The base of most smoothie bowl recipes are starchy fruits such as bananas or mangoes. While these are healthy for our bodies, they do contain higher amounts of natural sugars which we process very quickly, so we feel hungry shortly after. When we lower carbohydrate intake for weight loss, protein and fats become a bigger source of fuel, and tend to keep us full longer! The base of this acai bowl is packed with healthy fats, fiber and protein, with no bananas in sight.
Spriulina is an amazing micro-algae that contains a rich source of plant-based amino acids (building blocks of protein), vitamins and minerals. It also gives this smoothie a beautiful blue-green color! Packed with protein, fiber and healthy carbohydrates, this smoothie will power your morning or make for an excellent muscle-building post-workout treat.
