Avocado, Chia, Baobab & Protein Smoothie Bowl

wp-1488446433993.jpg

I’ve come to the conclusion that if you want your smoothie bowl to be thick and creamy enough to pop other ingredients on top without losing them when they sink into the mixture, (can you tell this has been a long trial and error journey?!) ย you need to add half an avocado ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s the best thickening ingredient ๐Ÿ˜€ and it’s also DELICIOUS! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ingredients

(liquid measurements may vary depending on the size of your smoothie maker)

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 scoop protein powder – I usedย The Organic Protein Companyย protein
  • 1 tsp. baobab powder
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup almond milk

Directions

  1. Pop all the ingredients into your smoothie cup and blend using your smoothie maker
  2. Pour into a bowl
  3. Top with anything you like to give it some crunch ๐Ÿ˜€ย I used granola, freeze-dried strawberries and desiccated coconut

Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

Oaty Superfood & Pecan Smoothie Bowl

I do love a yummy smoothie bowl on a sunny morning ๐Ÿ™‚

The main reason I choose a smoothie bowl more often than a normal smoothie on it’s own these days is due to the fact that chewing our food is actually really important. Sounds silly, of course it’s important, but it’s not just a process we go through to breakย down ourย food into smaller pieces that we can then swallow. The whole digestive process actually begins in the mouth.

When chewing our food, we cover it in saliva which contains an enzyme (ptyalin)ย that begins the process of breaking down our food ready for it to be digested and this enzyme also helps us digest carbohydrates.

Chewing also brings the food to body temperature meaning that our digestive system doesn’t have to work as hard to convert the nutrients into energy.

That doesn’t mean a lovely refreshing smoothie is off the menu though, they will still appear every now and then but probably not as often as a smoothie bowl.

Which leads me nicely, onto this gorgeous superfood smoothie bowl recipe ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ingredients

  • Avocado – 1 small one or 1/2 a large one pp
  • Banana – 1 small one
  • Yogurt – 1 small pot or 2 tbsp. (I used a strawberry activia)
  • Almond milk – 1/2 cup to 1 cup depending on consistency
  • Oats – 1/2 cup
  • Spirulina powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Rosehip powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Milk thistle powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Frozen berries
  • Pecans
  • Beetroot qnola

Make it

  1. Pop the avo, banana, yogurt, almond milk, oats and powders into your smoothie cup and blend until smooth
  2. Pop the berries in a pan and heat until thawed
  3. Place the berries, qnola and pecans on top of your smoothie bowl
