As much as I love a plain bowl of granola and almond milk in the morning, I often switch this up with a more nutritious breakfast – a smoothie bowl.
Smoothies are my way of consuming fruits and vegetables I would rather not eat in their whole, non-blended form, so I figured I might aswell make a more filling bowl out of it.
1 banana (frozen)
Handful of blueberries (frozen)
1 kiwi (frozen)
1 tbsp 100% organic peanut butter
1-2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tbsp spirulina powder
1 scoop Form Nutrition chocolate peanut protein powder*
Plenish almond milk to blend
1 banana (ripe, for topping)
Cacao nibs OR 2 chopped squares Lindt 90% dark chocolate (topping)
Any other toppings you love

1. Chuck the banana, blueberries, kiwi, peanut butter, chia seeds and spirulina into a blender.
*[I sometimes add a scoop of protein powder if I want a little extra boost or if I’ve been exercising. It amplifies the nutty taste without making the mixture powdery – I love it!]
2. Add enough almond milk (or milk of your choice) to help the ingredients blend and achieve your preferred consistency
3. Blend away
4. Pour smoothie into a bowl
5. Cut the ripe banana into thin slices for topping, and pour on some cacao nibs
I’m fussy with food and usually leave it at that, but of course you can add whatever toppings you like.
I definitely want to try coconut flakes and mixed seeds, but you can also add a variety of berries or other sliced fruits if you prefer. Adapt the recipe in any way!
Smoothies (and bowls) are so nutritious, versatile, pretty much fool-proof, filling and refreshing.
Are you a smoothie person? What’s your go-to recipe? What’s your idea of a nutritious breakfast?
