Banana Cream Pie Smoothie Bowl

I choose to be happy.  I choose to let the things in my life go that are not improving me or letting me grow.  You only have one life, so why not fill it with the good things and avoid the negative when you can. Yes, things may go wrong in my life, but I will handle them to the best of my ability with a good attitude.  I may not look perfect, or do everything right, but I am happy with myself, and that is important!  After all, I feel that I can not have good relationships with others if I am not happy with myself, and I would rather be a ray of sunshine to the people I am spending time with than a rain cloud.  Those are just my thoughts lately.  Kind of random I know, but if you think about it the things you put into your body can contribute to that happiness too!  If you are eating things that make you feel uncomfortable, then you will have a hard time being happy.  On the contrary, if you consume things that make you radiant and energized, you have a much better chance of feeling joyful.  I hope you choose to be happy to, because you deserve it!   Speaking of nourishing bodies, I have a smoothie bowl recipe I wanted to share with you all.  It made me very happy after my run last week!  If you enjoy banana cream pie, read on.

My counter has been taken over by bananas lately.  That is not a bad thing either, I love them!  I eat them every day in fact with my breakfast, and they energize and refuel my body so I can get done what I need to do! My favorite way to enjoy them though, is in smoothies.  Like these banana cream pie smoothie bowls. Why banana cream pie?  Well, it has always been one of my favorites and that was what I was craving.  So I made a creamy vanilla banana base that tasted like banana cream pie filling, and topped it off with some protein and omega 3 rich seeds (which I try to include every day in my diet), as well as some banana cream pie toppers I love like coconut and raw cacao nibs.  This was yummalicious!  I am always a fan of nutritious dessert for breakfast!

Banana Cream Pie Smoothie Bowl 

Serves 1
3 large bananas, frozen and cut into pieces
1/4-1/2 cup raw hemp milk or coconut milk (depending on how liquidy you like it, I like mine thick so I add less)
1 Tbsp raw maca powder
1 Tbsp raw lucuma powder (optional)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
stevia to taste (or your choice liquid raw sweetener)
1/2 sliced banana
sliced bananas
flaked dried coconut
cacao nibs
ground flaxseed
chia seeds
For the smoothie, combine all ingredients except the sliced banana and toppings in a blender and blend until smooth, using the tamper to press the mixture into the blades.  Pour into a bowl, stir in sliced bananas, and top with toppings (I used about 1 Tbsp of each).  Enjoy!
