More than a Smoothie: Blueberry Bliss Smoothie Bowl. {Recipe}

Smoothies have been all the rage for some time, and I have indulged in my fair share of them.

Not only am I able to get a good dose of fruit, vegetable, and get-up-and-go in one hit—I get to experiment with different textures and tastes.

Lately, I have started making myself a smoothie bowl for breakfast and lunch. A smoothie bowl is a denser version of a smoothie that I can eat with a spoon. And, as I enjoy the act of sitting down to eat, as opposed to sipping through a straw, it has quickly become my favourite thing to make.

The other cool thing about a smoothie bowl is: it has no real limits. The combinations I create are only limited by my imagination…or pantry ingredients.

The secret to a healthy smoothie bowl is to include at least one of each of the following key ingredients: vegetables, fruit, protein, superfood, liquid, and sweetener.

Here is a recipe for a Blueberry Bliss smoothie bowl I recently concocted:

You’ll need:

Handful of baby spinach

One medium-sized beetroot (cooked or raw)

Half a cup of frozen blueberries. (The frozen component helps the smoothie achieve a thicker consistency)

3 large strawberries (preferably frozen)

1 tablespoon cashew (or other nut) butter

2 teaspoons matcha green tea powder

2 cups coconut Water

1 tablespoon honey

Toppings:

2 tablespoons chia seeds

1 tablespoon pepitas

Handful of fresh or frozen berries

2 tablespoons granola

Method:

Blend all the ingredients (except toppings) in a blender until smooth.

Pour into a bowl and sprinkle on your toppings.

Remember that the consistency of this type of smoothie is like a porridge. If you find your smoothie is a little runny, it can be thickened with crushed ice cubes or rolled oats.

Enjoy!
