Layered Berry Smoothie

layered berry smoothie

Layered smoothies take extra time, but they are so worth it! My family has been working out a ton this weekend (tennis tournament, hiking, swimming, running and golf) so we decided to make these Layered Berry Smoothie just in time for the Memorial Day holiday. The best way to make these, so the flavors don’t run into each other is to prepare each flavor at a time, and put each flavor in the freezer until ready to layer.

These layered smoothies are so healthy with fresh strawberries, blueberries and bananas. They are also easy to prepare, taste fresh, are filling and are good for you. Feel free to use your favorite milk, and if you can’t have dairy, feel free to substitute coconut water.

Yes, I am at it again with this Blueberry Smoothie Bowl perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. I made a banana and blueberry smoothie, but wanted more so I added flaxseed, chia seeds, milk, and protein powder. I prefer to enjoy smoothies with a spoon these days so I topped it with some of my favorite healthy toppings.

Health benefits of Blueberries: Blueberries offer many nutritional benefits. They are packed with Vitamin C, fiber, full of antioxidants and a good source of manganese (which is important in bone health). To find out the health benefits of blueberries see

Health Benefits of Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber at 10 grams per ounce (about 2 tablespoons). New research suggests that including chia seeds in your diet may help improve cardiovascular risk factors such as lowering cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure. It’s said that the amounts of omega 3′s can also work reduce symptoms of depression and increase brain function. A one-ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains 139 calories, 11 grams of fiber, four grams of protein and 9 grams of fat, as well as calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, potassium and B vitamins.

Health Benefits of Flaxseeds: Studies have suggested that flaxseed can also help lower the risk of diabetes, heart disease  stroke, caner and post-menopausal symptoms. Flaxseed contains high levels of fiber and Omega 3 fatty acids. Just two tablespoons of ground flaxseed contain more than 140 percent daily value of the inflammation-reducing Omega 3 fatty acids and more lignans than any other plant food. One tablespoon of flaxseed contains 55 calories, three grams of carbohydrates, 2.8 grams of fiber, 1.9 grams of protein and 4.3 grams of fat. See more about seeds in my article on Fitness Republic.

Berry Yogurt Bowl

Smoothie Bowl

Are you burned out on your everyday breakfast routine? I am. I have been trying to change up my morning routine such as drinking warm lemon water before my cup of coffee, drinking more water and eating a healthier breakfast other than a nutritional bar. This Berry Yogurt Bowl starts with nonfat Greek yogurt (plain, vanilla or  you favorite flavor), fruit of your choice and your favorite seeds and nuts. This can also be made as a smoothie bowl recipe using my recipe for 3 Ingredient Banana Smoothie or Berry Peach Smoothie as the base and then top with the remaining ingredients. This recipe is fabulous for breakfast or even afternoon snack.
