This smoothie bowl tastes as good as it looks! It is vibrant, nutritious and simply delicious! You have sweet mango, balanced with coconut, earthy goji berries, tart sweet goldenberries and zingy fresh lime. There is base note of fresh root ginger too. The flavours of a tropical holiday in a bowl!
Nutritionally, this smoothie bowl is excellent with anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant rich turmeric and fresh ginger, anti-oxidant rich goji berries and goldenberries and omega-3, protein and fibre-packed chia seeds. I also love to enrich my smoothie bowls with protein powder; soya bean, pea, whey protein powder are excellent choices. (You can substitute for 40g steamed sweet potato or tofu if you prefer).
By using coconut milk, this smoothie is dairy-free and so suitable for vegans. The fun bit is deciding which topping to add!
Note: If you are unsure which blender to buy to make smoothies (and other dishes with!), I came across this helpful review by Which?
