Superfood Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie bowls are my favorite, one of my go-to’s, and a great way to sneak in fruits and vegetables in one meal. They are so easy and take less than 5 minutes to prepare. Spice up a classic smoothie by adding lots of fun toppings to each of your bowls.

I like my smoothies extra thick, creamy, and packed with flavor like a frozen treat, so it is easier for me to eat it in a bowl with a spoon. Plus, I love getting creative with toppings!

The fruit and other foods I add on top of my smoothie bowls add a lot of flavor. These bowls are also more filling than a typical smoothie- I like having something to chew on and eat with a utensil, rather than just drinking it from a cup. These recipes can also be applied to smoothies in a to-go cup if you need a pick-me-up on the go!

A refreshing smoothie bowl is the perfect way to start the day, enjoy after a great workout, or just have as a snack!

These recipes are also packed with vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, healthy carbs and fats, and protein.

* Adding cauliflower to the smoothie adds volume and nutrients with little to no taste. Frozen cauli makes the smoothie creamier; while packing in vitamin C, vitamin K, the B vitamins,  and acts as a detoxifier to our bodies and helps with inflammation.

**Spinach is packed with antioxidants and can help reduce inflammation in the body!

*** Chia seeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, and help protect the body from free radicals, aging, and cancer.

**** Maca is a natural mood booster and stress reliever. It is also a good source of B vitamins, calcium, zinc, and iron.

***** Ginger aids in digestion, boosts immune function, and fights cancer

******Beets are rich in antioxidants,potassium, manganese, and folate; are great for liver and heart health; and boost energy levels and metabolism.

*******I have recently started using collagen peptides in my smoothies because it adds ample amounts of protein and collagen with no taste. I have really seen a difference in the strength of my nails and hair, in my skin, and even my joints.
