Mornings can make or break a day. After I started implementing my morning routine, I really saw the difference in my productivity and attitude. Breakfast is a part of the routine, but I can always feel the difference when I have lots of fruits and veggies for breakfast and when I have lots of carbs. So, I am making a conscious effort to get in more vitamins in the mornings! Smoothies are such a great way to do this, but sometimes I want to sit down and feel like I am actually eating a meal instead of drinking one. Enter the healthy tropical smoothie bowl!
My tropical healthy smoothie bowl is so good- the smoothie is packed full of flavor and toppings give it a little crunch. I love that each bite has something a little different- and the texture is so good! I am not a big lover of vegetables, unfortunately, so knowing that right off the bat I have a serving of greens in makes me feel better.
To add a little extra sweetness, I used Truvia’s new product, Truvia Nectar. I love to use honey or agave in my smoothies, but don’t love the extra calories. Truvia Nectar is honey blended with stevia leaf extract, and has 50% fewer calories per serving than sugar. Plus it is twice as sweet as honey, so you only need a little bit! I can’t wait to try it in coffee too!
To make the smoothie I blended all of the ingredients- making sure there were no clumps! I blend the spinach and coconut water first, and then add in the fruit once that is smooth- I feel like there aren’t clumps of spinach that way! This is one of my favorite recipes for a smoothie- and one I will definitely grab and go on a hectic morning!
2 cups spinach – preferably organic
1 1/2 cups coconut water – preferably organic
1 kiwi – peeled and cut in half
1 banana – peeled and cut in half
1 cup frozen mango pieces
Then it is time to add the toppings! You can really add any fresh fruits and seeds you would like, but I love this combination! And the kiwi makes me feel like I am on vacation!
Seeds – I used pumpkin seeds
Truvia Nectar (1/2 teaspoon or more to taste)
This smoothie bowl is a game changer. Lots of fruits and veggies but served in a way that I can sit down and chat with Doug over breakfast. It keeps me full, keeps me feeling good, and keeps me coming back for more!Print
