Spooky Scary Pumpkin Berry Smoothie Bowl

Happy October! Today is World Vegetarian Day (woo!) and Pumpkin Spice Day (wooo!). I am so excited to kick off the season with this amazing recipe (that I discovered by accident!).

I love a loaded smoothie bowl, and I’m always interested in add-ins that make for a prettier, healthier bowl. This summer, I finally bought spirulina powder. This blue-green algae is loaded with protein, B vitamins, and Iron. Plus, it’s so pretty.

But do you know what happens when you add blue-green powder to a dark purple smoothie? IMG_1545It turns black! Not my fresh summer smoothie, but maybe something perfect for a little later in the year…

Ingredients

-1/2 cup organic frozen berry mix (like Full Circle Market)

-1/2 cup pumpkin puree (like Thrive Market organic pumpkin)

-2 tsp acai powder

-1 scoop spirulina powder (like Kos)

-1 scoop Organic Pressed Juice

-2 scoops protein powder (I swear by Bob’s Red Mill Protein Powder)

-toppings: I used chia seeds, flax seeds, and Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Pumpkin Cinnamon Granola

Directions

  1. Blend all ingredients (except toppings) together, adding water to thin if need be.
  2. Transfer to bowl.
  3. Add toppings– for the pumpkin shape, I used a cookie cutter before sprinkling my flax seeds on top.
  4. Enjoy

It’s a great way to add some extra fruit, veggies, and protein to your breakfast. If you follow the Dr Greger Daily Dozen, then you’ve hit 5 of your goals (flaxseed, berries, nuts, and two vegetables).

Happy baking, and stay tuned for more pumpkin! Spooky Scary Pumpkin Berry Smoothie Bowl
