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!

Super Seed Muesli with Hemp Milk

Super Seed Muesli with Hemp Milk

I hope everyone had an awesome holiday weekend, I had an awesome weekend of relaxing and hanging out with friends, but I’m happy to be back! It’s going to be a two recipe in one post kind of day, luck you! Super Seed Muesli with Hemp Milk is a new muesli recipe I came up with to hit my kitchen and it’s taken over my morning porridge by storm. I’ve been LOVING this mineral rich muesli and hemp milk lately, both together as a quick raw porridge with fresh summer berries, but also enjoyed separately. Many mornings I start my day off with some variation of the Stripped Green Smoothie- sometimes it’s for pre-workout or post-workout- followed by another breakfast which is some variation of muesli, porridge, oatmeal, or granola. What can I say, I love breakfast so much I eat it twice.

Blue-green Spirulina Milk

Blue Green Spirulina Milk, spirulina, nut  milk If you’ve all stuck with me so far- through encouraging you to drink your greens, sneaking vegetables into desserts, or turning a simple zucchini into past, then I have a hunch this you won’t be a surprise that I’m telling you to drink blue milk. I’ve made many recipes here on Nutrition Stripped using this blue-green algae, spirulina, but have yet to share with you all a staple drink I love making as well, Blue-green Spirulina Milk! First, I know the color and thought about drinking an algae can be completely off-putting and intimidating, but I promise once you get over the color (which I think is quite beautiful), the taste will speak for itself. It’s delicious and incredibly nutrient dense in comparison to the cows milk counterpart.

Whole foods are fun. I love being able to transform a simple vegetable, fruit, and spirulina in this case into something everyone can enjoy yet is completely innovative. Blue-green Spirulina Milk is a play on traditional nut milks that I’ve shared here before, it’s incredibly mineralizing due to the nature of spirulina, which contains a host of minerals, amino acids, and vitamins. I mix this with a classic nut milk recipe and it’s subtly sweetened with dates and vanilla. The end result is a beautiful blue-green colored nut milk that’s creamy, cool, healthy, and looks beautiful!

Banana Milk

Banana Milk, bananas, granola Bananas + water = Banana Milk. Technically this isn’t a “milk”, but it can be used exactly as you would use regular milk but in a non-dairy fashion and with more ease than making your own nut milks– which I’m still a fan of. Banana Milk takes less than 5 minutes to make, which is perfect if you’re on the go and want to add a couple nutrient dense foods to the mix to make it more satiating and calorically dense. Banana Milk is creamy, frothy, refreshing, filling and a great alternative to squeeze a little more nutrient density into your diet or even your little ones diets.

Why use banana milk? To be honest, to switch things up a bit! Homemade nut milks are great, but sometimes you want something a little more sweet and loaded with potassium and natural electrolytes. I love drinking this or pouring it over my Nourishing Muesli for a quick post-workout meal. This isn’t just for post-workout, although I’m a fan of meal timing and carbohydrate timing for specific goals, this can just as easily be enjoyed for a snack, breakfast, or even dessert.
