What do we athletes eat for breakfast before a day of catching waves and looking awesome? We need to start the morning off right with lots of energy for busting moves without weighing us down. We need surfer smoothies.
You too can fuel up for whatever your day holds with a big healthy and super delicious smoothie bowl. Here's how:
Surfer Smoothie Bowls
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen strawberries or other fruit
1 cup milk ( I like to use almond milk)
1 cup yogurt or kefir
a few ice cubes
1 fresh banana
granola, coconut, fresh berries and honey to sprinkle on top
Place all the frozen ingredients and liquids in a blender and blend until smooth. If it's too thin, add more frozen fruit. If it's too thick, add more milk. These measurements are just approximate. You can vary the ingredients and proportions to your liking, but this is my favorite combination. Pour your blended smoothie into a bowl and top with a little granola, a sliced up banana, sliced almonds, fresh berries, coconut, maybe a drizzle of honey.... whatever you like.
This breakfast is very filling without being heavy and will give you energy all morning whether you're catching waves, chasing children, or facing a long day at work.
The inspiration for this recipe come from Lanikai Juice in Kailua, Oahu.
