Treat Yourself to a Feel-Good Snack

self-love

One of the ways that I like to show myself some love is by treating myself to a healthy (and pretty) snack. It’s so easy to pillage through the fridge or pantry and quickly munch on something that’s either not very good for you, or just sort of boring and unfulfilling. I’m definitely guilty of this, and it usually leads to more bad snacking.

I’m the type of person who appreciates a good smoothie bowl. I especially like making them at home because I have total control over what goes into my smoothie bowl. The one pictured above is a new favorite. It’s jam-packed with antioxidants, and it’s so yummy.

I assure you that if you make yourself this smoothie bowl, you will feel so good. Not only will it taste great, but you will be making an effort to satisfy yourself with a nice, healthy treat. Little things like this are a great way to show yourself and your body some love.

If you’d like to make this smoothie bowl, here’s what I used:

  • 2 bananas
  • 5-6 fresh strawberries
  • 1 Trader Joe’s unsweetened, organic acai puree packet
  • 1 serving of collagen peptides (optional)
  • 1 serving Trader Joe’s super green drink powder, berry flavor (optional)
  • chia seeds
  • trail mix

Chuck 1 and a 1/2 banana, 4-5 strawberries, and the acai puree into a blender. Also add in the collagen peptides and green drink powder if using. Blend until it’s thick and smooth, then transfer to a bowl. Top with the remaining banana and strawberries, as well as chia seeds and some trail mix. Enjoy!

I hope you will treat yourself, whether it’s to this smoothie bowl or some other healthy snack. Your body and well-being will appreciate the effort you make to take care of yourself. If you do try this smoothie bowl, I’d love to know how you like it.

Love always,

Kathleen
