Super Butter Smoothie Bowl

By Jaclyn -- @pushupsandpeanutbutter 
When I'm training for a race, the weekend always means one thing: the weekly long run. It's these runs that test both my physical and mental limits, as I gradually add mileage each week and build the endurance that I'll need for race day. Naturally, I spend many of those miles dreaming of my post-run feast! Some of my greatest recipe creations have been conjured up while hitting the pavement! As summer temperatures rise, I always find myself craving smoothie bowls. They are super refreshing and make the perfect post workout meal. Smoothie bowls have everything your body needs after a challenging run: protein to refuel your muscles, carbs to replenish your glycogen stores, and healthy fats (courtesy of Wild Friends' Super Butter) to keep you full. Here's the recipe for my favorite bowl:
Smoothie Bowl Base:
1 packet frozen acai or pitaya 
1/2 C frozen mixed berries
1/2 C frozen coconut meat
1/2 scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder
1 TBS Wild Friend's Peanut Cashew Super Butter
1/4 C-1/2 C almond milk
Toppings:
Sliced banana
Fresh berries
Granola
Shredded coconut
Spoonful of Wild Friend's Peanut Cashew Super Butter
 
Add all ingredients to a blender, pouring in 1/4 cup of almond milk to start. Blend on high speed until ingredients are combined into a smooth puree, adding more almond milk, as needed. Pour into a bowl and add your choice of toppings!
