5 Superfood Smoothie Bowls to Kickstart Your Morning

BY THE F45 NUTRITION TEAM, WWW.F45TRAINING.CO.UK 

Homemade smoothie bowls pack a ton of nutrients and make a great addition to your morning. Aside from being fun to prepare and looking like an Instagram-worthy work of art, they are loaded with fresh fruit and lots of fiber!

What’s great about the F45 Challenge-approved bowls below is that they incorporate a boost of protein, which is ideal for those who are plant-based or simply want to increase their protein intake. Preparing your own smoothie bowl takes less than five minutes and is a significantly healthier option than store-bought versions, which often contain a lot of added sugar. F45 smoothie bowls keep it simple by using nature’s sweetener (fresh fruit), quality protein (F45 Fuel), and lots of healthy fats (nuts and seeds).

If you’re a chocolate lover, you’re sure to enjoy the first three bowls!

Maca root powder is one of the best superfoods to add to smoothie bowls—not only is it an adaptogen, which helps the body adapt naturally to external stressors, but it is very nutrient-dense, packed with a number of vitamins and minerals.

Raw Nutella Smoothie Bowl

The plant-based Raw Nutella Smoothie Bowl is chocolatey and nutty, and contains no added sugar.

Hazelnuts are packed full of nutrients, including plenty of fiber, vitamin B6, folate, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. They’re also a rich source of healthy mono and polyunsaturated fats.
