Many of my clients look to me for ideas on quick, easy and nutritious meals. I love smoothie bowls because they’re easy to make, and a great way to get multiple servings of fruits and veggies in just one bowl. They’re great as a snack, but jam packed with so many nutrients, they can easily substitute a meal. And, since they are easily customizable, they’re great for the whole family to enjoy.

Tip: Hide leafy greens, such as spinach or kale, in your smoothie base to help picky eaters get essential nutrients, fibre and minerals.

Benefits of a few ingredients:

  • Beets - Beetroots have been linked to improving poor digestion by exciting the nerves in the intestines and enhancing the body's ability to digest food.

  • Bee Pollen - Bee pollen is loaded with a wide variety of antioxidants, among them flavonoids, carotenoids, quercetin, and glutathione. Antioxidants protect your body against potentially harmful molecules called free radicals.

  • Coconut Kefir - Coconut kefir contains more beneficial strains and organisms than dairy-based kefir. The probiotics found in this kefir also help restore your good flora which helps fight against pathogens and boosts overall immunity. Safe for those lactose intolerant.

Ingredients:

Smoothie base
 1 cup frozen raspberries
 ½ banana
 1 raw red beet
 1 tbsp fresh ginger
 2 handfuls of spinach
 ½ cup non-dairy milk (I used almond)
Optional Swirl
 1 tbsp coconut kefir
Toppers
 ½ sliced banana
 ½ fig
 A few sliced strawberries
 A sprinkle of pumpkin seeds
 A sprinkle of bee pollen
 A sprinkle of coconut shavings

Directions:

1

Roughly chop beet.

2

Add all smoothie base ingredients (except swirl) into a high-powered blender and mix until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as necessary.

3

Taste the mixture and see if the sweetness is to your liking. If you prefer it to be sweeter, feel free to add a little more fruit.

4

Pour into bowl.

5

To create the swirl effect, add a dollop of coconut kefir and move it around with your spoon in a circular direction.

6

Top with your favourite toppers. I topped mine with banana, strawberries, fig, pumpkin seeds, bee pollen and coconut shavings.
