Today I’m sharing this easy recipe for delicious smoothie bowls in my attempt to make healthier breakfast choices in the new year.
How are you doing on your New Year’s Resolutions?
One of the first books I read this year was “The Case Against Sugar” and I shared while I was reading it how I was working on finding ways to eat a little bit less sugar (kicking it off with a month without dessert).
The biggest lurking culprit in my day is breakfast. It is so easy and convenient to reach for a sugary boxed cereal so I’ve been on the hunt to find other filling, tasty, and healthier things to start my day with.
When I asked my health guru friends what their go-tos were, the most popular answer was, hands down, smoothies.
I’ve always loved smoothies but wanted something a little out of the box – and something I could sit down and eat at the table with my kids in the morning.
The foundation of this smoothie bowl is the FAGE Total 0% Plain Greek Yogurt. If you don’t have time to blend up the smoothie, you can totally just eat the yogurt by itself because it’s so delicious, sprinkling on your favorite toppings for even more flavor. It is thick, creamy, slightly sweet, and has a subtle tang that is really delicious. It comes in a few different milk fat levels, allowing you to customize your smoothie to fit your lifestyle.

Here’s what you need for the smoothie bowl:
(I double this to share with the kids or with Ben)
- ⅓ cup FAGE Total 0% Plain Greek yogurt
- ½ banana
- ⅓ cup blueberries
- ½ cup spinach leaves
- ¼ cup non sweetened milk of choice (dairy, almond, coconut – I use a low sugar, high protein dairy milk)
- 1 tsp protein powder (optional)
- 4 ice cubes
- Granola and blueberries for topping
All you do is mix everything in the blender, pour into a bowl, and top with berries and granola. I love that it’s delicious and filling. My next goal is to experiment with freezing individual servings of the spinach, blueberries, and banana so I can grab and dump them in the blender each morning – anything to make it easier!
I’d love to hear your go-to breakfast favorites. What do you find yourself eating the most often?
