Image 3Regardless of what you eat, most likely it will be on one of the trends list for 2019. Some of the major trends have ancient Biblical roots.

Here’s a wonderful recipe – a smoothie morphs into a smoothie bowl. Plant proteins are a healthful trend this year, as well. Can you tell which of the ingredients contain the plant proteins? One of seeds that contain protein has ancient Biblical roots….



  • 1 medium frozen banana (I freeze them whole in the skins or out)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk or favorite milk
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon honey or pure maple syrup (or more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup ice cubes

Topping ideas:

  • Banana slices
  • Berries
  • Shredded coconut
  • Pepitas
  • Chia seeds
  • Flax seeds
  • Walnuts or other nuts
  • Mini chocolate chips or shaved dark chocolate


Place the banana, milk, peanut butter, honey, vanilla and cocoa powder in a blender. Puree until smooth. Add ice and puree again until smooth. Pour into a bowl and sprinkle on toppings of your choice. Eat immediately.
