Classic Strawberry & Banana Smoothie... with a twist 

Smoothie bowls are great for breakfast and as a snack. Sometimes it's just nice to keep it simple make a classic smoothie, and have it on the go. Other times, it's nice to sit down and make a meal out of it. Smoothies are also a great way to add in extra nutrition for the day. 


  • 1 banana 
  • 1 cup of strawberries 
  • 1/4 cup cashews or almonds 
  • 1 cup water 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • Ice as needed 

*Blend ingredients together. 

Additional toppings: 

Mango, apples, berries, nuts, hemp hearts, flax meal, bee pollen, chia seeds 

*The reason that I like having additional fruit on top versus blended in is for additional texture and flavour burst.  It's easy to go through a phase of only smoothies in the morning and get sick of them and not want to drink them any more. The smoothie bowl option adds some variety to the morning. 


- If you are looking for additional fat and calories, consider adding avocado. It will make the smoothie extra creamy, so adjust the amount of water accordingly 

- Can also substitute coconut milk (full fat) for nuts and water 

- Also consider adding in 1/4 - 1/2 cup coconut oil for extra fat. But you may need to blend for additional time because ice will cool the coconut oil to a solid

More About Me and Sattva Recipes: 

What I have learned from the Sattva practice is to always reflect and ask "Why?" In February 2017, I moved from deep freeze Alberta winter to eternal summer in the Caribbean. At first, it felt amazing!! And then my body was like "wow, we're staying?". It was a bit of a shock to the system. My skin broke out, I had a tough time sleeping and my throat felt dry and scratchy. So, I decided to listen to my body and do a bit of a reset on my system by cleansing. I am very thankful for the support of  the Sattva Online community, as it has kept me grounded to my practice. My hope is to share my journey and creations with you and be a resource of information. What I have to offer is just a simple base of ingredients and directions . So remember to tune into your own taste and, texture preferences and be creative.
