Summer Skies Smoothie Bowl

This Smoothie Bowl recipe is a creamy and smooth anti-oxidant ‘meal-in-a-bowl’ that features spirulina, an incredible superfood with amazing health properties.
Perhaps you have seen photos of vibrant blue smoothie bowls in your Instagram feed and wondered, “What is it that gives them that hue?”
In this instance, the answer is blue spirulina — a fresh water blue-green algae that’s been harvested from lakes for thousands of years. About 60 percent protein by weight, blue spirulina is richer in beta-carotene than carrots and has an abundance of nutrients, including vitamin K and iron.
Research suggests that a daily dose of spirulina can help improve brain function and digestion, lower serum (total blood) cholesterol, reduce inflammation and neutralizes free radicals that cause premature signs of aging. and more.
Blue Spirulina, a well-known antioxidant superfood, is the magic ingredient that makes any food look Instagramable (#trendy). This intense deep blue pigment is known as phycocyanin and is extracted from spirulina (blue-green algae).
It is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, iron, carotenoids and antioxidants and helps protect cells from damage. It is freeze dried to preserve its natural colour and nutrients.
You can get creative and add this beautiful nature product to literally anything for a heavenly nutritional boost and some epic blue instaworthy pictures!
You can add it to water, juices, smoothies, breakfast food, baked food, sweets, yoghurts, cereals or any other foods. For light blue shades, use just a pinch and for a more brilliant blue, use up to the full teaspoon or more.
Its known to have high nutritional value and boost the immune system, increase metabolism and improve digestion! Contains an abundance of B vitamins which can enhance energy levels.
Who knew algae could be so wonderful?
This stunning looking, healthy smoothie is creamy and decadent bursting with flavor and full of healthy fats. It sure is a good way of incorporating more good stuff into your diet.
I love making healthy smoothies, it’s a great way of loading with super healthy ingredients full of benefits while enjoying a refreshing drink.
This recipe is like a piece of art to look at…plus its just oh so healthy and rejuvenating!
