This is a perfect post workout meal or breakfast! You may even just need this in your life for a sweet bite. It is THAT good and decadent! You can make a big batch and keep in the fridge as part of your meal prep for up to 3 days.

Servings: 1 marvelous bowl all to yourself

Combine in a food processor:

  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • Dashes of cinnamon

Blend until whipped and smooth, about 1-2 minutes.

Topping: Oven roasted nuts (chopped walnuts , almonds or pumpkin seeds)

  1. Any nuts of your choosing. Here we used walnuts and sliced almonds.
  2. Preheat oven 325 degrees.
  3. Spray nuts with cooking spray and liberally season with salt. Toss to coat.
  4. Bake for about 5-6 minutes until fragrant.

Topping: PB Drizzle

1 tbs powdered peanut butter (such as PB2 Brand)

1+ tbs water (add more for more drizzle consistency)

Green Smoothie Bowl

Standard

This is the perfect quick breakfast or snack (or even dessert!). You can premix the smoothie contents and keep in the fridge up to 3-4 days! So you may want to make triple. If you can find lemon infused olive oil go with that! It really makes the mix smooth and glossy. For extra “tropical” flavor, add in the coconut balsamic, but I have also made this without!

Servings: 1

Combine in a food processor:

  • Big handful fresh or 1/2 cup frozen spinach
  • 1/2 cup low fat or fat free cottage cheese
  • 1/2 +/- cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Quest Vanilla Milkshake)
  • 4 frozen peach slices
  • 1 tsp J. Olive Co. lemon olive oil or lemon extract
  • 1/2 tbs J. Olive Co. coconut balsamic (optional)

Toppings:

  • 1/2 small sliced banana
  • 1 kiwi sliced
  • 1 tbs unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tbs hemp seeds (You can find these at most grocery stores, even Walmart. Usually by the nuts and coconut flakes!)
