Spring Smoothie

It’s almost spring – in fact, it’s only one day away! You would never know that by looking out my windows right now, considering the piles of snow decorating the lawns and streets.

But I couldn’t wait to ring in spring, so I decided to spruce up my smoothie regimen with a gorgeous splash of color. The best part is how simple and quick this breakfast (or any time of day meal) is to make. And since last month’s vegetarian/pescatarian month of conscious eating, I decided that even on the weekends, I would try to stay true to that principle of conscious eating.

That doesn’t mean, however, that I don’t enjoy small indulgences even while consciously eating. Take this smoothie bowl, for example – it’s naturally sweetened by beets, and by adding a little whipped cream on top, well… a little whipped cream makes everything better, right?

And after I threw this smoothie bowl together, I realized it was the most universal treat ever: gluten-free, low carb-high fat, low sugar, high protein and straight up DELISH.

So, without further ado!
