I debated between calling this a yogurt or a smoothie in a bowl. Even though it can be a smoothie, it was really thick so it needs to be eaten out of a bowl like yogurt. Usually, when I eat a smoothie in a bowl I add additional toppings. Since I didn’t add additional toppings, I think this is more like a recipe for a yogurt base. If you add additional toppings you can call it a yogurt bowl or a smoothie in a bowl since it is so thick. In fact, I think next time I will definitely add banana slices, almonds or walnuts, and maybe even hemp seeds on top for more texture and more of a filling breakfast.
- 1/2 cup plain Amande yogurt
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 banana
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp spirulina*
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a bowl and add additional toppings if desired.
*If you don’t have spirulina, you can omit, but I suggest using a small handful of spinach for added nutrition.
This yogurt is great for breakfast if you add those additional toppings for a more filling and satisfying meal! The spirulina is a great energy boost and the banana will give you additional energy and nutrition as well!
