Before we get to that beautiful Superfood Smoothie Bowl, Happy Halloween! I hope you have a fun filled day with lots of cute trick or treaters.

So the day after you go trick or treating would be a good day to make today’s Superfood Smoothie Bowl! You know my love for smoothies runs deep.

I love everything about today’s recipe. 

This little bowl packs such a powerful punch as far as nutrition is concerned.  

It also tastes wonderful and is something you can get excited to wake up and eat.  

A smoothie bowl is an easy breakfast option that you can really tailor to your tastes.

Superfood Smoothie Bowl - cleaneating

In my house when I make a smoothie bowl like this I don’t get to eat the whole thing, so lately I have been doubling the recipe to share it with my kids.

 I am more than happy to do this since there is so much in this smoothie bowl that I want my kids to eat.  Spinach happens to be one thing that Will is picky about eating.  

He refuses to put that leafy green in his mouth, but little does he know that I am sneaking it into smoothies every time I make them.

This Superfood Smoothie Bowl also has blueberries and pomegranate seeds mixed in for a good dose of antioxidants.  

I used Stonyfield’s French Vanilla Yogurt  but you can easily use whatever yogurt you desire from plain to Greek yogurt.  

I also use a bit of milk {feel free to use your favorite milk option} and half a banana in the smoothie along with half a sliced banana as garnish.

Superfood Smoothie Bowl - healthy

Now to the fun toppings you see on top of that smoothie bowl.

I had the opportunity of trying Nature Path’s Pumpkin Flax Granola and the Qi’a Cranberry Almond product.

I had never had the Qi’a Cranberry Almond before but love using it to top yogurt, put in smoothies, on top of smoothie bowls and oatmeal.

Qi’a means energy and combines cranberries and sliced almonds with nutrient-rich, gluten free superfood ingredients like chia, hemp and buckwheat to provide Omega’6s, amino acids, protein and essential vitamins and minerals.

The Pumpkin Flax Granola is crunchy and mixes pumpkin and flax seeds to offer an impressive 450mg of Omega-3 fatty acids.  Both of these make the perfect smoothie bowl toppings!

My kids loved the crunch and I really like that they are putting nutritious foods into their little, growing bodies. And of course I like putting that good stuff in my body too.

Superfood Smoothie Bowl - good for you

Oh, and I also just love how beautiful this smoothie bowl looks, especially that vibrant purple color.

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Superfood Smoothie Bowl packs a big nutritious punch in one smoothie bowl. Pomegranate seeds, , bananas, blueberries, milk, yogurt and spinach are blended together and topped with granola, chia, hemp and buckwheat along with more fresh fruit to create a powerhouse breakfast or snack.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice {skim, almond, soy and coconut work great}
  • 3/4 cup yogurt of your choice {I used Stonyfield French Vanilla but you can use Greek Yogurt}
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds {I used frozen but you can use fresh}
  • 3/4 cup freshly spinach, loosely packed
  • 1 banana {half for the blender and half for garnish}

Garnish:

  • Sliced bananas
  • 1 Tablespoon Nature's Path Pumpkin Flax Granola {or granola of your choice}
  • 2 Tablespoons Nature's Path Qi'a Cranberry Almond

Instructions

  1. Put the milk, yogurt, blueberries, pomegranate seeds, spinach and half a banana in the blender in that order and blend until smooth. You want the smoothie to be creamy and thick so try to blend until you get to that consistency.
  2. Pour the smoothie into a bowl and garnish with sliced bananas, the Nature's Path Pumpkin Flax Granola and the Qi'a Cranberry Almond.

Notes

You can substitute fresh blueberries for the frozen but it might change the consistency a bit. I find that the frozen blueberries help to thicken up the smoothie bowl.

Peach Blueberry Smoothie Bowl - A Cedar Spoon

Tuesday 15th of January 2019

[…] Smoothie bowls, like this Peach Blueberry Smoothie Bowl,¬†are a fun twist on a traditional smoothie that you would drink in a glass. Do you want to know what I love most about them? The toppings you get to add after you are done making the smoothie bowl. I am such a toppings and garnish girl. When I make a bowl of soup I always think about what garnishes and toppings will go on top. If I make a bowl of turkey chili you better believe there will be cheese, fresh cilantro, chopped red onion and avocado. If I make a Moroccan Carrot Red Lentil Soup there will be fresh parsley, crushed red pepper and maybe even some crunchy roasted chickpeas. […]

This looks so enticing! I really should try a smoothie bowl as I always eat my smoothies with a spoon anyway. Great use of a yummy granola, too.

I used to only drink my smoothies but started seeing all of these smoothies so I gave it a try. I love it for breakfast because I can add granola and other things into it making it more hearty! Give it a try.
