Today I’ve got a simple twist on our beloved green smoothie, and one that you’re gonna want to savour and slow down for.
Move over mason jar, we’re busting out the good ole bowl and spoon for this one.
Green smoothie bowls are delicious and the possibilities for tasty variations are endless. They pack a ton of nutrients into one quick and easy meal or snack taking less than 5 minutes to make.
This green smoothie bowl features fresh local Colorado peaches. They’re sweet, succulent and scream summertime.
I’m also newly obsessed with chlorella! Chlorella is a nutrient-dense superfood, a micro-algae similar to spirulina that super charges this green smoothie bowl to superstar status. Probably best known for helping the body detoxify, chlorella can help rid the body of harmful toxins. Chlorella is also rich in chlorophyll and is a powerful supplement known to help strengthen the immune system.
Check out the Super Green Smoothie Bowl recipe below and be sure to leave me a comment. What green smoothie bowl variations do you love? Let’s share ideas.
With super green bowl love,
