Two Smoothie Bowls!

Ah the smoothie bowl. A great alternative to the regular smoothie. Something I really like about putting the smoothie in a bowl is the toppings! It’s a really easy way to get even more health benefits depending on what you put on top. My favorites are fruits, nuts and seeds.

I use a NutriBullet for all of my blending. It works great for what I need it for. The NutriBullet can sometimes have a hard time blending these smoothie bowls if I don’t put enough liquid. In the recipes below, you’ll see that I have a range for the liquid. Use what your blender requires!

Spirulina Smoothie Bowl


This bowl might as well be called power smoothie bowl. Everything in it will give your body so many good nutrients and vitamins. Here are just a few examples:

Spirulina has so many health benefits. You only need it in small doses, it packs a powerful kick. It can help modulate the immune system, be a great source of protein, help boost iron levels and help alleviate allergies. Hemp seeds are a great source of essential fatty acids and contains all 20 amino acids, including the 9 our body cannot produce by itself. Chia seeds have a high amount of nutrients such as fiber, protein, calcium and magnesium in a small caloric amount.

You will need:

Smoothie:

  • 1-2 tsp spirulina powder
  • 1/3 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2-3 frozen bananas
  • 1/4-1/2 cup almond milk

Toppings:

To Do:

  1. In a blender, blend the frozen bananas and almond milk until an ice cream consistency. Add 1/4 cup almond milk at first, if the blender isn’t blending, then add a tablespoon at a time. You want the consistency to be thick. If you add too much almond milk, it can get liquid-y quick!
  2. Add the spirulina and blueberries and blend until its roughly a uniform color.
  3. Place smoothie mixture in a bowl and add toppings!
