I’m going to be honest, I have an obsession with blue smoothie bowls.
Its some combination of the dreamy color, the creaminess of the bowl, and the mystery behind the flavor. Anyone else totally buying into this craze?
Blue spiralina—the ingredient that gives our insta-worthy bowls that incredible color, is actually an awesome ingredient! Spirulina is extremely high in nutrients, vitamins, and minerals—making it one of the most nutrient-dense foods on earth.
Pair the beautiful blue spirulina with naturally sweet banana, fuel-packed sweet potato, and add a splash of vanilla for extra flavor!
Here are a few things I love about this recipe:
First, my blue vanilla smoothie bowl is packed with nutrients—from potassium-rich banana, to the incredible blue spirulina, to simple, yet vitamin-rich cauliflower. Second, this bowl is simple + ready for your creative touch—so experiment with new add-ins and toppings! Finally, the recipe is super basic! With only 7 ingredients used in the base of this bowl, it is fast to whip up and you won’t have a big mess in your kitchen after doing so!
