This Pink Breakfast Bowl is as Good For You as it is Gorgeous
Easy green smoothie recipes are great, but there’s nothing like a pink smoothie bowl made with berries and edible flowers. Inspired by Green Kitchen Smoothies, we made a few adjustments to their kid-friendly breakfast bowl recipe (like leaving off the protein powder) for a pink smoothie idea that can be changed up based on whatever is seasonal at the time of year that you’re making it.
Berries are seasonal in summer, beets come into season in the fall, and pink citrus like blood oranges are most widely available in winter in most parts of the northern hemisphere. (All three can be used to give a smoothie a gorgeous pink color.)
This bowl is packed with nutrients to ensure you get a running start to your day.
Banana offers potassium and lots of fiber, blueberries keep the brain sharp, raspberries and blackberries contain plenty of essential vitamins and nutrients. Flax and chia seeds, meanwhile, add micronutrients and Omega-3 fatty acids. Nut butter also gives an extra boost of protein in the morning, which studies show offers a whole host of health benefits by itself.
Check out the recipe below.
