Immunity Boosting Tropical Smoothie - 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. 

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.

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.

In an era with so many opinions about health flying around helter-skelter, I think it’s important to keep a hard stance and be an advocate for your own health. Only you know what’s right for you!

This immunity-boosting smoothie is packed with nutrients to support a healthy immune system and keep you strong during your day-to-day busy life. Turn it into a smoothie bowl, if that’s your jam!

    As a runner I fuel my awesomeness with a healthy, mostly plant based diet filled with a variety of unprocessed foods.

  2. Yolanda

    I’m trying to live be a more natural and organic lifestyle: whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

  3. Shirley

    We had a smoothie this morning. I really like your recipe and we are ready to change our morning blend. Great photos!

  4. Jill

    I have the same breakfast nearly every morning: old fashioned oats, chia, water/milk, sliced bananas, cinnamon, cottage cheese mixed in, unsweetened coconut flakes, & walnuts.

  5. jordan @ dancing for donuts

    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 🙂

  6. Bailey

    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!

  7. Aly

    This looks great! I love to start my day with a good sweat session, followed by a nutritious & awesome smoothie bowl! 🙂

  8. Christina

    Breakfast is my favorite meal usually consisting of a variety of grains, fresh fruit and eggs. Excited to try Bob”s Red Mill protein power to add a new twist to my mornings.

  9. Donna Cullins

    Thank you for introducing me to Bob’s Red Mill nutritional boosters. I love to fuel my mornings with smoothies. I would love to win this package to try these boosters. I am trying to get my health back.

  10. jessica

    This smoothie looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it! And I didn’t know about Bob’s protein powder; I’ll definitely be looking into that!!

  11. Natalie

    I “fuel up” in the mornings by sitting with my husband and having coffee together…just enjoying each other and the new day (before we get going in our days).

  12. Kim Weber

    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.

  13. Allie

    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.

  14. Catherine

    I go back and forth between eggs & avocado toast and smoothies! It depends on home much time I have!

  15. Jeannie

    I’ve been hooked on your quinoa, kale, egg bowls. Keeps me strong for hours. Love the balance in this smoothie. Will have to try the BRM protein powder.

  16. Samantha

    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!!

  17. slywlf

    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!

  18. Michelle Westra

    I love making smoothies and so does my whole family. It’s so fun trying different varieties. I love Bob’s Red Mills too.

  19. Taryn T

    Unfortunately, I have been eating junk to fuel my awesomeness. However, my summer goal is to get clean, and more awesome. This prize sure would help.

  20. Kayla

    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.

  21. Jordan D.

    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.

  22. Heather S

    I eat a lot of fruit and veggies daily, drink a lot of water and practice yoga daily. Thanks for the super RAD giveaway!

  23. Nicole Flynn

    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.

  24. Vickie

    Your bowl is the bomb..beautiful too..must pin.
    Generally fruit, multigrain muffin..oatmeal, yogurt with nuts, berries, chia and or match rotation.

  25. Laura Osier

    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.

  26. Theresa

    I love to fuel my workouts with Vietnamese spring rolls and peanut sauce, because I want something both light and peanut buttery =).

  27. Diana Cote

    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. 😉

  28. connie tillman

    I have never had a smoothie bowl! I do love smoothies, and always try to eat a good breakfast

  29. Trish

    I drink smoothies regularly for my stomach disorders and they are easier to digest. Protein powders are very important for my well being and health. Haveta try these smoothie bowls. Thank you for this giveaway and chance to win. ????

  30. monique s

    I fuel my awesomeness with lots of fruits and veggies and whole grains. I love smoothies and steamed veggies and lots of grains like quinoa

  31. Marianne

    Walking out the door to fresh blueberries raspberries cherries and strawberries this time of year! Lucky to be able to grow them at home!!!

  32. Audrey Stewart

    I drink Carnation Instant Breakfast every morning. I also take vitamins and eat a banana in the car.

  33. Ellen

    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.

  34. angie w

    Smoothies, staying hydrated throughout the day, and making healthy snacks (like energy bites) to have on hand!

  35. Lissa Crane

    I love to do all kinds of crazy smoothies to fuel my awesomeness! I just did a dragon & kiwi fruit smoothie and it was amazing!!

  36. desiree

    since iam diabetic and anemic i try to eat enough veggie and then the fruit i eat them at least 2 time or more a day and then we walk up to 8 mil a day

  37. Mary Beth Elderton

    I fuel up every morning with a veggie and fruit packed smoothie (with flax meal) and a boiled egg. Super nutrition. I love Bob’s Red Mill—part of my pantry looks like a Bobs grocery store display lol

  38. Marty

    I keep trying to like the whole smoothie bowl idea, but it just weirds me out. It’s like putting spaghetti in a glass or eating broccoli on a stick.

  39. Charlene Canfield

    My favorite is a Chocolate peanut butter smoothie. Chocolate peanut butter protein, teaspoon peanut butter, silk light chocolate silk and ice. Blend in the bullet… Can’t get much better than that!

  40. chickie brewer

    I use to have a lot of respritory issues .. Recently I notice when I bought smoothies after work I felt better….Therefore I decided to make them at home instead.. Now I feel awesome in the mornings.. Also I see you use turmeric powder… That is one ingredie
    nt that i want to try in one of my smoothies!

  41. Kim Reid

    I like to have smoothies with either protein powder or high protein Greek yogurt and various fruits to fuel up!

  42. Maryann D.

    I fuel my awesomeness with healthy breakfasts like oatmeal, cereal and fruit or yogurt. I eat vegetarian also during the day.

  43. Elizabeth Miller

    My daughter and I make smoothies almost every morning. She has to be at school so early she really does not feel like eating food. This would be great to boost her immunity for school.

  44. Margaret Appel

    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.
