My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Without a doubt, one of my favorite treats, especially after a workout!  It hits the spot – reduces my sweet cravings, replenishes glycogen stores (after training) and leaves me feeling satisfied!

Creamy Vanilla Bean Protein Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients

Vanilla Protein Nice Cream Smoothie Bowl
Ingredients for 2 servings

  • 1/3 cup Almond Breeze almondmilk, vanilla flavor OR unsweetened
  • 10oz (284g) frozen banana
  • 1 vanilla bean (or 1 tablespoon vanilla extract)
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (vegan or whey isolate)
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter
  • Toppings (optional)
    • crushed pecans
    • unsweetened cacao nibs
Steps
  1. To a food processor (or high powered blender), add the ingredients in the order they are listed. Blend until smooth and thick.  Note: You may have to take off the top and scrape the sides using a spatula and blend again in order to fully mix all of the ingredients.  For a thicker consistency to create “scoopable” ice cream, add only 1/4 cup almondmilk and follow these steps.
  2. Add to a bowl with your favorite toppings – just remember to account for the added calories IF you are tracking your caloric intake since some ingredients like nuts and dark chocolate chips tend to be high in fat and/or sugar.
