Superfood Smoothie Buddha Bowl Thingies

Orange and White fruits accent this blue spirulina and nice cream smoothie bowl

 

Some of you may be aware that I am allergic to melons and strawberries. They’re easy enough to avoid but it means that getting a smoothie bowl at someplace like Jamba Juice or Nekter is out of the question. So I make them at home. This week I’ll share 3 smoothie bowl recipes so you can make your own at home.

A really good blender or food processor is a must for these recipes. I try to keep a good supply of mangos, dragonfruit, berries and bananas up in the freezer. As well as steel cut oats and coconut milk in the pantry and Greek style yogurt in the fridge, I frequently use these to make overnight oatmeal so they’re super handy to have on hand and perfect for smoothie bowls. Things like chia seeds, nuts, puffed rice and shredded coconut are also nice to keep around to add texture and extra fiber to the smoothie bowls. There are also any number of protein powders and supplements out there that you can also add if you choose. I’ve used blue spirulina, butterfly pea powder, matcha powder, and pea protein powder, but they aren’t necessary and I use them more for color than for their nutritional properties.
