This recipe marks the close of smoothie week – I saved the best for last!

We started the week with this Chai-Spiced Persimmon Smoothie (which is basically a healthy winter milkshake if you ask me), moved to a Banana Bread Oat Protein Smoothie (which is a fancy excuse to drink your fill of banana bread-flavored bliss), and now we have the ultimate detox smoothie with a big protein punch.

I’ve grown to view smoothie bowls as a marvelous post-spin or hot Pilates mini meal, as they replenish my energy level nearly instantaneously and they go down easily.

If I eat big meals soon after exercising, my digestive system gets pretty peevish. Hence: smoothies.

When it comes to superfood smoothies, this one is the alpha omega.

It includes avocado, banana (or skip the banana and add more avo if your belly doesn’t do well with bananas), spinach, cacao powder, and Rootz Paleo Protein Superfood.

All elements combined make for a vitamin & mineral-packed antioxidant elixir with a marvelous balance of protein, fat, and sugar, making for a well-rounded breakfast or post-workout fuel up.

Rootz derives its protein source from egg whites, sacha inchi, and hemp powder, all of which are a-okay by me. Plus, it includes superfoods such as chia seeds, flax seeds, maca root, bee pollen, acai, gogi berries, blueberries, spirulina, chlorella, kale, spinach, broccoli, etc.

Not to mention, it’s soy-free, gluten-free, peanut and tree nut-free, and contains no artificial sweeteners or anything funky I can’t wrap my mind around.

Since we’ve all turned over a new leaf to be health-conscious in the coming year, let’s discuss the health benefits this bowl brings to the table.

Avocados – High in monounsaturated oleic acid, a fatty acid that is considered to be heart healthy, and also phenomenal for brain function and healthy skin. A decent source of Vitamins K, and C as well as Folate and potassium.

Banana – Mostly for sweetness but also healthy carbs, potassium, and fiber to regenerate glycogen stores in your muscles post-workout

Spinach – One of nature’s detoxifiers! Spinach is an excellent source of Vitamin K and A (antioxisants, woop woop!), as well as Vitamins C, E, B6, folate, calcium, and magnesium. 

Cacao Powder – Not to be confused with cocoa powder, which is heat treated and sometimes contains sugar, cacao powder is a major superfood. Packed with polyphenols, which are natural antioxidants. Cacao powder also contains Vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, E, and essential minerals such as magnesium, calcium, sulfur, zinc, iron, copper, potassium, and manganese.

Ground Cinnamon – Promotes blood circulation, supports your cardiovascular system, and may help lower your blood sugar. Also makes smoothies taste delicious.

Topping the green smoothie bowl with fresh blueberries, a variety of seeds, shredded coconut, cacao nibs, and almond butter amps up the nutrient profile even more, yielding vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein.
