It is HOT right now. And my favorite thing to eat in the summer when I am warm is watermelon. So I decided to make a refresher using NuNaturals Collagen! 🙂
The ingredients are SO simple, this is barely a recipe. The only thing you need to remember to do is freeze some watermelon and banana.
First, I blended the watermelon and banana with a splash of coconut milk. I continued to add the coconut milk until it was a smooth almost daiquiri-like texture. Then I added the collagen and blended it a little more so it would be evenly incorporated. Enjoy!
I am sharing some NuNaturals recipes on Mondays to start the week off on a healthy note. I do NOT like artificial sweeteners (aka Aspartame). They make food taste terrible. Stevia, on the other hand, is very tasty and comes from a plant! NuNaturals makes stevia products, which I have been buying for quite some time. My pals over at NuNaturals sent me some collagen to try, so I have been using it in several recipes.
This one is by far the prettiest.
I really enjoy the BRIGHT smoothies on Instagram. If you’re making recipes “for the ‘gram,” this one is for you. I purchased some Dragon Fruit puree from Whole Foods and it makes smoothies as bright as a highlighter! Perhaps more importantly, this was a delicious meal as well.
To be frank, I feel like I should be wearing organic and sustainable yoga clothes whilst drinking this out of a coconut shell. This smoothie bowl is next level perfection. I know you want to have one now, so I’ll share the deets.
Here is an overhead of the smoothie bowl plan:
This plan was amended slightly. The nuts were savory (I forgot they were spiced) so I did not use those. I had enough texture with the bee pollen, chia seeds, and fruit. I also decided to put some Mike’s Hot Honey on it. Why not, right? Anyways, here’s the recipe “as the chef intended” before those subs were made:
You can certainly add greens to this recipe to get more nutrients in, but that will dull the color of this smoothie. And if you’re going for a full-on Instagram picture lewk, skip the greens. Eat a salad later while you edit your pictures. 🙂
Upcoming recipes include an upgrade to a Starbucks drink using NuNaturals MCT powder and BAKING using NuNaturals syrups. Kinda pumped, not gonna lie.
