Good morning loves! Today I woke up pretty early so I decided to do a little 30 minutes session of yoga and meditation. I love to start my day in that way. After that I immediately felt so relaxed and ready to kickstart the day! But not before breakfast. I always need to have a good breakfast in the morning. It’s my favorite meal of the day and I couldn’t live without! Even more I don’t understand who skipped brekfast :( In the latest years I also tried to include more fruits and vegetables to my first meal of the day. When I discovered there are a lot of different smoothies bowl recipes I decided to give them a try and I have been with them ever since! You can make it with basically every kind of fruit you have + a frozen banana and some water or milk. Lately, I have two absolute favorites and in this post I will tell you the recipe! Hope you love it angels. xx
RECIPE N. 1 – AÇAI BOWL
This is probably my favorite bowl ever! I could eat it everyday hehe but I always try to eat my açai bowl only before a good workout since it’s quite caloric. Here you have my basic recipe but sometimes I change toppings or I add some almond/peanut butter in the mix – actually depends on what I have at home. I am sure you will love it!
1 frozen banana
1 frozen açai pack
some milk or water (I use almond milk)
For the topping:
Start by preparing the base’s mixture. In the blender add the frozen banana, the açai and the milk or water. Mix it well since you have a creamy texture then pour the mixture in a bowl. Now you can add the toppings. I use some blueberries, rich in antioxidants, a little bit of cacao muesli (my favorite) and almond butter. Delicious!
RECIPE N. 2 – GREEN SMOOTHIE
Usually, I make this smoothie on those mornings when I don’t feel like eating too much but I am quite starving something sweet. I love the sweet taste of the mango (if you want it even more sweet you can add some dates!) and the cinnamon. YUM! Also the ginger is a very natural remedy for the throat, so I usually drink it when I don’t feel very well.
1/2 frozen mango
3 handfuls of fresh spinaches
fresh ginger (to taste, I use a very little piece)
1 teaspoon of cinnamon & a pinch of tumeric
Blend all the ingredients in the mixer until the frozen mango and the spinach are well mixed together. Add some almond milk if it’s a bit too thick and voilà! I usually make this one when I am running late or I have some appointments and I have to hurry up! Easy, fast and super tasty. Hope you angels enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
