Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

This Blueberry Smoothie Bowl is filled with superfoods like maca powder, blueberries, MCT oil and chia seeds for a refreshing and healing start to your day. Make it in just 5 minutes for a quick and simple breakfast.


As I’ve mentioned earlier, I love a nutritious creamy smoothie bowl anytime of the day actually. I’m super excited in sharing this recipe because it is definetly very different from what you get in other blogs out there. I elaborated this recipe thinking on four elements:

  • Gut health;

  • Digestibility;

  • Muscle recovery;

  • Insuline regulation.

But before we get too ahead of ourselves, let’s meet the main ingredients responsible for these four elements:



Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Coconut Milk I use light coconut milk that comes in a can. However, if you don’t like coconut milk or would rather a lighter option, use any neutral flavored non-dairy milk of choice.

  • Banana – Make sure your bananas are frozen to ensure the right ice cream-like consistency. To freeze the bananas, peel and chop ripe bananas into 1″ pieces. Freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet. When frozen all the way through transfer the banana pieces to a ziplock bag.

  • Frozen Blueberries

  • Coconut Water – You can also use regular water or your favorite non-dairy milk

  • Kale – Fresh or frozen. Spinach would also work.

  • Superfood Add-ins – You can add a variety of superfoods for a healthy boost. A few of my favorites are Chia Seeds, Maca Powder, Ashwagandha Powder. These all have incredible benefits for your mood, energy, heart, and overall health.

  • Optional Toppings – Top your bowls with all the goods. I’m talking gluten-free paleo granola, fresh blueberries and strawberries, coconut, and chia seeds.



Tips

  • If your blender is not very powerful, you can use 4 regular bananas or add more milk. If you use frozen bananas, you should chop them and freeze overnight.

  • Use your favorite plant milk.

  • I love Medjool dates, but feel free to use another type of dates. If you can’t find them, use another dried fruit or any other sweetener (maple or agave syrup, coconut sugar, stevia, etc.).

  • Frozen blueberries are cheaper, but fresh blueberries taste better and are more nutritious. You can use other berries or even other fruits instead of the blueberries.

  • Chia seeds are a great source of omega 3, but other seeds will work too. I also use sesame and flax seeds.

  • You can keep the smoothie in the fridge for 2 or 3 days.
