I like to call this smoothie beauty smoothie bowl because it’s literally an inside out beautifying treatment for your skin.
As you might already know berries are one of the foods with the highest concentration of antioxidants , essential to fight free radicals and to prevent premature ageing. Love Arctic Fresh Blackcurrant powder provides with extra antioxidants, Vitamin C, K & E making this bowl a real beauty elixir. Healthy plantbased fats like avocado and chia seeds are also essential to healthy and glowing skin, providing with also lots of skin loving minerals like zinc, calcium and selenium.
I love having this bowl as breakfast or as a post workout snack as it’s packed with protein & fibre which will help to keep you fuller for longer.
½ beetroot peeled
1 frozen banana ( you can use fresh banana as well, frozen bananas make the smoothie extra thick and creamy)
½ cup of frozen berries of your choice ( I have used blackberries)
2 tablespoons of Love Arctic Fresh Blackcurrant powder
½ cup of coconut milk or any no dairy milk of your choice
1 tablespoon of chia seeds (this is optional but it will make the smoothie creamier and it will add extra protein and healthy fats)
Topping options :
Simply place all the ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. You can use more or less coconut milk depending on how thick you like your smoothie. If you are in a rush and you prefer drink it you just add more almond milk to make it more liquid.
If I have time in the morning I love serving mine in a bowl and top it with fresh berries, homemade granola and some coconut chips for extra crunch.
