Life demands a lot from us. We need extra support to give us energy to get through the day. And with so many options on the market, it can be really confusing to know what will truly give you energy in a healthy and sustained way. That’s why I’m so excited to share one of my energy secrets with you today!
One of my favorite ways to supercharge my day is by making a quick smoothie or smoothie bowl and tossing in high quality supplements to boost my energy and mood. This is perfect for teens, too! And I promise, it’s delicious! My Mocha Energy Smoothie Bowl is packed with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, and it will rev up your day like no other!
This yummy smoothie bowl is your on-the-go fuel without the heavy crash. It’ll help you meet a deadline, knock the socks off a workout, or just power through the day.
I’ve carefully selected some powerhouse supplements to add to this smoothie bowl. They are totally optional – – it will still taste great and have lots of nutritional value without them. But let me tell you, if you give them a try, you’ll be hooked by both the delicious flavor and how you feel!
So many protein powders have seriously questionable ingredients like artificial or “natural flavors”, synthetic vitamins, and harsh stimulants. Others have high doses of caffeine… sure to leave you a heart-pounding, jittery mess. Truvani created a yummy blend of muscle-supporting protein and MCT oil with adaptogens, and just the right dose of energizing organic coffee. This provides a calm, clean energy so you can stay on track without the jitters or crash or cravings.
Next comes greens powder. Please know that not all green powders are the same. And some are not even worth paying money for because they could upset your stomach more than they could benefit you. Plus, many taste gross! I have searched high and low for the perfect greens powder to be the nutritional power house you deserve.
I love PaleoValley Organic SuperGreens because it’s been created specifically so that your body can effectively absorb and utilize the superfood ingredients it boasts. This is not true for most green powders because they’re made with grasses like barley grass and oat grass that are rough on your gut and many have cheap, synthetic vitamins that your body cannot easily absorb or utilize.
PaleoValley’s Organic Supergreens are carefully crafted with 23 antioxidant-rich superfoods like spirulina, parsley, cauliflower, and broccoli sprouts. A serving of this greens powder helps ensure that you’re eating a diverse nutrient-rich diet to support your gut. And I promise, you won’t taste it when it’s blended in this delicious mocha smoothie bowl!
Next up is Truvani’s Marine Collagen powder. Again, all of the supplements are optional in this recipe. You can decide what benefits you’re looking for and go from there.
I love this collagen because it supports my bones, joints, skin, hair, and nails. It also has additional anti-aging benefits of antioxidants that support against free radicals in the body. It’s super easy to blend into a smoothie or smoothie bowl, or you can also add it to your morning tea or cold-pressed juice.
There’s three reasons I choose Truvani’s Marine Collagen as opposed to a lot of the beef or cow based collagen powders.
- The collagen in the skin of fish is similar to that of our human skin so it’s been shown to have great anti-aging benefits.
- Truvani’s collagen is treated with a non-GMO, food-grade enzyme making it easy to digest and allowing the amino acids to get to where they need to in your body. Many other collagens are treated with solvents and chemicals – gross!
- Truvani tests each ingredient and final product for heavy metals. This is a crucial step that most supplement companies are not doing. I want to know what I’m putting into my body. And I have a right to know. Truvani makes that possible.
So that’s the scoop on what makes this smoothie bowl such a nutritional powerhouse. But don’t just take my word for it. Give it a try! Here’s my mocha energy smoothie bowl recipe so you can make this yourself at home.
