Ingredients

  • ¼ cup cashew butter
  • 1 Tbsp melted virgin coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 heaping Tbsp cocoa powder

  3. Add the egg and vanilla and again blend until thoroughly combined.
  4. Add the coconut flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda and blend until thoroughly combined. Allow it to sit for a couple minutes while the coconut flour absorbs moisture and thickens the batter.

  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop your cookie dough onto the sheet with at least an inch of space around each cookie.
  7. Place the remaining chocolate chunks and macadamia nuts onto each cookie and sprinkle with sea salt.

Rootz Nutrition Paleo Protein Smoothie Bowl

rootz smoothie bowl 1

Okay you guys I used to have the hardest time when searching for a good protein powder. A lot of protein powders are just straight chemicals or seem good but then you read the ingredient label and you see some words that have like 40 letters in them and you’re just like huh? What exactly am I putting in my body?

Another common deterrent for me is when a protein powder has added sugars, contains dairy (like whey protein), or isn’t all natural. But then I came across Rootz Nutrition. I did some research on the company and basically it was founded by a guy who took up the Paleo diet, but quickly realized there were no pre or post workout supplements on the market that were Paleo-friendly. Since he was cross training daily, he wasn’t willing to give up that supplementation so he set off to create an all-natural, Paleo-friendly workout supplement.

And I am SO GLAD he did. I tried the pre and post workout supplements and not only did I hit several personal bests while lifting (and I usually don’t opt for a pre-workout supplement because I don’t like the jittery feeling it gives me, but no jitters after this guy, just straight natural energy), but both powders tasted DELICIOUS. Like, I cannot wait to have it again after my workout today. I’m motivating myself to lift hard again just so I can come home and make a protein smoothie bowl.

And just check out these ingredients. For the post-workout powder, it’s chocolate banana nut flavored and is made up of 4 different blends with some additional all-natural ingredients:

Protein Blend
Egg White Protein, Sacha Inchi Protein, Hemp Protein

Electrolyte Blend
Coconut, Banana

Superfood Blend
Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds, Maca Root, Bee Pollen, Acai, Goji Berries, Blueberries, Royal Jelly

Green Detox Blend
Spirulina, Chlorella, Kale, Spinach, Broccoli

Other Ingredients
Natural Chocolate Extract, Natural Vanilla Extract, Stevia Leaf, Cinnamon, Natural Sea Salt

IS THAT NOT AMAZING?! (And the ingredients are equally as amazing in the pre-workout too). So you’re loading up on crucial all-natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, AND protein! I definitely recommend. I’m a huge fan. And what I love about this smoothie bowl made using the post-workout protein powder is that it’s made with very basic ingredients so you get the full taste of the protein powder (which actually tastes GOOD). It’s not gummy or protein-tasting like other protein powders, it just tastes like chocolate banana nut. Exactly as advertised. So whether you’re looking to switch to a cleaner, nutrient-packed protein supplement or you don’t work out every day but think your body could use a little extra boost, I highly recommend Rootz!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup juice (for mine I made three different batches using homemade strawberry-apple, beet-apple, and orange)

  1. Heat your juice in a small saucepan until just before it boils.

  3. Whisk in your gelatin powder, 1 tablespoon at a time, and continue to stir while heating until it’s fully dissolved (this took about 8-10 minutes for me).
  4. Now you can either pour you gummies straight into the mold of your choice (make sure to grease it with some coconut oil if it isn’t silicon) or you could grease a glass baking dish with coconut oil and pour it all into that.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours until your gummies are fully solidified.
  6. Now you can either remove your gummies from the mold or if you poured them into a glass dish you can cut them into little cubes.
  7. Enjoy!
