Now that it is 45 degrees smoothie bowls are back in season. They are easy to make, which makes them the perfect breakfast but, this one is pretty interesting.
1. Cauliflower smoothie bowl
Recipe from www.onegreenplanet.org.
1 1/2 cups frozen cauliflower florets
1/4 cup frozen avocado
1 1/2 cups blueberries (not frozen)
2 tablespoons vegan vanilla protein powder
1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
1 heaped tablespoon almond or peanut butter
Toppings: hemp seeds, blueberries, almond or peanut butter drizzle, coconut flakes
Blend and add into a large bowl, serve and enjoy.
2. Wild Blueberry Smoothie
We all love the crunch of celery, but in a smoothie it does wonders! Slightly salty and a little bit tangy, it adds great anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. Paired with blueberry, this drink becomes a low glycemic, low calorie, power-packed drink you can enjoy any time of day. (As you can see I love blueberries.)
This recipe is from www.nutriliving.com.
1 Cup Spinach
½ Stalk Celery
½ Cup Wild Blueberries, frozen
½ Lime, juiced
½ Inch Ginger
¼ Teaspoon Turmeric
1 ½ Cups Coconut Water
Add all of the ingredients into your Tall Cup and extract for 30 seconds, or until smooth.
3. Berry Lettuce Smoothie
Now this smoothie, is something I personally tried. I love lettuce, and find it less stronger than spinach, but never would I have thought to put it in a smoothie until now.
