Who isn’t a fan of smoothie bowls? You can get so creative that it’s impossible to get bored with them. The base is simple: just blend together some frozen bananas (this is key) and frozen fruit of your choice. This recipe’s highlight is beautiful blue spirulina – loaded with protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. For toppings, the sky’s the limit! Here, we’ve sprinkled on granola, hemp seeds and chia seeds for a little crunch, plus blueberries for an extra nutrition boost. Spoon in immediately, or tuck it the fridge to enjoy later.

In blender, combine 1 cup frozen bananas and berries; process on low until small chunks form.

Transfer mixture to bowl and refrigerate.
In blender, combine remaining bananas, vanilla, spirulina and a small amount of coconut milk. Blend on low, adding coconut milk 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

Note: No need to add sweetener, but if you’d like to do so, try one date or a teaspoon of monk fruit as healthy options.
