BL Smoothie: Everything You Need to Know

If you’ve been following along  for a while, then you know just how much I LOVE to start my mornings off with a BL smoothie {and if you’re new to BL- welcome! I’m so happy you’re here!}. BL smoothies are something I have been recommending to my clients and having myself for quite a while, so I wanted to share with all of you the secret behind why I love them and how you can make them for yourself! You guys, Chris even loves them & drinks them every morning so they’re husband approved too!

Here is a round up of some of my favorite indulgent recipes that I have featured on my Instagram {@BlissfullyLively}.

Mint Mojito Fruit Salad

I don’t think i’ve loved a fruit salad more in my life! This recipe mixes my love for refreshing mojito’s and all the fruits together. I thought this would be perfect for Mothers Day get togethers this weekend because honestly it’s so damn simple but everyone will love it. A mix of strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, fresh mint and a hint of lime. HEAVEN.


Easy Like Sunday Morning Crepes

Sweet & savory has always been my jam especially for breakfast. Every once in a while a sweet breakfast hits the spot and this weekend I was in the mood for just that. I whipped up these savory crepes with sweet berries and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.


Avocado Toast 3 Ways

BL Avocado Toast

In all seriousness you guys I have been extremely crushing on avocados lately more so than normal all thanks to a little coffee shop near me that sells avocado toast w/ poached eggs. I mean who would have thunk to put mashed avocados on bread with chia seeds and fucking poached egg and call it a day? These genius people did and changed my breakfast game forever.

So…instead of paying $9 for 1 slice of avocado toast I thought why not create my own and spice them up a bit. Three different ways giving people some insane avocado variety for whatever kind of mood they’re in. I added a vegetarian option, a protein packed option and a fruity option. All equally as delicious.

BL Avocado Toast 3 ways

I love avocado toast as a morning breakfast cause it keeps you full with the sprouted bread and healthy fats but also is something that’s quick and you can eat on the go.

There’s really no method to my avotoast madness, add smashed avocado to a toasted sprouted grain slice of bread, and top it with whatever flavors you’re craving. I would say make sure there’s a protein in there to keep you fuller longer but whatever floats your boat. Enjoy these selections!

Oatmeal Superfood Breakfast Bars

I finally tried out my Kitchen Aid Mixer this weekend and all dramatics aside my life will never be the same. I whipped up these delicious bars and it was such a breeze. 1 bowl, all the ingredients I needed and a glass of wine while it all mixed up.

This is what dreams are made of people.

Blissfully Lively Breakfast Bars

If you guys follow along on Instagram you know my love for my Kitchen Aid and how ecstatic I was to get it as a present for Christmas, Chris did sooo good. Serious time saver, and looks so darn cute in the kitchen.

This weekend I was meal prepping away after following some of my own advice from the dinner menu and realized I needed to prep something that would be easy to eat before a workout, or before I hop on the computer for the morning. I love making eggs first thing in the morning but sometimes that’s a bit too much work for this busy gal so hello ooey gooey breakfast bars that will fill me up with the added superfoods & are made with whole ingredients & zero added sweeteners.

These guys are loaded with chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, oatmeal, goji berries, cranberries & my absolute fav dark chocolate chips for a little pinch of sweetness. For warning these are sweetened only by the dark chocolate and apple sauce so they will be a bit on the thick side and subtly sweet.
