With increased studying and late nights, there usually is an increase in unhealthy eating. While it’s okay to occasionally order Dominos to get your pizza fix, it’s not okay to order out every night of the week just because you’re not on your #springbreakdiet.
A smoothie bowl is something extremely simple to make, but it’s packed with great things for you! In between library sessions, this could be the healthy energy boost that will help you make it through another few hours of work.
To make a smoothie bowl, you have to add these ingredients into a blender:
- 1 cup coconut water
- ½ cup strawberries
- 1 ½ cup spinach
- ½ cup frozen pineapple chunks
These ingredients are just what my roommates and myself like to use, but there are tons of variations. Feel free to substitute with your favorite fruits!
When the ingredients you added into the blender are completely mixed, take the contents and pour it into a bowl. The amount of ingredients that I provided makes enough for two smoothie bowls, so be aware that you’ll have more left over!
Finally, it’s time to put on some toppings to give it additional taste. In the picture shown below I used:
- 1tbs unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1tbs chia seeds
- 1tbs hemp seeds
- Slivered strawberries
This was a meal that gave me servings of fruits and vegetables, while tasting great! Try it out and enjoy!
