It was challenging to find a fitting name for this smoothie bowl recipe as there’s a lot going on here. Practically every superfood currently in my kitchen got featured in today’s breakfast. With properties such as being low glycemic, high in protein (34 grams) and high in fiber (24 grams), this is a healing breakfast for PCOS-fighters. I usually keep chopped fruits and veggies in the freezer ready to go for smoothies. Not only does this make smoothies colder, but also thicker. Nut butters will also help thicken smoothies. Have fun dreaming up your own smoothie bowl masterpiece and please share your creations with me in the comments below.
- 0.5 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 cups frozen chopped kale, organic if possible
- 1 frozen banana
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 scoop plant-based protein powder
- 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
- 1 inch chunk of fresh ginger
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- goji berries
- raspberries, organic if possible
- Blend almond milk, ice cubes, and banana in a blender until smooth.
- Slowly add kale, ginger, protein powder and peanut butter blending after each ingredient.
- Pour into a bowl and top with any fruits and seeds you have in your kitchen.
- kale = good source of calcium which helps to improve egg and follicle development
- chia seeds = high in omega 3s which can help decrease high testosterone and improve egg quality
- raspberries = low glycemic index fruit, high in anti-oxidants, may help lower inflammation and prevent cancer
- ginger = anti-inflammatory, may help decrease fasting blood glucose and HbA1c
- goji berries = high in protein, anti-oxidants, beta-carotene
