As the flowers start to bloom and the sun starts to shine, we all feel the urge to detox and cleanse ourselves from the long winter hibernation. But let’s be honest, sometimes the only thing we feel like detoxing from is our own laziness. Don’t worry, you’re not alone! In this blog post, I’ll give you some tips on how to stay motivated during a spring detox challenge and even include a delicious vegan berry smoothie bowl recipe to help you along the way.
First and foremost, it’s important to set realistic goals for yourself. Don’t try to completely overhaul your lifestyle overnight. Start with small changes, like swapping out your morning coffee for green tea or going for a walk every day after dinner. As you start to see progress, you’ll naturally feel more motivated to keep going.
Another helpful tip is to find a buddy to join you on your detox journey. Having someone to hold you accountable and cheer you on can make all the difference. Plus, you can bond over your mutual love of kale and avocado toast.
Now, let’s get to the good stuff: the recipe. This vegan berry smoothie bowl is not only delicious but it’s also packed with antioxidants and nutrients to help you feel your best.
Vegan Berry Smoothie Bowl Recipe:
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- Toppings of your choice (we recommend sliced banana, sliced almonds, and a drizzle of honey)
- Blend the frozen mixed berries, banana, almond milk, chia seeds, and maple syrup together in a blender until smooth.
- Pour the mixture into a bowl and add your desired toppings.
- Enjoy your delicious and nutritious vegan berry smoothie bowl!
Finally, don’t forget to share your progress and accomplishments on social media. It’s a great way to hold yourself accountable and inspire others going through a similar journey.
