Recipe: Purple Power Protein Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie Recipes

By: Chris Freytag, CPT

This smoothie bowl recipe is full of antioxidants, energizing nutrients and you guessed it, tummy-satisfying protein. Before you freak out over the beets…let me tell you they are responsible for the beautiful purple color but more importantly they are full of great nutrition and add a sweet mild taste.

Here is the low down:

  • Beets add the anti-inflammatory nutrient, betanin, to the mixture which means your tummy will feel happy and soothed afterwards.
  • The berries pack a punch of sweetness with natural sugar and fiber to leave you feeling energized and full.
  • The protein powder aids in muscle rebuilding, leaving you feeling powerful after a workout.

To make a smoothie into a “ bowl,” the key is thickness. So before you add extra almond milk, give it a chance to blend up. I love pouring it into a bowl because it feels like I’m eating something hearty. And of course, toppings make it interesting so get creative and have fun. Go ahead, plunge that spoon in to your protein-packed smoothie bowl and smile away knowing you treated your body right!

Yes, beets do come pre-sliced and frozen! But you can also take your left over beets, slice, and freeze.

Try these frozen beets in your next purple power protein smoothie bowl for a delicious healthy treat full of nutrients!
