I used to think the whole idea of a smoothie in a bowl was weird and didn’t understand it. They seemed so unnecessarily complicated with all the layered fruit and coconut and chia seeds and I wondered why people bothered. Now I’m totally on board. I totally get it. My creations are quick and easy to make and thought they vary slightly, they generally include banana, mixed frozen fruit, spinach, protein powder, almond milk, and then are topped with granola and kiwi, strawberry, or blackberries if I have them. I blend them with a Ninja Bullet blender. I actually prefer mine to Playa Bowl’s.

This granola is very good. I usually make my own sugar-free granola but when I ran out, I was happy to find this. Highly recommend.

This blender is a workhorse. We use ours almost every day.

I like this brand of protein powders. Both the vanilla and the chocolate.
