Easter Smoothie Bowl
Happy Easter loves! I hope you all had wonderful days filled with nothing but good times and happiness, while of course not failing to keep in mind that today is celebrated for our savior. My day was spent with the people that mean the most to me. I'm so thankful for them and the amount of blessings that I have to thank God for are just endless. Anddd of course it was also filled with LOTS of festive fun, colorful eggs, and fabulous food.
I'm a little kid at heart and will never turn down an offer to go on an Easter egg hunt - because let's just face it, who would really say no to eggs filled with candy?! Not me, that's for sure. Finding my basket on Easter morning was always the best part. A few of other favorite holiday traditions are dying Easter eggs, having a huge Easter dinner, and of course church services to celebrate the Lord.
Brunch this morning consisted of a strawberry smoothie bowl topped with banana slices and honey toasted granola + lemon infused water!
- 2 frozen bananas
- 2 cups of strawberries
- 2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt
- 1/2 frozen banana (sliced)
- A few tablespoons of honey toasted granola
- 1 whole, small lemon (sliced)
- 16 oz. of fresh, cold water
For your smoothie, simply blend all of your ingredients together until smooth. I have a Ninja blender and it is absolutely amazing! However, today I got to use my boyfriend's parents' blender, which is a Vitamix. That is literally my DREAMMM blender and hope to one day own one!
Once your smoothie is ready, pour it inside of a bowl. Add on your toppings and your Easter smoothie bowl is complete! This granola is Bear Naked Brand and it tastes fabulous! It's made with whole grain oats, almonds, is free from any artificial preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, and any of those other monkey business additives, and contains about 10g of protein!
To make your infused water, simply add in your lemon slices to a cup or jar. Next, pour in your water. Additional optional steps you may take are to add ice cubes or to squeeze your lemon sliced a little bit for faster infusion (I might have just made that word up, I don't know). However, unlike berries which take a lot longer to infuse, you shouldn't have to mash or squeeze your fruit for the taste to arrive faster. You will taste the citric juice from the lemons right away!
Once again, I hope you all had an AMAZING Easter and got to spend it with those that truly hold a special place in your heart.
