Lemon Green Smoothie Bowl with spoon

On the warm fall days like today I’m still enjoying smoothies. After yoga and my morning walk I get a great feeling of satisfaction by replenishing my body with a balanced breakfast of protein, healthy fat, carbs and 2 servings of vegetables. 

Now my latest thing is putting them into BOWLS. I find having a smoothie bowl with an assortment of toppings is ultra satisfying. I love eating it with a spoon like cereal.

I love walking outside in the morning feeling joy because I am alive. I don’t need any other reason to feel joy.
 
As I walk I appreciate the sky, ⛅️☀️the clouds, the trees, the abundance of fresh air and more. Walking and appreciating is a morning practice recommended by Abraham Hicks to raise our vibration creating  a wonderful day.
 
Even when problems occur we can take a breath and remember the joyful connection we felt in the morning and feel a little relief. I hope you enjoy your morning walk. 🥰🌿☀️

The basic idea of a smoothie bowl is to make a slightly thicker, more nutritionally dense smoothie (with things like avocado and nut butter) and then top it with an assortment of toppings that give it texture, like coconut, hemp seeds, berries, nuts, etc. 

You can top it with anything in your pantry that will make your smoothie a more substantial meal.

If you like greens, this Lemon Green Smoothie Bowl is perfect for you. Made with kale, parsley, avocado, and lemon, it’s refreshing but not sweet. There is 1/2 of an apple for a little sweetness. You can add more if you like a bit more sweetness or leave it out for a more tart flavor.

Choose the greens you like. Spinach has the mildest taste, kale is a little bitter, and romaine has a grassy flavor, but no oxalates or goitrogens.  Decide what’s best for you. This smoothie is the perfect way to start a healthy day!

I hope you LOVE this Lemon Green Smoothie Bowl and make it your own. It is nutritionally balanced, deliciously refreshing and super satisfying.
