too good for a straw

I made a promise that if my fiance ever bought me a Vitamix, I’d stop eating my protein smoothies from a bowl…..

What he doesn’t know won’t annoy him, right?  Especially if he doesn’t see me eating it?

As much as I love slurpin’ up a smoothie through a straw, I prefer to pour mine right into a bowl and enjoy it with a spoon.

It feels like a treat in the morning- almost like a bowl of fro yo or ice cream for breakfast- and I can savor it MUCH longer. Otherwise, I’ll drink it up in 2.5 seconds and I won’t give myself enough time to feel full!

Here’s the recipe I made today:

WholeSAM Protein Oat Smoothie Bowl:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • few handfuls of spinach and/or kale
  • 1 scoop of chocolate whey protein powder
  • 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
  • Enough almond milk to get it all moving
  • Big dash or two of cinnamon

Topped with 1/4 cup raw oats for some added fiber!


Don’t worry, there’s more to come in the world of wholeSAM smoothies! Can’t wait to share some of my other favorite smoothie recipes!

What’s your favorite smoothie?  Is it a protein smoothie or a regular fruit smoothie?
