Green Goodness Smoothie Bowl

"Don't worry about anything, instead pray about everything." The first sentence to one of my favorite bible verses (Philippians 4:6-7) and one that I all to often don't think about when I need to remember it. Seems that when life gets the most overwhelming and I need to pray the most I forget to.  But when I finally remember to, God is always there, and he always gives me what I need, even if it is not necessarily in the way I imagined.  Just a thought for the day, and something I have been thinking about lately.  

Something else I want to share is this smoothie bowl. Smoothie bowls what I make when I want something substantial for my post workout recovery, or just a snack.  I never make the same one twice either.  Not that I don't love them all...I just use what I happen to have on hand and it varies.  This time the theme was all things green.  Not even on purpose.  I had some green kiwi (which I decided to try freezing and see how they were in a smoothie), some green figs, very flavorful peaches (which I also had frozen because they were very ripe and I was afraid I would not get to them all in time), green figs, and some fresh mint from the farmer's market. Sounds like an odd combo I suppose, but it was freaking delicious, with some green tea (matcha powder) added in as well.   I topped it off with more fruit, and some hempseeds and flaxseed for omega 3s.  Trust me you need to try this one. It was super energizing too, which was just a bonus to it being delicious!

Green Goodness Smoothie Bowl
Serves 1

1 cup frozen peaches
2 cups frozen kiwi
a few fresh or dried figs
1 Tbsp raw matcha powder
a small handful fresh mint leaves
1 scoop raw vanilla protein powder (optional, I used Garden of Life brand or Sunwarrior Blend)
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 tsp pure vanilla extract
stevia to taste (optional, or your choice liquid raw sweetener)

ground flaxseed
shelled raw hemp seeds
kiwi slices
fresh figs (or dried)

For the smoothie, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, using the tamper to press the mixture into the blades.  Pour into a bowl, top with toppings (I used about 1 Tbsp of each).  Enjoy!
