Lately I’ve become a “Smoothie Bowl” junkie. I’ve been sharing beautiful photos of my creations on Instagram, but never showed how I make them. I’d also been getting tons of requests from my friends to share my smoothie bowl recipe. I kept telling them that I’d send them the information but decided “what the heck” I’ll just share it on the blog.
The secret to my smoothie bowls smoothness is mixing a little yogurt and little almond milk to get the perfect texture. In my recipe I use Silk Dairy-Free yogurt because it has a creamy texture (that I need for my smoothies), it provides 6 grams of plant-powered protein per serving, it’s free of dairy, free of cholesterol, free of artificial colors, lactose-free, and it’s just delicious.
Because I’ve watched way to many documentaries about “milk,” I don’t drink a lot of it at all. Plus one of my nieces is lactose-intolerant. Instead we substitute recipes that call for milk with Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk because it’s lactose-free, has 50% more calcium than dairy milk, no cholesterol, and we use the unsweetened version because it has less calories.
Since we were leaving my boyfriends parents house we swung by Walmart to grocery shop for a few items (they stay really close to Walmart), so I decided to pick up some Silk dairy-free yogurt, and Silk Almond Milk while we were there.
