I love my superfood breakfast! If I don’t have a big superfood smoothie, I have a smoothie bowl with toppings, or a chia bowl or something that contains plenty of yummy and healthy superfoods. I just need to get my superfoods everyday haha! I do not add any sweeteners such as dates, raw honey or maple syrup because I use fruits which add a natural sweetness. And when I use nuts and seeds, I always soak them overnight to reduce or eliminate enzyme inhibitors, improve nutrients absorption and facilitate digestion.
This superfood breakfast bowl is made with fresh almond milk (best if homemade; if not, get unsweetened almond milk), ripe banana (ripe bananas are the ones with brown spots), frozen mangoes and blueberries (no need for ice!), chia and hemp seeds (for healthy fats and proteins), raw cacao powder (for magnesium and antioxidants), coconut oil (for its healthy fats and all its amazing health properties), maca (Peruvian root vegetable that boosts energy and balances hormones), lucuma (Peruvian fruit that act as a low-glycemic sweetener and contain vitamins and minerals), bee pollen (enhances immunity and great source of proteins), cinnamon (to help balance blood sugar), and spinach (to add iron, protein and a touch of green!).
Toppings were soaked nuts and seeds (almonds and pumpkin seeds), goji berries (for its high antioxidant properties), coconut flakes (for color, texture and healthy fats), and more bee pollen (for its beautiful bright color!).
This smoothie is raw, gluten and soy-free. It’s super nutritious and will fill you up until lunch!
