bowl includes my favorite protein powder, Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. 

One serving of this magical powder includes 20 grams of collagen (something our bodies need and supports skin, hair, nail, bone, AND joint health!), and 18 grams of protein. It’s unflavored, meaning I can mix and match what types of smoothies I use it in.

WIN WIN.

My freezer is always stocked with Smoothie Packs. I’ll prep my ingredients (specifically bananas when they start to get too ripe!), throw them in plastic bags, and toss them in the freezer! Freezing all your ingredients ensures a nice creamy result when you blend it all up with almond milk.

I love using different ingredients in my smoothies, too! As mentioned above, bananas are a must in every smoothie I make. But I’ve recently been throwing in frozen avocado, cauliflower, and as showcased here…..butternut squash.

The cinnamon gives it a little additional warmth, which is so enveloping and delicious.

TRY THIS! I swear you’ll love it. See the notes below the recipe for how I prep the squash!

Recipe Notes

For the butternut squash:

  • I prepped a whole butternut squash in a couple of ways for different uses:
    • Cubed, tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper - to throw in salads, toss with grains for a side, or puree in to a soup
    • Cubed, tossed with coconut oil - To cool completely, divvy up in plastic bags with other smoothie ingredients= Smoothie Packs!
