One of the main reasons why I personally love this smoothie bowl is how vibrantly beautiful it looks.

My friends are so jealous when I share pictures of it on my social media channel.

But, that’s not all: 

  1. Vibrant Color: Blue spirulina gives the smoothie bowl a vibrant and appealing blue color that is visually striking. This can make it especially popular on social media. Trust me, your friend would want the recipe!
  2. Nutrient Density: The smoothie is packed with vitamins and minerals. It includes high levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and calcium, along with beneficial nutrients from blue spirulina such as iron and protein. 
  3. Antioxidant-Rich: The blueberries and mango offer a rich source of antioxidants.
  4. Energy Boosting: The natural sugars and carbohydrates from the bananas and mangoes provide a quick source of energy, making this smoothie bowl an excellent choice for breakfast or a pre-workout meal.
  5. Dietary Flexibility: This smoothie bowl is suitable for various diets, including vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free, making it accessible to a wide range of people with dietary restrictions or preferences.
  6. Satiety and Digestive Health: The smoothie bowl is high in dietary fiber, which promotes satiety and can help manage hunger, making it a good option for weight loss. Fiber also supports digestive health.
  7. Simple and Quick Preparation: The smoothie bowl is easy to prepare, requiring just a blender and a few minutes. 
  8. Customizable: It serves as a great base that can be topped with a variety of toppings such as nuts, seeds, fruits, or granola, allowing people to customize the taste and texture according to their preferences.
  9. Creamy Texture: The nut butter and banana gives the smoothie bowl a creamy, satisfying texture that enhances the eating experience.
  10. Unique Ingredient: The inclusion of blue spirulina not only makes the smoothie bowl nutritious but also adds a novelty factor that can intrigue and attract those interested in trying new and superfood-enriched dishes.

Smoothie Bowl Variations, Recipe Notes And Tips:

If you like experimenting, or simply have to swap ingredients, you can do so on your own will, or try some of my tested suggestions below:

  • Boost With Protein: If you are not avoiding dairy, add 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt. Adjust the almond milk to 1/4 cup though. 
  • Swap The Base: Use thick coconut milk or oat milk instead of almond.
  • Add Seeds: Add a spoonful of chia or flaxseeds for extra goodness!
  • No Banana: Swap the banana slices for extra mango or use pineapple instead. 
  • Make It Sweeter: You can add a tablespoon of maple syrup for extra sweetness!
  • Swap The Nut Butter: If you don’t have any almond or cashew butter, peanut butter can work just fine!

My Top Tips For Making The Perfect Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

If you follow these tips, you will be able to achieve the perfect smoothie bowl every time!

  1. Use Frozen Fruit: Make sure you shop ahead of time for frozen fruit or freeze the fruits yourself overnight before making this smoothie bowl.
  2. Follow The Recipe Precisely: Measure the ingredients carefully, ensuring they are exactly as listed. This is important if you want to make the perfect smoothie bowl!
  3. Use a High-Speed Blender: To make this smoothie bowl, you will need a high-speed blender, ideally one with a pushdown stick. This way you can make an ultra creamy smoothie without the of lots of liquid.
  4. Chill The Serving Bowl: Before making the smoothie, place your serving bowl in the fridge and freezer. The bowl will be chill by the time it’s time to serve!
  5. Enhance With Toppings: Add toppings that complement the smoothie bowl. Experiment on your own, it can be so fun, especially with kids.
  6. Eat ASAP: As soon as the smoothie bowl is served, eat it immediately, as it will start to thaw. It’s like ice cream!

Recipe Equipment

I high recommend that you use a blender with a pushdown stick if you want to make an ultra-thick smoothie.

If you don’t mind how thick your smoothie is, a Nutribullet can do a perfect job, alternatively use AmzChef, Ninja, or a food processor.
