One of the best ways you can keep yourself healthy right now is by eating right. If, for some reason, you do come in contact with the coronavirus, you will need your immune system to be as healthy and strong as possible to fight it off, so put away the pancake mix and leave the Eggo waffles in the freezer, because we have two great options to get your day started the right way!
Tropical Smoothie Bowl
Now, I will admit it, I am a cereal junkie. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it tastes good. Unfortunately, most of the cereals we all like are not exactly nutritious. They are packed with carbs and sugars that will drag us down for the entire day. Rather than eating cereal, get your sugars in a far healthier way with this easy-to-make tropical smoothie bowl.
- 1 banana, cut into large chunks (frozen)
- ½ cup pineapple chunks (frozen)
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup coconut milk
- ¼ cup raw honey
- ½ cup fresh pineapple (diced)
- 1 mango, sliced
- ¼ cup toasted coconut
- 2 tablespoons macadamia nuts, toasted and chopped
- 2 teaspoon chia seeds
- Blend banana, pineapple chunks, Greek yogurt, coconut milk, and honey.
- Blend until smooth, then divide into two bowls equally.
- Top the mixture off with the fresh fruit, toasted coconut, nuts, and chia seeds
To give it a little more flair, you can drizzle more honey over the top.
If you would like this to keep those hunger pains away a little longer, add a scoop of protein powder to the blended ingredients.
Avocado Banana Blueberry Smoothie
Smoothies are a great way to get the day started and are great for those of you that are in a rush. I also love to sip on one to both cool me off and provide some recovery after a good workout. This smoothie only takes a few minutes to make and you can have it ready to go even before you start your workout so you can gulp it right down while you cool down.
