There are plenty of nutritional benefits to yogurt and smoothie bowls. The key is not to over do it. No one needs to consume 10 servings of fruit for breakfast. Choose small amounts of various fruits, nuts, seeds, and powders to enhance your base.
If you don't already use Spirulina, I advise you start. We just do not get enough sea algae in our day to day diets without it. The bright, blue-green color is super natural and supplies loads of chlorophyll and phytonutrients.
Ingredients: (for 1)
+ 6oz Greek Yogurt, plain ( I like Icelandic varieties)
+ 1/2 tbsp Spirulina powder
+ 2 tbsp Buckwheat, soaked
+ 2 tbsp Almonds (preferably sprouted)
+ 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
+ 2 tbsp Coconut, unsw/shredded
+ 1/2 Banana
+ 1/2 Kiwi
Stir together the Spirulina powder and yogurt until well mixed. Place all ingredients in a bowl (arranged in a pretty way) and ENJOY!
Always be sure to choose a quality yogurt. Many claiming to be plain are still loaded with preservatives and extra junk. I love the Icelandic Skyr variety. It is pure, thick and flavorful.
