Smoothies are a quick and satisfying way to get your nutrition on the go, but some smoothie bowls are actually quite a sight to behold. By creating a smoothie as a base (for the bowl) you get to “decorate” it with a creative array of toppings such as flaxseed, chia seeds, granola, coconut, berries, fresh fruit or even chocolate shavings to turn them into a heartier meal.

Make sure you have the right equipment to make your smoothie bowl. I recommend this high-powered blender. It can do anything…and it’s not just for smoothies! Here are some gorgeous bowls for your smoothies – so pretty!

When the weather is hot, lemon and herbs and a great way to re-hydrate. This lemon spritzer is so easy to make, plus there’s an adult version available in the recipe card down below, too. I love making this and keeping it in the fridge. It keeps really well in this glass pitcher.

I don’t know about you, but keeping herbs fresh before I use them up has always been a problem for me. Well, check out these herb savers! I love that they’re BPA free and they’ll keep a range of herbs and veggies fresh, longer.

My Vitamix has never been so happy! These are a few of my favorite things: smoothies, cheesecake, and strawberries. So when I decided to throw a dollop of cream cheese into my Vitamix one morning, I also grabbed a few frozen strawberries, because #strawberrycheesecake, ya’ll! Of course, I kept it healthy with unsweetened coconut milk and my favorite vanilla protein powder. For sweetness, I added frozen banana chunks, but if you need to keep this Keto, just leave the bananas out; the strawberries may provide enough sweetness for you!

Strawberry Cheesecake Protein Smoothie

As always, I like to blend my smoothies in stages in a high-powered blender such as a Vitamix or Blendtec (I use this one) to ensure the most, uh… smooth outcome. I mean, it’s called a smoothie, right? 😉

First to go in the blender is the liquid. I use coconut milk (from the carton) but almond milk would work fine, too. Then I add my protein powder and blend. Then I add the cream cheese and blend again. Lastly, I add the frozen banana and frozen strawberries. If at this point your smoothie is too thick, just add a dash of water to thin it out.

I hope you try this yummy smoothie, especially while fresh strawberries are in season. I love to get a bucket of gorgeous, ripe strawberries at our farmer’s market, wash and dry them well, trim the green leaves off the top and bag them up for the freezer for my smoothies. Ah ~ the goodness! Enjoy!
