Pink Bubblegum Smoothie Bowl: Fight Sugar Cravings & Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth!

Eat, Food + Nutrition, RecipesErin Stanczyk2 Comments

Be Sweet To Your Sweet Tooth

When you’re craving something sweet, that’s your body saying feed me sugar! We don’t have to feel guilty about that, we just have to feed it the right kind of sugar! Fruits in their natural, whole food state, or chock full of fiber, which helps to slow the effects of sugar in the bloodstream, and they’re also loaded with other nutrients that our bodies thrive off of! This sweet treat will hit the spot, without any refined sugar, dairy, or anything else inflammatory that traditional ice cream and desserts contain!

Pleasing to the palate & a surprise for the eyes

The Original Juicy Fruit

This Bubblegum Bowl has two distinct features—it’s flavor and its color! Jack fruit is said to be where the classic Juicy Fruit bubblegum flavor originated from. Fact or fiction, this tropical fruit totally tastes like a mouthful of my chewy childhood favorite! Jack fruit is ripe with nutrients, including vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium, and what makes it unique amongst the fruits is its higher than normal protein content, with 3g per cup! Fun fact: some vegetarians and vegans use jack fruit as a meat substitute, due to its texture, which is similar to that of shredded meat—think: pulled jack fruit sandwiches (it’s a real thing)!

Clean Fuel

The hubs and I have been making this 6-ingredient smoothie combo on repeat as of late, and it makes for the perfect pre-workout, post-workout, breakfast, or dessert—it’s amazing anytime of day! We always add a scoop of our long-time favorite, SunWarrior Vanilla Warrior Blend protein powder, because it helps to keep us fueled!

Think Pink

Pitaya, also known as dragon fruit, is known for its vibrant pink hue, and can transform any smoothie or dish from blah to beautiful. This fruit has a mild flavor and a texture similar to that of kiwi, due to its tiny, edible, crunchy black seeds inside. Thanks to its antioxidant flavonoids, dragon fruit has been linked to better brain health and a reduced risk for heart disease!

Treat Yourself

Don’t forget to treat yourself in other ways besides just what’s on your plate! Make it a goal for the next 30 days, to treat yourself in some way, small or large, everyday! I’m thinking…an at home spa bath one night, a 5-minute morning meditation one day, and maybe a dressy date night…you get the idea! Make a list and start checking it off—ready, set, GO!

Sunshine In A Glass

I don't know about you, but as soon as August hits, I begin to feel a little blue about summer coming to an end. Eating a plant-based diet can greatly improve our health and elevate our mood, especially when we eat (and drink) the rainbow!

This juice recipe is literally sunshine in a glass that you can enjoy anytime you need some extra light in your life! And on that note, it will make you feel lighter!

The Juice Is Ideal For:

  • Fighting inflammation
  • Improved digestion
  • Beating belly bloat
  • Detoxing heavy metals
  • Boosting the immune system
  • Giving your skin a healthy glow
  • Energizing + invigorating

Lighten Up & Loosen Up

Digestion

Thanks to a healthy dose of ginger root and a touch of celery, this juice is fantastic for digestion, which equates to reduced belly bloating and regular elimination.

Inflammation

This juice also boasts a bounty of anti-inflammatory benefits, due to the powerful effects of turmeric root, and the curcumin it contains. Pineapple is another commonly overlooked anti-inflammatory that contains a potent enzyme called bromelain, that's great for muscle recovery and repair

Detoxification

Another overlooked fruit with powerful benefits when juiced in the Granny Smith apple. This variety is desirable for juicing, because the more tart the apple, the more malic acid it contains. Malic acid stimulates the metabolism and also helps to detox heavy metals from the body.

Immunity

On top of the anti-bloating and anti-inflammatory benefits, this Liquid Gold juice also contains a whopping dose of Vitamin C to keep your skin and immune system in check. Thank you, citrus!

Need a little light in your life? This sunshine in a glass will brighten your day and lighten your load. Liquid Gold is fantastic for optimal digestion, glowing skin, boosting the immune system, and it also boasts a bounty of anti-inflammatory benefits. Drink up first thing in the morning on an empty stomach for the most bang for your buck! 

raw vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, low-fat, energizing + rainbow-licious

time: 10 min // serves: 1-2

ingredients:

  • 8-12oz fresh-squeezed orange juice (about 5 oranges)
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 2-3 cups pineapple
  • 1 large knob of ginger
  • 1 chunk of turmeric

method:

  1. Juice oranges using a citrus juicer and set aside.
  2. Cut other ingredients into chunks and place into juicer. Start with ginger and turmeric root so the juicier ingredients will flush them through completely.
  3. Pour juice from juicer plus orange juice into fine mesh strainer to eliminate any extra pulp, for an extra smooth and sweet finished product.

notes:

  • If you do not own a juicer, you can also blend all ingredients and strain with a fine mesh strainer.
  • Will last in refrigerator for 24-48 hours in an airtight container, but tastiest and most nutritious when fresh.

Juicing 101

    The Juice Is Worth The Squeeze

    If you're looking to amp up your health, juicing is a great way to go! There are tons of juicers of varying price ranges on the market, but the quality of your juicer directly impacts the quality and nutritional value of your juice!

    An investment in quality is an investment in your health and happiness!

    My new Omega NC900 has definitely made the juice worth the squeeze! This super quiet motor, slow masticating, dual-stage extraction juicer comes with adjustable settings depending on what type of recipe you're making. Due to these features, you'll get maximum extraction, it will not damage your produce via grinding and gnashing, and it reduces oxidation, significantly! All of this jargon essentially means you'll get more juice for your squeeze, and it'll be less bubbly, more nutrient dense, and more flavorful!

    You can use this juicer for:

    • Fruits & veggies
    • Citrus
    • Greens
    • Wheatgrass
    • Nut milks
    • Nut butters
    • Pastas
    • and even Baby food! (good news for me)! ;)

    Be sure to look into my 3-Day Juice Feast Detox Guide--it's the perfect way to cleanse, reset, and re-energize your body!
