Sap On Tap Infused Smoothie Bowl
As the weather is [finally] getting warmer and it’s feeling more like summer, smoothies are a quick, satisfying and refreshing go-to for us. Depending on what goes into the blender, smoothies can be great for pre-workout, post-workout, or as a meal! However, if you’re purchasing smoothies away from the home, it’s important to be aware of what’s inside. Did you know smoothies can have MORE calories than a milkshake?! If portion sizes are not carefully measured, smoothies can actual delay and slow progress towards our goals, despite healthy ingredients being used. With that being said, do NOT fear smoothies! All we need to focus on is keeping our portion sizes in check, just as we do with our other meals.
So… what’s in this bowl you may ask?! (Note: this smoothie was made for post-workout.)
Here we have blended together:
1. ½ cup frozen cauliflower
2. ¼ cup frozen riced beets
3. 1 scoop Collagen Whey Vital Protein powder
4. ½ cup (4 oz.) Sap On Tap Replenish
5. ½ cup (4 oz.) unsweetened vanilla coconut milk
6. ½ cup frozen strawberries
7. 1 cup fresh kale
8. 1 scoop Regular Girl
9. ¼ - ½ cup Poop Like a Champion Cereal
10. ½ cup ice
11. 1 packet TopBit Mixed Berry
*Makes 1 serving.
