Today's breakfast calls for something special, these dressed up smoothies are really delicious and a great way to break the routine of eating meals through a straw (that is, if you have time to sit and eat in the morning!)
Banana Mango Smoothie Bowl (with a special twist!) 😍🍌🍓💪
1 ripe banana
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1/4 cup raw oats
1/2-1 tsp tumeric (to taste, I prefer more but that's just me! Could also sub with cinnamon if desired)
8 oz unsweetened almond milk (if you want to sub water of you are trying to stay lower in fat, that is okay too)
1 tbsp hemp hearts
1-2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used Orgain Vanilla Bean)
Place all ingredients in blender and mix until smooth like pudding, you may need to add a little water for smoother texture depending on your protein.
Toppings: the fun part...You pick! For this one I used
Fresh Berries (Strawberries blackberries blueberries and raspberries)
Raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
Kiwi fruit or other fresh fruit on hand
Cacao nibs (extra crunchy!)
See MFP nutritional info below for the smoothie, feel free to tweak/omit certain ingredients to fit your nutrient goals!
