Smoothie bowls are perfect for the high energy lifestyles. They can be topped with whatever toppings you prefer to give you a unique experience each and every time.

Do you ever get that sluggish feeling in the afternoon and reach for yet another cup of coffee? Yeah, I get that way too, usually around 3pm. My shoulders start to lean forward and my eyes get heavy. If I don't prepare myself in advance of this 3 o'clock feeling, then I tend to reach for the caffeine or sugar. But those are only temporary fixes.

I've trained myself to reach for something wholesome and nutrition right before that sluggish feeling. Things like fruit, nuts, and nutrition bars help give me that last boost of energy needed to make it through the work day. So what would happen if I threw all these items together, like I do occasionally?

You guys, adding a nutrition bar to your smoothie bowl is life changing. Gone are the days of granola. Just grab your favorite flavor ZonePerfect® nutrition bar from Walmart, chop into little pieces, and crumble on top of your smoothie bowl.



Before we get carried away with all the delicious toppings that you can load your smoothie bowl with, let's make the smoothie portion.

For this tart and refreshing smoothie base, you will only need frozen raspberries and plain greek yogurt. Blend it all up until thick and smooth.

Simple, right?

Now is the hard part - selecting your favorite toppings. Luckily, you can choose whatever fits your mood that day. But don't forget the ZonePerfect® nutrition bar because they will add some much needed protein (no less than 10 grams per bar) to give you a nice boost of energy.

For this particular smoothie bowl, I chose chia seeds, almonds, cashews, blackberries, and ZonePerfect® nutrition bar in the fudge graham flavor.
