Orange Antioxidant Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients

...

  • 3 large chunks of pineapple (approx. 75g)
  • 50g pepper (yellow or orange)
  • 1 tbsp. hemp seeds or chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. baobab superfruit powder
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 70ml plant milk (almond, oat, hemp or coconut)

This energising sunset orange smoothie bowl is crammed with antioxidants, protein, omega-3s, fibre, vitamins and minerals. It is perfect as a healthy breakfast, to recharge after exercise or simply to re-energise when you are flagging.

It is a zingy combination of sweet fragrant orange blended with juicy tropical pineapple, nutty carrot, earthy goji berries and zingy baobab superfruit powder.

Why is baobab a superfruit? Baobab is rich in vitamin C, fibre & antioxidants, minerals and the B vitamins; nutrients that can boost your energy levels, support the immune system and reduce tiredness.

To bump up the nutritional profile, I have included hemp seeds or chia seeds in the recipe. Both are rich sources of plant-based protein, fibre and healthy heart polyunsaturated fats!

As with many of my recipes, I also love to add protein powder. I use pea or soy varieties.
