I’m constantly devising new smoothie recipes, so its no wonder that my blog is full of smoothie variations (see my detox smoothie, my green tea smoothie, and my acai bowls). There are just endless combinations.
This summer smoothie bowl I have created with a focus on vitality, protein and fibre. The key ingredient here is the Cacao Macadamia Raw Slim & Tone Protein by Amazonia – this stuff has 7.5mg of iron and is 76% protein, which is fantastic for reducing fatigue and boosting energy.
This powder gives the smoothie bowl an irresistible nutty chocolate taste, as well as packing it with protein and iron for satiety and energy throughout the day.
In my bowl I have:
- 30g Slim & Tone Protein
- 1 cup baby spinach – a great source of vitamin C for immune health
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries – for fibre, to help your body digest the protein
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp psyllium husks – brilliant for digestion as high in fibre
- 1/4 cup water
- You can also add some extra nutrients such as the collagen and pro/pre-biotic powders from Vida Glow and The Beauty Chef.
Whip these up in a blender, and pour them into a bowl. I like to garnish with Carman’s fruit free muesli, seasonal fruits, healthy nut butter’s from Mayvers.
