This nutrient-dense Smoothie Breakfast Bowl is rich in health-boosting antioxidants and muscle-building protein and it tastes just like ice-cream. A smoothie bowl is an easy and healthy way to turn any smoothie into a nourishing and satisfying meal. It’s also a great wat to increase your natural antioxidant intake, which can boost your immunity and help you feel more energized. The key to boosting your antioxidant intake is variety, especially variety in color. Make your smoothie breakfast bowl using a different mix of fruits each day. You can also add leafy greens like spinach or romaine. Aim for two or three different colors each of fruits and veggies each day. Increasing your antioixidant intake can also help reduce exercise-induced oxidative stress and improve sports performance. That’s why smoothie bowls are excellent pre- and post-workout meals. The best part is that you can customize your smoothie bowl any way you like and create the perfect combi of ingredients to fuel your body before and after exercise. I add a scoop of my favorite plant-based protein powder for an extra protein boost but you can also mix in a spoonful of your favorite nut butter or a tablespoon of ground flax and hulled hemp seeds. I like to top my smoothie bowl with fresh fruit and muesli (I love this Wildberry Amaranth Muesli)
