    It’s finally starting to feel like Summer here in the UK and I’m getting excited about the thought of warmer nights, park days, a golden glow and Summer recipes. Another thing I’m excited about is smoothie bowls. In the Summer I tend to prefer a lighter breakfast instead of my usual porridge, so a smoothie bowl is perfect for that.

    A smoothie bowl is basically a thicker version of a regular smoothie, so instead of drinking it, you eat it with a spoon. I’m sure by now you’ve seen those beautiful smoothie bowl pictures on Instagram, showing off brightly coloured smoothie bowls with neatly arranged toppings. Not just a pretty picture, they are a great option for breakfast.

    I find smoothies and smoothie bowls are an easy way to pack protein and vegetables into my breakfast which can be difficult with a lot of breakfast options. A smoothie bowl is also a great alternative to ice cream or frozen yoghurt for when you fancy a sweet treat whilst still trying to eat healthily.

    There are so many possibilities with a smoothie bowl, so I encourage you to be creative and experiment with making your own recipes. Just be careful about how much fruit you put into your smoothie, especially if you’re topping it with fruit as well as this can greatly increase the amount of sugar in your smoothie bowl. I’d also stay away from using orange or apple juice as the liquid. Coconut water is also high in sugar, so I do not use this as a liquid if I’m including higher sugar fruits like pineapple and mango in my smoothie. Just be aware of the balance of ingredients you use and you’ll be fine.

    In this green smoothie bowl recipe I wanted to lower the sugar content and boost the nutritional profile so I used berries which are a lower sugar fruit and I added Bioglan Superfoods Green Boost powder, which is a blend of barleygrass, chlorella, kale, wheatgrass, spirulina and spinach. The Green Boost powder is a source of vitamin B12, iron, calcium and folic acid to help fight tiredness and fatigue and boost your energy levels.

    I used a vegan vanilla protein powder because I am trying to limit the amount of dairy in my diet after the results of my food intolerance test. If you are fine with dairy then a whey protein powder is absolutely fine to use instead.


    Let’s get to the recipe! I’d love to see the smoothie bowls that you create so please tag me in your photos, I am @SimplyCantara on both Instagram and Twitter. Have fun and be creative with your toppings.
