We love smoothie bowls, but sometimes they have wayyyyyy too much sugar. Between sweetened granola, honey and yogurt, many “healthy” smoothie bowls can have upwards of 70 grams of sugar!
So here’s an alternative recipe for a delicious bowl, still bursting with flavor and color but low in sugar! Blueberries are low in sugar and rich in antioxidants, so they’re the main fruit in our recipe. Beets taste earthy and they're pink and WE LOVE THEM IN EVERYTHING. Is that weird? Maybe. But they’re a great source of vitamin C and fiber, so.... try this one out!
Blend 1 cup frozen blueberries, 1 cup of kale, 1/2 a raw beet (chopped up), juice from 1/2 lemon, 1 date for sweetness, a bit of raw ginger, 1 tbsp of flaxseed, 1/2 cup of your favorite milk, and 2 tbsp of nut butter until smooth. Top with coconut, chia seeds, strawberry slices, and enjoy!
As a side note, this bowl has a more grainy texture because of the beets. If you want, try putting a bit of greek yogurt in there to smooth things out!
