3 Steps to Create Your Own


Since shakes and smoothie bowls are my go-to breakfast option, I have spent countless hours concocting new recipes and playing with ingredients so I never get bored.

Having a variety of plants in your breakfast increases the number of nutrients and is also empowering for the gut microbiome. 

Recently, I created my personal smoothie bar with an assortment of add-ons. Here are 3 tips to create your own smoothie bar to avoid flavor burnout!

1. Create a smoothie section in your fridge. I’ve designated the top shelf of my refrigerator for individual jars of chia seeds, broccoli sprouts, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds…. and so much more! And the freezer is stocked with a variety of frozen fruits. My favorites are mixed berries and blueberries.

2. Pre-Mix Ingredients. If you’re regularly adding walnuts and cacao nibs to your shakes, then pre-mix those ingredients together in one jar to save on space. 

3. Keep Recipes Saved on Your Phone! I keep the 21 Perfect Protein Shakes book saved on my phone so it’s handy and ready for easy reference. By the way, it’s free with all KS Wellness protein shake orders!  

As a BONUS…. 

Here are 20 optional toppings to keep your bowls and shakes interesting.

  1. Almonds (sliced)
  2. Almond butter (Unsweetened)
  3. Arugula
  4. Berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries) 
  5. Broccoli sprouts

With so much variety, you’ll want to have smoothies every day!
