Beat That Beet Smoothie Bowl

Let me tell you about my beautifully artistic and tasteful smoothie bowl. It took some effort the night before and a fair bit in the morning but here’s what it consisted of…

Ingredients:ย 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/4 cup red beet (cooked prior), 1/4 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup blackberries, 1/4 cup strawberries, 1 whole banana (1/2 blended in, 1/2 sliced on top), 1 scoop natural vanilla protein powder, pinch of kamut oats, pinch of chia seeds, pinch of sliced almonds, and pinch of toasted coconut flakes.

 

Instructions:ย Blend almond milk, beet, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, banana, and protein powder with ice. Place the smoothie into a bowl and top with oats, chia seeds, almonds, and coconut flakes. I also topped mine with sliced banana.

A little tidbit of info: kamut oats have a lower fat content than oatmeal and are high in vitamin B6 (important for metabolism) and contain your entire recommended daily intake of selenium and a large quantity of vitamin E (both have antioxidant properties).

This smoothie is not only a great way to wake up, but an excellent source of vitamins, protein and fibre.
