Peaches and Cream Smoothie BowlsWhen
the warm weather hits, we swap a lot of our hot breakfast options for cold
breakfasts like these Peaches and Cream Smoothie Bowls! They are super easy to
make, packed with nutrients, and can be topped with whatever toppings you
enjoy. Or you can drink the smoothie in a glass without making it into a smoothie
bowl if you prefer- just add more milk (or milk substitute if not well
tolerated). 
VSL#3 Probiotic
As part of my morning breakfast routine, another important part is taking my probiotic with my gut-friendly breakfast so that I don’t forget to take them. My favorite high-potency probiotic lately is VSL#3®, which I am going to chat all about today. Why is taking care of your gut health so important you ask? Well, your digestive tract contains trillions of bacteria. Most bacteria are considered good bacteria—the kind that keep you healthy. But you also have bad bacteria. More bad bacteria can cause problems that lead to uncomfortable and even debilitating symptoms, as well as anxiety that comes from having to cope with those symptoms.
Your digestive health is linked to the overall health throughout your body so it’s important to keep it in tip top shape. That’s why I love VSL#3®. It’s so easy to incorporate into your daily routine. VSL#3® is an advanced probiotic option that provides multiple strains of bacteria needed to help restore the necessary amount of good bacteria in your digestive tract. More on that later.

How to Make Peaches and Cream Smoothie Bowls

These
smoothie bowls are crazy easy! I use ripe fresh peaches for the best flavor. A
benefit of using fresh peaches is that you can leave the skin on the peaches
which adds more fiber and vitamins to the smoothie. If you are using fresh
peaches, freeze them in slices the night before. Using peach slices that are
frozen gives you a thick smoothie bowl that can hold up lots of toppings.
Peaches are great for digestive health as well.
They have a soft texture, are lower in fiber than fresh
fruit, and are easy to digest and can help soothe an upset stomach and ease
diarrhea and gas.
This delicious fruit is
also packed with antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory
properties
which is even more good news for your gut health.

Next, add in vanilla Greek yogurt, protein powder of choice if you want (optional), milk of your choice (can use almond, oat, etc. too), cinnamon and a little vanilla. Blend until smooth. I like using a food processor for an awesome whipped texture, but a blender will work also.

Finally, dump your smoothie into a bowl and top it with your choice of toppings. Great choices are nuts like almonds, granola or cereal, more peach slices, and chia seeds. Use whatever you like and have on hand. My kids love their smoothies topped with Cheerios’s cereal because they get a little soft and go well with the smoothie.

Taking Your Probiotic with Your Breakfast

I have been
taking a probiotic for years for gut health and another thing I love about
VSL#3® is that this particular probiotic can be mixed right into your smoothie.
VSL#3® is available in
capsules
and
packets to fit whatever form and potency
you prefer. Pro tip: you can also open the capsules and mix it into any
cold,
non-carbonated liquid or food. VSL#3® is special because it is a high-potency
probiotic medical food to help improve gut health and for people with chronic
digestive issues such as ulcerative colitis or irritable bowel syndrome. 

VSL#3® is a specially formulated probiotic medical food that delivers
multiple strains of beneficial live bacteria to create a better microbial
balance which is so important for digestive health. Many other probiotics found
on the shelf are single strain probiotics however, VSL#3® Capsules (112.5
billion CFU) have about 10 times more bacteria than the leading commercially
sold OTC probiotic*and a diversity of 8 beneficial
bacteria strains.
It
is kept in the fridge to maintain potency and uses 8 different strains of
bacteria so that more good bacteria can survive the GI tract. No wonder it is
the #1 recommended high-potency probiotic brand by gastroenterologists!

Easy Peaches and Cream Smoothie Bowl

Peaches and Cream Smoothie Bowl Nutrition
Benefits

Peaches and
Cream Smoothie Bowls are a great way to start your day packed with nutritional
and beneficial gut-health ingredients! The Greek yogurt and milk have calcium
and protein. The peaches have fiber, potassium, and vitamins A and C. The
protein powder gives a boost of protein to keep you full for longer but is
optional. If you use chia seeds as a topping, that adds omega-3 fatty acids and
fiber. Finally, the cereal is a great way to add some whole grains in for
energy. And of course, VSL#3® high-potency probiotic packed with beneficial
bacteria for your gut health.
