  • This is your chance to add all the nutrient-dense, delicious toppings you can think of. Here’s some ideas:
    • Fruit - berries, bananas, apples, raisins, peaches, mangos, etc.
    • Nuts and seeds - peanuts, almonds, walnuts, pecans, chia, hemp, flax, etc.
    • Nut butter - peanut butter, almond butter, etc.

Top it with something creamy

  • My favorites are soy milk, almond milk, or coconut milk
