2014-09 Smoothie Bowl- TXT2

How about switching things up and enjoying your breakfast smoothie in a bowl?

This gorgeous and good-for-you smoothie bowl is a great way to start  your morning. It’s packed with so many vitamins, micronutrients, antioxidants and more, you can’t help but feel invigorated for the rest of the day.

It’s loaded with fruit but also contains superfoods like maca, which is renowned for its endurance-boosting and hormone-balancing effects (1).

Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect.

Superfood Smoothie Bowl

First, there’s the tropical flavor of mango. Not only is this a refreshing ingredient, it’s also a powerful source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, polyphenols, and carotenoids – which can help boost your immune system, clear your skin, and help you lose weight.

Next up, raspberries. These fuzzy little red berries contain important phytonutrients and fiber, and have even been shown to be helpful when it comes to cardiovascular health (2).

I’ve also added in some superfood greens. Now, greens like spirulina and chlorella help alkalize your body, reducing inflammation-causing acidity. But the downside is that they also can taste kind of grassy, which is why I created my own pure source of greens, Energy Greens, which are organic, GMO-free, and delicious.

Adding a spicy and delicious hint of heat to this smoothie bowl, ginger is filled with anti-inflammatory compounds and might even be able to help with muscle soreness.

Bringing the power of healthy fats to this superfood smoothie bowl are hemp seeds, which also contain a complete panel of amino acids, building a perfect plant-based protein.

Add in some kiwi, mint, and optional stevia, and you’ll love this bowl of superfood goodness!

Make sure you prepare this just before you plan to eat it, because it’s best enjoyed fresh.
