It’s hot outside and who feels like cooking? Not us.
Summer is a time for cool, hydrating foods and a time when turning on the oven for a nutrient-dense breakfast is the last thing on your mind. Thankfully, this strawberry-beet smoothie bowl will have you energized and feeling great with just the flick of a blender. And the combination of beets and fresh summer fruit is light + refreshing, bright and absolutely beautiful. Even better? It’s naturally sweetened and loaded with skin-loving antioxidants.
If you haven’t given the smoothie-bowl trend a go, all you need to know is it’s a slightly thicker version of your favorite smoothie that’s loaded with a few toppings to give it texture and crunch. Enjoy!
- 1 cup hulled and sliced strawberries
- 1 small cooked beet, peeled and roughly chopped
- ½ cup cubed mango
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon fresh grated ginger (ginger powder works as well)
- ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
- Toppings: granola, chopped fruit, nuts, seeds, shredded coconut, hemp hearts, cacao nibs, dried fruit
Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl and top with your favorite toppings.
