How to make a Smoothie Bowl
A smoothie bowl has the taste and similar texture of a smoothie drink, but with the added boost of super-healthy toppings and ingredients that make it slightly thicker and so easier to eat with a spoon.
Smoothie Bowl Ingredients
The most used toppings and ingredients for a smoothie bowl are: – Granola (Look for a crunchy wholefood almond based granola that is not loaded with sugar). We recommend Roasted Almond Crunch or Maple Nut Crunch Organic granola.
Next comes the superfoods and seeds: Linseed or Flax Seed, Chia Seeds, Black Sesame Seeds, Hemp Seeds, Chia Seeds, Pepitas, Sunflower Kernels, and Coconut.
For a boost in your libido and mood, use Cacao Nibs or Raw Cacao Powder, or better still Maca Root Powder.
Bee Pollen is an important superfood. Bee pollen is very high in nutrients, amino acids, vitamins, lipids and over 250 biologically active ingredients
Other important smoothie ingredients and convenient powdered, vegetables include: – Acai Berry Powder, Matcha Tea Powder. Also, Super greens powder like Kale Powder or Spinach Powder.
To boost your protein levels for vegetarians and vegans the key smoothie protein powder ingredients are: – Hemp Protein Powder, Pea Protein Powder and a Non-Vegan protein such as Whey Protein Powder Concentrate, or Raw Bee Pollen.
In addition to each of the above ingredients & toppings you have the standard smoothie drink ingredients of Fruit and vegetable powders such as: Carrot Powder, Beetroot Powder.
Also, fruits such as; Mixed Berries, Goji Berry, Banana Powder, Peach powder and Mango Powder that are just perfect both as natural sweeteners with high nutrient ingredients.
Nuts are another great topping. Best added chopped so that they blend with your smoothie meal and the best nuts for nutrition are Almonds, which is why we suggest them as the base for your healthy granola servings.
