Superfood Smoothie Bowl
I pretty much have smoothies everyday for a quick meal and love to change them up every now and again depending on how I’m feeling and what’s in season. I love eating my smoothies with a spoon and make them thick, icy and creamy. I throw in lots of goodness such as fresh berries, leafy greens and protein that helps nourish my body and make me feel great. Hope you enjoy my delicious smoothie bowl as much as I do ! T:) x
What’s good about it:
Berries contain antioxidants called polyphenols, which are anti-inflammatory to the body and can promote optimum health + vitality. Chia helps to pump up the omega 3 fatty acid profile. Benefits of omega 3 include helping to lower cholesterol levels, reduce high blood pressure, improving symptoms of arthritis and improved mental health.
Bananas are a great source of potassium that helps to regulate muscle contraction and fluid balance. Leafy greens and superfoods are anti-inflammatory and help support immune function. Protein is considered by many to be the most important macronutrient for humans because of the numerous roles protein plays in the body. Whenever the body is growing, repairing or replacing tissue, proteins are involved. The main function of protein is to build and repair, as well as sustain muscle.

1 cup (125 g) frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon healthy chef superfood
1 teaspoon goji berries
1 teaspoon chia seeds
