‘’Just like all my recipes, I encourage you to listen in to your body and give it what it needs. Craving more fat? Add in almond butter, full fat coconut milk, coconut oil, nuts, seeds, or avocado. Craving more protein? Add in your favorite plant-based protein, hemp seeds, or organic silken tofu even! Craving more fiber or greens? Add in more zucchini, spinach, or romaine. You can see there are many variations you can play with all within this one recipe. For example, if you’re in the mood for chocolate, add 1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder, cacao nibs to top, and chocolateplant-based protein powder for an added chocolate boost.’’ -Mckel Hill

The Trio of berries to use in smoothie bowls are raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries all for different reasons.

First off,raspberries give smoothie bowls an amazing thick texture due to their high fiber content, and they boost an added bonus of being one of several fruits that are low sugar.

Strawberries give it a thick texture but with a beautiful sweet flavor, so you don’t need much.

Blueberries on the other hand are loaded with antioxidants, far more than both raspberries and strawberries, especially wild blueberries. In case you might not have access to fresh berries right now , the best option is to use frozen organic berries as much as possible, plus it’s a good thing that they’re affordable and available year round no matter where you live. If you’re using local and seasonal berries in your area, I like to give them a good wash, dry, and then pop them in the freezer in anairtight glass container or a baggie right before they get “too ripe” or go bad. This freezes them at their peak ripeness and allows you to get the most nutrition and flavor for your buck!

Since we have a lot of fruit going on in this smoothie, it would be good to balance it out with a fiber rich vegetable that’s also great at giving this smoothie a smooth and creamy texture, like frozen chopped zucchini! Use frozen zucchini to add fiber, water, and texture without adding up the calories or grams of sugar like frozen bananas typically do.

To freeze zucchini, simple chop it up (you can leave peel on or off) and freeze it in a large container or bag just like you would bananas for a smoothie. Add to any smoothie for a low sugar option.
