If you are looking for a new way to eat honey at breakfast other than on your porridge, then smoothie bowls could be your next big thing.
What is a smoothie bowl?
If you are not familiar with smoothie bowls, they area like smoothies just thicker and you eat them with a spoon and not with a straw.
Smoothie bowls are a cool thick blend of frozen fruits, vegetables and other healthy add ins like avocado, oats or yogurt.
You can decorate your smoothie bowl with a range of seeds, nuts, chopped fruits to add an extra layer of nutrient rich food. You can also give your smoothie bowl a whole heap of colour, like ours which get the green from the addition of spirulina powder.
Spirulina and Honey
In case you are not familiar with spirulina, it is a blue-green microalgae that is considered a superfood due to its nutritional content. It’s protein rich and has lots of amino acids, iron, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin B12. Combined with honey, a smoothie bowl is a great energy booster. Spirulina is gaining popularity so you should find the powder easily in a health shop.
Smoothie bowls are dense, which makes them a filling breakfast. Below is a really easy recipe for a green smoothie bowl, which should take 10 minutes to make (if you remember to freeze your banana first).
- 1-2 teaspoons raw honey

- 1 frozen banana
- 1 kiwi
- 1 handful of spinach or kale
- 2 teaspoon spirulina
- 250ml milk (almond or oat milk is also great)

Suggested Toppings: blueberries, raspberries, sliced coconut, chia seeds and nuts.
