Blue Banana Smoothie Bowl

Ever since ‘Unicorn Food’ became cool, I’ve admired how the different colors in the food were made. Beet for pink, matcha for green, and blue algae for blue. Yes, I said blue algae. You know, that thing you learn about in 3rd grade science class…! I bet you didn’t know that organic blue-green algae is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet! When I learned this, it was a no-brainer. I needed algae in my life, and smoothie bowls would be the perfect place to experiment.

What You Will Need:
1.5C Unsweetened Coconut Milk
1/2 Frozen Banana
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I used Vanilla Aloha– Code NOBREAD20 gets you a discount!)
1.5 tsp Blue Spirulina (I used Blue Majik)
1T Chia or Flax Seeds
1T Coconut Oil
Optional: 1T Bulletproof Brain Octane

What You Will Do:
Add all items to a blender, starting with your nut milk.
Blend on high for 1 minute or until totally combined.
Pour into a bowl and add your toppings!
I added Purely Elizabeth granola, coconut butter, and blueberries!

The more Blue Majik you add, the more blue your smoothie bowl becomes! I settled on using a teaspoon and a half, and the taste of the spirulina wasn’t overpowering. I also only used a half banana, and you can totally use a full banana to add more creaminess and banana flavor. I didn’t add any veggies to this smoothie, but next time I plan to add 1C frozen cauliflower for added nutrients and texture!
