This Butternut Banana Collagen Glow Bowl is healthy, delicious, and so simple! Add your favorite protein (mine includes collagen!) for an extra healthy boost. Add your favorite toppings such as coconut, nuts, seeds, and fruit. Delicious eaten with a spoon or a straw!
In anticipation of this delicious and nutritious smoothie bowl, I posted a little Instagram story about it.
I have never gotten more questions about what is in a recipe! Sounds like you guys would like some more smoothie bowl recipes, and I am more than happy to deliver.
But let’s talk about this gorgeous bowl of goodness.
This smoothie bowl is PACKED with feel-good nutrients:
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B6 and B12
- Vitamin C
And on, and on, and on….
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.
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!
