Get in your greens with this healthy and delicious Blueberry Green Smoothie Bowl recipe. Once you try eating a smoothie with a spoon, you will ditch the straw for life!I was shooting freelance for a brand one time who was unhappy that the green smoothie recipe I had developed for them was in fact purple. I didn’t know how to explain to them that the smoothie included a cup of kale, a cup of spinach, spirulina (their request…not mine haha) and avocado and couldn’t possibly become more green.

Except that it really was purple…

So before y’all attack me for my purple-green smoothie bowl, remember that looks can be deceiving. Plus no one likes a smoothie racist.

In actuality, I wanted to call this “The Healthy Maven’s go-to smoothie bowl” but I was told that sounded arrogant and I needed to snap out of my oh she glows moment. I’m just desperate for smoothie fame.

Get in your greens with this healthy and delicious Blueberry Green Smoothie Bowl recipe. Once you try eating a smoothie with a spoon, you will ditch the straw for life!The truth is that this is my go-to smoothie bowl because it is the only smoothie bowl I have ever made. I’ve always been intrigued by the concept of smoothie bowls but always thought they were a little too basic.

…and then I realized that eating my smoothie out of a cup with a spoon is the same thing.

I also have never been a huge smoothie person. Mainly because I can’t handle cold first thing in the morning. But my friend Alexis has witch-powers and convinced me by doing absolutely nothing other than being her bad-ass self to try them.

After asking a million and 1 people about their favorite plant-based protein powder (review coming soon), I finally set forth to create my go-to smoothie bowl that wouldn’t create an arctic tundra in my mouth, help me get my greens in and up my protein first thing in the meaning.

Get in your greens with this healthy and delicious Blueberry Green Smoothie Bowl recipe. Once you try eating a smoothie with a spoon, you will ditch the straw for life!This clean, mean and green (purple) smoothie bowl is the final result and when I say I have eaten this every single day for the last month, I’m not exaggerating (unlike the rest of this post).

And honestly, I kind of feel amazing starting my day with it. It’s filling, nutritious, full of greens and protein and better yet, tastes awesome.

But most importantly, I can now officially enter the cool club that is the smoothie-bowl Instagram elite. Get ready for a perfect alignment of superfoods, wooden spoons and delicate hand-placement.

I’ve never felt more alive!

      Thanks for sharing that publicly. I redact everything shared in today’s granola in a jar post. P.S. this just proves why my wordpress thinks your comments are spam.

    Love smoothie bowls…best thing about eating them out of a bowl is all the toppings you can put on it!

    I’m definitely more of an veggie omelet person for breakfast, but something a smoothie hits the spot! Also – adding arugula to your smoothie? Does the arugula make it spicy or can you not really taste it?

      you can totally taste it, but I really like it! I’m weird like that though haha. I just can’t get with eggs in the morning unless it’s a weekend brunch situation. Not sure why!

    I love smoothie bowls, but they are more a summer thing for me. Sometimes I even eat them as a dessert. In the winter I need something to warm me in the morning, but I am trying to include smoothie bowls in the winter routine as well.

      I totally felt the same way, but I’ve been finding that if I only use frozen berries then it doesn’t taste as cold so it can pass in the fall/winter 😉

    Second time I’m making this bowl of yumtastic goodness, and this time I had a stroke of inspiration and added a spoonful of cocoa powder. Brought it to the next level OMG! If you haven’t tried the blueberry- chocolate combo in smoothies yet, do yourself a favor and throw in that chocolate. Also, chocolate is just never out of place in a recipe….except maybe in like avocado toast…..hmmmmmmm. 😉

      I LOVE adding cocoa powder to this smoothie! Sometimes I swap raspberries for blueberries and add a scoop of cocoa powder and it tastes like chocolate-raspberry heaven!
