Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl

Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl | Nutrition Stripped, smoothie bowl, green smoothie bowl

You’re all going to think I’ve officially gone mental with this recipe, I can already hear my mom telling me “McKel, no one is going to eat that blue stuff!”- all in good fun. This Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl came to me, well on a beautiful blue summer morning a couple weeks ago, hence the name. It’s been really hot here in Nashville so my smoothie bowls are calling MAH name in the mornings for something simple, delicious, nourishing, and cold. This one hits all of those + it incorporates my beloved protein packed spirulina, omega-3 rich chia seeds, and a fiber rich veggie, which you’ll never guess!

5-minute Spinach Smoothie

5-minute Spinach Smoothie | nutritionstripped.com/5-minute-spinach-smoothie The title says it all, 5-minute Spinach Smoothie is one of my go-to green smoothie “recipes” that I make if I’m in a bind and don’t have all the ingredients to make my Stirpped Green Smooothie, if I’m in the mood for something else, or if I want to share this smoothie with friends and family who are new to the whole “green smoothie thang”. Just like my Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie, this 5-minute Spinach Smoothie is great to ease into the world of green smoothies.

Spinach is a great green to use for beginner green smoothies for a couple reasons, 1) it’s easy on your blender. Most of my clients and readers ask me about what greens they can blend in standard blenders, well spinach is the one! Spinach is naturally very delicate in texture, but also flavor which brings me to reason numero dos why this smoothie is great for beginners. Reason 2) it tastes great! The slightly sweet and subtle flavor of spinach goes really well with fruits, healthy fats like almond butter or avocado and especially with plant-based protein powders- it all blends beautifully together. …

Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie

Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie // nutritionstripped.com I think after the eventful week I’ve had here on Nutrition Stripped, it was only fitting for the first recipe to share on “the new look” of Nutrition Stripped to be a green smoothie…had to. This smoothie is also perfect for all of your green holiday celebrations this St. Patrick’s Day! My Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie is perfection, absolute nourishing perfection and so deliciously simple to make! I love this smoothie for breakfast, a snack, or even with a meal for a boost of those greens I simply adore.

Alright everyone, prepare yourself for one of the most refreshing, creamy, spring-like smoothies you’ve ever tasted. Bold statement I know, it’s that good. This is my go-to smoothie in the spring when I want something filling, but also “light” on my digestion to keep my energy levels up when I’m out and about, writing, shooting, etc. This is definitely a meal in a glass as it contains healthy fats, protein, fiber, and carbohydrates all in one lovely package- if you’re looking to make this a snack, simply cut the ingredients in half or save half for later!

Blueberry Banana Crunch Smoothie Bowl

Blueberry Banana Crunch Smoothie Bowl // nutritionstripped.com Blueberry Banana Crunch Smoothie Bowl has become a new favorite variation on the Stripped Green Smoothie Bowl, which is basically my way of eating “ice cream” for breakfast- although much healthier! If you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram and Facebook you know all too well that I adore my smoothie bowls in the morning especially post-workout. They’re creamy, cold, and thick enough to eat with a spoon just like ice cream or chilled yogurt except sans dairy and processed sugars. More importantly this Blueberry Banana Crunch Smoothie Bowl is very nutrient dense with added antioxidant rich blueberries topped with crunchy homemade granola.

Two of my favorite baked goods growing up were blueberry muffins and banana nut muffins- they were moist, starchy, and sweet (i.e. loaded with refined sugars!). What could be better than combining those two favorite breakfasts of mine into one nutrient dense bowl of goodness? I’m combining these two muffin classics with a healthy twist; and making them into one of my green smoothie bowls loaded with antioxidant rich blueberries, bananas, healthy fats, protein, and a sweet crunchy topping to satisfy my sweet tooth.
