This delicious bowl of wild blueberry smoothie is packed with antioxidants and micronutrients. It is customizable and takes less than 10 minutes to make!

Check out my favorite blueberry smoothie bowl. I make this smoothie several times a week for breakfast. For me, the shakes are very easy to digest and I love that they hardly take long to make. Plus, it feels great to start my day with tons of antioxidants and micronutrients.

So what's the deal with a smoothie bowl? Why not just have a smoothie? 1. You can make them super thick and eat them with a spoon. It feels more like a meal than just a snack or drink. Much more satisfying. 2. One bowl equals more surface, which equals more space for all toppings!

Smoothie Bowl Ingredients

Let me briefly explain some of the ingredients and why I like to eat them almost every day:

  • Wild blueberries they are one of the fruits with the highest antioxidant content, are relatively low in sugar and have a delicious taste
  • Spinach It's also packed with nutrients like iron and vitamin A. You can't even taste it, I promise 🙂
  • Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory potency and adds black pepper helps your body absorb it better
  • Ground flax It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber
  • Ginger it's great for digestion and I love the taste
  • Cinnamon can lower blood sugar and it tastes great

In addition to spinach, I generally add more vegetables to my smoothie bowls. In general, some kind of soft frozen vegetable, like zucchini or squash. It's an easy way to sneak in more nutrients, and most of the time you can't even taste it. It also fills the smoothie without adding much extra sugar. For optimal digestion, steam vegetables before freezing.

Note: I tried adding frozen cauliflower once and you can definitely try that. I would not recommend

In terms of coverage, go crazy! Add what you want. I definitely recommend adding a healthy fat, like walnut butter, some coconut seeds or flakes. Or all three! Healthy fats are really important in helping the body absorb certain nutrients (1).

Fats also make smoothie more abundant and provide you with sustained energy. And they taste super delicious! My favorite healthy fats to top up smoothie bowls are almond butter, tahini, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, and cocoa beans.

I hope you enjoy this wild blueberry smoothie bowl!

This delicious bowl of wild blueberry smoothie is packed with antioxidants and micronutrients. It is customizable and takes less than 10 minutes to make!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup spinach

  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 3/4 cup frozen steamed squash (zucchini, butternut, delicata, or acorn)

  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries

  • 1/2 ″ piece fresh ginger root

  • 1/2 ″ piece fresh turmeric root

  • 1 pinch black pepper (helps your body absorb turmeric)

  • 1-2 tablespoon flaxseeds (sub hemp seeds)

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or any other spice you like)

Instructions

  1. Mix the spinach and almond milk first until all the spinach is completely mixed.

  2. Add the pumpkin and blueberries and mix again. If needed, add a little more liquid to make it smooth.

  3. Finally, add the ginger, turmeric, ground flax, and all spices, and blend until smooth.

  4. Pour into a bowl, add the ingredients you want and enjoy!

One more thing to keep in mind: Super cold drinks can be difficult for the digestive system. If frozen things affect you, you can use chilled blueberries / squash instead of frozen. Or you could let the smoothie melt a little before eating!
