Well, with the holidays being officially over (mine extending even longer than usual), I think it’s high time to focus on some diet changes again. Last year I did a little study on reducing my sugar intake. This year, I want to focus on getting exercise every day, even if it’s just a mile walk around the parking lot at work, as well as getting more nutrients from my food.

When I was in London, I had my first ever smoothie bowl. As I love smoothies and smoothie bowls are perhaps one of the most Instagrammable foods of all time, it’s shocking I hadn’t tried one sooner. But y’all, they did NOT disappoint!

Upon arriving home from a trip indulgent in scones, tea sandwiches, and fish and chips, I quickly drove to the store to buy all of the fruits and veggies that I could possibly eat in one week and headed home to make my own smoothie bowls. The one thing I usually have trouble with is making a smoothie smooth without adding a ton of calories from juice. This time around I used the ALO Light aloe vera juice I got in my Degustabox this month to add flavor and health benefits without adding too many extra calories – win win!

My recipes pack in at least 8 grams of protein, 15 grams of fiber, half the calcium and almost all of the vitamin A and C you need for the day! It is the perfect breakfast or afternoon snack, at only about 275 calories.

Since you can make a smoothie bowl with just about any fruits and veggies, I decided to share two of my favorites that I have made. One is a purple/pink mango berry combo and the other is a mango banana that is a truer green color. Both are not overly sweet and definitely hide all of the greens that I usually turn my nose up at. I also love the different textures in these bowls, getting a little crunch from the granola, seeds, and fruits.

Try them both and let me know which one is your favorite!
