Superfood Smoothie Bowl

Superfood Smoothie Bowl | almost getting it together

Did you ever notice how every food is now a “superfood”? Also most foods are now also detox foods. People need to slow their roll with putting food into categories.

Anyway, I know I owe you about a million two travel recaps along with a ton of other stuff I want to share, but I haven’t had the chance to create a recipe for a couple weeks and this takes a lot less brain effort to write then something I have to go fact-check.

Nicaragua was amazing. I’ll recap fully soon, I promise. Of course the first place I made my dad stop after he picked me up from the airport (at 11 p.m.) was the grocery store to buy spinach. I had been feeling pretty gross my whole trip and couldn’t wait to start eating super clean again.

I just felt like I ate so much when I really didn’t. I was just eating differently than normal (trying to eat for energy – surfing is hard work!) and I start to feel weird when I’m not eating a ton of veggies and protein. After Tuesday, I made the exec decision I was no longer going to eat white rice… I don’t love it, my body doesn’t love it, I might as well spend the calories somewhere else and eat something satisfying.

Sunday morning, I woke up pretty hungry from not eating anything substantial on Saturday (the Managua and Houston airports both lack healthy options and plane food is probably just injected with sodium). I also knew I needed vegetables stat. I had a smoothie bowl at this cool raw foods cafe in San Juan del Sur and decided to just Cassie-fy it. I was a little cold after breakfast but I suddenly had a ton of energy and felt like myself again. Oh, and did I mention it was delicious?

Superfood Smoothie Bowl
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 1
  • 2 huge handfuls spinach
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup ice
  • ½ cup coconut water
  • ½ scoop vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ cup raw rolled oats
  • ¼ avocado
  • ½ banana
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • 2 tbsp Purely Elizabeth Blueberry Hemp Granola
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut
  1. Put spinach, frozen strawberries, ice, coconut water, protein powder and oats. into your blender and blend until smooth. It should be a little thicker than a normal smoothie and not flow out of the container - you should have to use a spatula to get it all out.
  2. Put smoothie into a bowl.
  3. Add remaining ingredients as toppings and try not to get a brain freeze as you dig in (this is coming from experience).

This one is pretty amazing – I also love the original purely elizabeth as well. I like how they have quinoa, aramanth, etc. instead of just oats – lots more protein!

I absolutely love white rice. Like, if I could eat white rice and regular potatoes every day, my life would be complete. HOWEVER, your smoothie bowl does look great. Funny story, when I was in Costa Rica, ALL I ate was white rice because I hate black beans (their other staple food).

That’s so funny! In Nicaragua, they eat these red beans… which I actually like! Where were you at in CR?

Yum! I’m not big on protein powders, but I bet this would still be delicious without it. I’m loving smoothie bowls lately, but am with you on getting a bit lost with all the ‘superfood’ categories. :-/

Definitely can make without protein powder… I just like to get extra protein because I feel like I never get enough!

Welcome home, darling!! I usually make myself one big asK salad bowl containing everything but the kitchen sink when getting back from traveling & lacking any vegetables. I’m probably just as obsessed with vegetables as you.

BTW: your smoothie bowl not only sounds delicious but I wish I could have a bowl right NOW! Fly to Kuwait and bring me one? :)

This looks like the best getting back on track meal EVERRRR! So loaded with goodness. Avocado in smoothies = best thing that ever happened to me.

I don’t know why I waited so long to try avocado in smoothies… I’m seriously eating an avocado a day, is that healthy??

It is actually chock full of everything you could brandish a superfood. Genius. I still need to try the avocado in a non spread form.

Lots and lots and lots of veggies is what I pack myself full of when I want to get back on track. I am loving your smoothie bowl it looks amazing. Love the pretty presentation of it. Would you believe I’ve never had a smoothie bowl? smoothies yes but not as a bowl, will definitely have to try this.

Yes smoothie bowls are way more satisfying because you feel like you’re eating real food… just use less liquid than normal :)

Smoothie is my favorite breakfast and I always ‘drink’ it in the morning. Now I think smoothie bowl is an awesome idea too! Would love to have some muesli as toppings, yum!
