Paleo Superfood Smoothie Bowl

This Paleo Superfood Smoothie bowl is my go to  recipe when I need to break out of a run of Rise & Shine smoothies, which I normally make in the mornings. While

I love the Rise & Shine, when you drink it 5 days a week sometimes you need to mix it up. This is a recipe for 2 and it’s the perfect way to remix your morning. You can add a some extra coconut milk to the recipe and drink it like a traditional smoothie or use just enough to make your bowl and eat it like a cold soup.  A cold fruit soup that you blend just like a smoothie. It is a smoothie, but one so thick and delicious it is worth eating with a spoon. Moreover, it’s not just thick and satisfying, but LOADED with antioxidants.

I like to call it the Justice League Soup because the color and power of the foods involved display great, bright colors, like superheroes do. It is a combination of both, fruits and vegetables, that will give you the servings per day that you need without having to eat a salad, or stick an apple in your mouth. You can top the smoothie with whatever you like. I like to add various berries (including goji berries), bee pollen, nuts and/or seeds; whatever I have on hand.

For this recipe check out what you need from a specialty store, such as Thrive Market or Trader Joes or any other health food store:

  • Acai powder (I like this brand) 
  • Freeze-dried fruit (optional) or fresh fruit, if you choose
  • Raw honey

The technology that you will need will be:

Blender

Refrigerator

Bowls

Must include:

Ice cubes- So do not start until you are sure you have those–or else you will not be very happy. You will need about 4-6 cubes.

Grocery items:

1 cup of mixed, fresh or frozen berries (I am using cranberries, strawberries, blueberries, and goji berries)

Coconut milk  (just enough to humidify the blend, increase this if you want a more traditional smoothie texture)

1 tbsp almond butter

¼ raw honey (optional, to taste)

1 cup of chopped spinach

Acai powder (just a teaspoon)

Procedure:

Mix all ingredients until it all gets smooth. The coconut milk and raw honey are for you to flavor and wet the soup. Add slowly, and keep tasking to make sure it is reaching your desired consistency.

Remember that this is supposed to be a soup. Do not let it get too icy, or too milky. Pulp is what you are looking for, like a creamy fruit paste to be enjoyed.

Alternatives:  

  • Add avocado to the ingredients for more nutrients, flavor, smoothness, and for the good fats it brings.
  • Add pomegranate juice to the ingredients
  • Top with coconut flakes, almonds, and bee pollen.
  • Slice avocado on top of the soup to make it extra savory.
  • Acai powder is mainly for flavoring and to add nutritional value. It is, however, optional

This is meant to be a beautiful concoction that will have a beautiful, deep purple or red color.

Practice the decorating by keeping the slices of fruit, almonds, dried fruit, or even avocado, toward the center of the bowl. Enjoy!
