Power Packed Orange Smoothie Bowl (with Turmeric) is super delicious and packed with nutrients to help you start your year refreshed and filled with energy. It makes a perfect breakfast or anytime snack or light meal.
I couldn’t wait to share this ‘Power Packed Orange Smoothie Bowl’ recipe as it’s my favorite sunny bowl of breakfast these days. After all, that month of holiday eating combined with the holiday activities (shopping, hosting parties, meetups with friends, late nights), we both were feeling so tired and almost sluggish in our daily activities that I definitely needed to come up with a ‘pick-me-up’ food quickly to supercharge us. And that’s when I made this smoothie bowl also called ‘Our Little Bowl of Sunshine’ … ( I literally drooled and kept looking at the bowl for 5 minutes before digging in). We were in Safeway (grocery store) when I thought of this and right in front of me was the Minute Maid Light pack and that’s it, we quickly brought rest of the ingredients like fresh cut fruit from the produce section, a few oranges and bottles of “vitaminwater” and POWERADE. Once home, I gathered rest of the ingredients (which I already had at home) like Minute Maid Orange Juice, protein powder, oats, pistachio, yogurt, and turmeric (as it calms our digestive system + heals it) – Picture Below We are also adding pomegranate seeds to decorate the smoothie bowl, for that crunch (also, we are inseparable in winters – I just love pomegranate seeds so much). The smoothie bowl is literally made in 2 minutes and I took a minute to decorate this bowl which I’m absolutely in love with. Also, I feel after all that month of eating everything, it’s best to relax our system by consuming more fresh fruits. They not only add all that nutrients + fiber to our diet but taste awesome (and involve no-cooking 😉 ). I’m also making this smoothie bowl whole lot citrussy (Vitamin C gives us that extra power to fight sluggishness + cold) hence I’m adding Minute Maid Light Lemonade + Minute Maid Orange Juice + fresh oranges. The addition of oats and protein powder makes it more filling and we definitely need all the protein especially in the morning to help energize our system. Hence, I definitely was so excited to share this ‘Power Packed Orange Smoothie Bowl’ recipe with you’ll to help you stick to your New Year goals or we can call it a – “Starting Your Year Refreshed”!Before you make that visit to Safeway, Take Advantage of a great deal they are running –
