Tropical Smoothie Bowl is a smoothie in a bowl with mojito inspired flavors. Loaded with fruit it's a tasty, simple way to eat more fruit and vegetables. It's a gluten-free and dairy-free smoothie recipe.
Do you struggle to get your children to eat enough fruit and vegetables? I sure do, especially my daughter. She prefers cookies over clementines any day.
But she loves smoothies.
I like smoothie bowls due to all the space on top for delicious, healthy toppings.
My favorite fruit to use in smoothies is blueberries, they offer a huge nutrition punch in a very small package.
Blueberries are packed with vitamins A, C, E, and K, along with fiber, manganese, iron, and antioxidants. There are many health benefits to blueberries supposedly due to their unique assortment of phytochemicals including anthocyanins (responsible for their bright color), chlorogenic acid ( , and resveratrol ( .
Pro Tip: Research has focused on the antioxidant activity, potential cancer-prevention properties, protective effects against dementia-related diseases, and is linked to the urinary tract, heart, and vision health. Research has placed blueberries on the top of the list in highest antioxidant activity.
The intense color of blueberries hides the bright green color of any greens you add to your smoothies. I don't know about you, but I have a better chance of getting my kiddos to eat a purple smoothie, over a green one.
Kitchen Tip: For the best smoothie, consider using a high-speed blender. They work best at getting all the greens to magically disappear! My favorite cost-effective blender is my Ninja. You can check it out here. You don't need to drop hundreds of dollars on a more fancy model. This one works great!
