Immunity Boosting Tropical Smoothie Bowls - packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and protein for a healthful breakfast! #vegan #paleo

This time of year, with vacations, kids out of school, back-to-back plans, and the need for continuous convenience, healthy eating habits can easily fall by the wayside. For me, the best way of ensuring I get the nutrition I need in the midst of all the running around, is to maintain a stock of solid resources in my pantry and a plethora of fresh produce in my refrigerator – that way, I can whip something up on-the-go and stay fueled in an efficient, high-impact way.

I partnered with Bob’s Red Mill to bring you this post and inspire you to Fuel Your Awesomeness. Let’s marinate on this for a paragraph or three, because fueling awesomeness should be our number one priority. I saw a quote the other day that resonated with me – “Self-care isn’t selfish. You can’t serve on an empty tank.”

One of the issues we have as independent, hard-working individuals is taking the time to nurture and uplift ourselves before trying to do so for others. We feel like we aren’t being good people when we’re giving to ourselves, when in reality, we become more a more valuable resource when we’re operating at full capacity. 

Immunity-Boosting Tropical Smoothie Bowls - packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and protein for a healthy vegan or paleo breakfast or snack!

I feel passionately about the topic, because life is far too short to not experience it with a full heart and body. Rather than being in the habit of neglecting ourselves, our time is better served by showering ourselves with love – one crucial way of showing ourselves we care is by feeding our bodies! I love that Bob’s Red Mill strongly advocates nutrition and brings it to your home with effortless convenience. They’re here to help fill your energy tank in the most positive ways.

As you know, smoothies and smoothie bowls are one of my choice snacks or meals because they pack so much nutrients in an easily-digestible space. I love supplementing my smoothies with high-quality protein powder to make it a well-balanced experience. I used Bob’s Red Mill’s Vanilla Protein Powder Nutritional Booster to add a nutrition boost (and delicious vanilla flavor) to this smoothie bowl.

The powder includes pea protein, chicory root (yielding fiber and prebiotics), chia seeds, probiotics, is sweetened with monk fruit sweetener, and is dairy-free and vegan. In this sense, you’re getting both protein and fiber as well as omega-3s, iron, and a healthy dose of good bacteria.

This immunity-boosting smoothie bowl (or just regular smoothie if you’re not into the smoothie bowl thing) is packed with nutrients to support a healthy immune system and keep you strong during your day-to-day busy life.

    this looks and sounds so delicious, and perfect for summer!! i’ve gotten super in protein powder in the last year or so to cut down on mindless snacking (on crap, mostly) and i’m in love. it’s so versatile!

    i love to fuel up with a good cup of coffee and if i’m lucky, a nice power walk with a podcast 🙂

    I fuel my day with a fresh seasonal fruit and eggs for protein! And of course too much coffee with my favorite almond milk creamer. If I had more time I would make a fresh smoothie every morning for work but rarely get the chance. 🙂 I love mornings!

    I drink/make smoothies all the time but have never had a smoothie bowl, they look tasty and more like ‘eating’ than just drinking a smoothie! I like this one sans macadamia nuts….anything else I can use with the same nutritional value? I also use unflavored Pea Protein, I feel like the flavored ones I have looked at have sweetener in them that I don’t want…I dislike the Stevia and don’t do sugar!! :oD
    I am going to try this right now as an afternoon boost!! Thanks.

    My favorite way to re-fuel after a long weekend or especially a workout is a green smoothie! I love to pack the blender with vanilla protein, kale, broccoli, and whatever fruit and superfood powders I have around the house.

    I fuel my awesomeness with natural, Whole Foods to give me the energy I need all day long. I do crossfit and love outdoor activities like hiking, paddleboarding and nature walks. Eat good, feel good. I love trying new recipes and I bake clean treats when I want something sweet, or eat some fresh fruit like strawberries!!

    As a 62 YO widow I am trying to get my awesomeness back after a long siege as a caregiver. Eating whole foods, nothing processed, and relying on local farmers markets as much as possible for fruit and veggies, eating seasonally/locally, which is quite different here in Florida than it was back in the Catskills! My gift to myself this past holiday season was a high powered blender so I can finally try out some of the fascinating recipes I keep finding that rely on these machines. So far it has mainly been used for making my morning smoothies, with maca, moringa, cacao, raw honey, spirulina, hemp protein powder occasional random fruit – whatever is handy, and plant-based milk of some sort – usually cashew or coconut but I recently discovered Ripple – a pea protein milk and like it. Now if I can just find time to exercise between my 1 1/2 jobs and taking care of my home and cat I might get my mojo back!

    I LOVE making smoothies, especially during the summer when I am craving something cold and refreshing. I usually try to get creative with ingredients. Lately, I’ve been adding unique things to my smoothies to spice it up (and keep the sugar low for my gut healing protocol). I’ve been adding frozen zucchini, frozen kale, maca powder, collagen peptides and even frozen pumpkin to make it creamy. Sounds weird, but it’s GOOD! I would love to win these nutritional boosters to help me be successful on my healing protocol.

    Strength-training requires a lot of protein. Coffee before a workout, and a high-protein meal afterwards. I love a good protein smoothie made with frozen fruit and veggies.

    I mostly fuel my awesomeness with hugs from my youngest, Emma, we imagine little tiny hearts floating up to the ceiling/sky as they go “hug-hug-hug-hug-hug” of course, that sometimes doesn’t cut it, so I rely on B12 gummy vitamins, and cups of coffee. I sometimes drink protein smoothies too, but haven’t found a good make-at-home version.

    Me, my husband, & 7 year old twins love smoothies! This smoothie bowl is a great twist on the drink. Tried it and everybodv loved it. So many different possibilities to imagine. I had some of Bob’s Red Mills Steel Cut. Oats left over. I had added raisins, apples, walnuts, and cinnamon to it. I put it in a blender with a banana, strawberries, and almond milk. Gave it a blend and it was delicious.

    I fuel up with fat and protein in the mornings (I avoid blood sugar issues this way), a tasty balanced lunch and smoothie packed with lots of superfoods like berries and flax, chia, coconut water and probitotics, for dinner another balanced meal and of course a sweet treat sometimes. 😉

    I love to bake & enjoyed going to Bob’s Red Mills store in Milwaukie. My Son calls it my happy place. Last month I was diagnosed with high cholesterol & high sugar. Now I have to change my diet & eating habits. I would love to try those healthy smoothies except I’m not sure where to start and what to purchase. I tried those protein powder before & it tasted somewhat chalky or maybe I’m not making the proper mix. I had googled some recipes except I’m a bit hesitant to try again.

    I make & keep chia puddings (protein powder added into the mix) in the fridge for go-to snacks & meal replacements. I blend bananas & strawberries with coconut or almond milk for smoothies or frozen treats. And there’s nothing like a mixed salad of bright greens & spinach leaves with apple cider vinegar/olive oil dressing to keep the engine revved.
