There are some days when we just need a little brightening up first thing in the morning to get us geared up for the day. It happens to all of us right?
There are loads of really useful ways you can rely on to boost your energy and moods first thing in the morning such as meditation, exercise, dancing to your favourite tune or diving into the ocean, OR you could take the opportunity to boost your mood and your energy levels by creating a delightfully colourful and super nutritious smoothie bowl.
I love a good smoothie bowl for breakfast. They are so super simple (and quick) to make, easy for our bodies to digest and assimilate which is turn results in heaps of energy for the day, and you can pretty them up anyway you like to really lift your spirits. The key to a good smoothie bowl comes in using good quality real food ingredients. Think fruit, seeds, nuts, coconut, cacao and ice and you’re on a winner. Here’s one of my favourites to lift me on my moody mornings.
2 ripe bananas (frozen if you have no ripe ones)
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1 cup ice
4 medjool dates
1 tbsp shredded coconut
2 tbsp chia seeds
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Add your favorite toppings.
Sit down and take a minute to look at your creation before diving in. Then launch in with a smile.
