So what is the hype about putting our beloved breakfast smoothie in a bowl instead of consuming it on the go?
Breakfast bowls have been trending for a while now, and we don’t seem to stop loving them. It’s probably because it’s that perfectly balanced healthy breakfast option providing your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs and pleasing your tastebuds with the delicious flavors.
So start your morning off right with these scoopable treats, topped with all sorts of healthy goodies, like fruits, chia seeds, berries, and nuts. So many vitamins packed into one bowl! What can be a better option for starting a productive day?
Many of our favorite smoothie bowl recipes already contain powerful, healthy superfoods as their main ingredient. But in case you want to boost your smoothie even more, consider adding some of these amazingly healthy and delicious ingredients.
Acai is a powerful antioxidant straight from the Amazon. They are legendary for their high oxygen radical absorption capacity, making them one of the most potent antioxidants in the food world.
They are also rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, and E, plus loaded with essential minerals like magnesium, calcium, and zink.
You can use acai berry powder to boost any smoothie.
Another antioxidant powerhouse, Cacao, is one of the best natural iron, potassium, and magnesium sources.
Make sure to choose non-processed cacao powder and enjoy all the health benefits and the rich chocolatey taste it provides.
Just two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 20% of your daily calcium and 30% of your daily magnesium! Not to mention chia is an excellent source of protein and fiber.
It is also a great natural anti-inflammatory and should be your go-to superfood for omega-3 fatty acids.
You can both blend it into your smoothies or just sprinkle some chia on top and rip the benefits.
Spinach, kale, or swiss chard can be a great source of vitamins and minerals. They taste surprisingly delicious and refreshing blended with berries or pineapple and are so low in calories!
Ginger is a fantastic immune booster we often forget about. It goes well with almost any ingredient and adds a great refreshing kick to smoothies.
On top of that, it’s a great anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Fresh or powdered ginger should be included in everyone’s diet, especially during the colder season.
