Gut Healing Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

Recently I posted My Favorite Smoothie Mix.....we have been making and enjoying smoothies for a long time now but after a while, even with lots of greens and super-foods some smoothies seemed lacking. They didn't keep me full long enough and often they seemed too sweet with lots of fruit and sometimes added honey or other sweeteners.

I was learning more about the importance of healthy fats so I started experimenting trying to find ways to add lots of healthy fat to my smoothies. Then I found that even natural sweeteners can be overdone and that I was loosing a taste for things that were too sweet.....fruit is plenty sweet and you don't even need a lot.

Then I figured to round things out it needed to have to good amount of protein. Not only did this make it a great pre or post workout smoothie but a perfect meal in and of itself keeping me full for hours.

Then while I was at it why not add some gut nourishing and healing ingredients since most of our guts need quite a bit of TLC.  This smoothie bowl is just the first of many of the fun smoothie recipes I have created that me and my family have been enjoying for quite some time now. I hope you enjoy this one I look forward to sharing even more!

Gut Healing Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl
makes 2 or 3 bowls depending on size

1 cup coconut milk (I like to add a bit of kefir here too for the probiotics)
2 heaping scoops of My Favorite Smoothie Mix
1 frozen banana
2 cups frozen strawberries
1 Tablespoon Coconut oil or MCT oil (a handful of walnuts or cashews here works too)
1/2 cup crushed ice (optional if you like them really cold and thick)

Sliced fruit (strawberry and/or banana)
Granola or I used some of my crushed up candy bars in the pictures
sliced almonds, chia seeds (optional)

Blend all ingredients except toppings into blender.  If you want it thicker add more frozen stuff ;) if you want it thinner add more coconut milk or a little water. Pour into bowls add toppings in a fun pretty way!
