Blueberry Coconut Bowl

Hello gorgeous breakfast!

I already have tons of smoothie bowl recipes here on the blog, but I couldn't resist putting this up too. Wild blueberries are so delicious and good for you. Full of antioxidants to protect your precious cells, they are a true superfood. I also adore the beautiful purple colour ♥.

In this smoothie I used coconut flour, which gives it a subtle but lovely coconut flavour. The coconut flour also makes the smoothie thick and creamy as it absorbs a lot of liquid. The frozen blueberries also makes the smoothie thicker, but if you want an even thicker and creamier consistency you could also use frozen bananas instead of fresh ones. Simply pour the smoothie into a bowl and top with nuts, seeds, granola or dried fruit.

I almost always eat my breakfast at work. So for taking this breakfast on the go I would simply put the smoothie in a glass jar. Then I would put my toppings in a smaller jar and add them on top of the smoothie just before serving. For a normal work day I usually bring breakfast, lunch, snack and a few pieces of fresh fruit. Also I love to have some dark chocolate on hand. This may seem like a lot of food (and sometimes it's so heavy to carry :)) but it's so worth it. Food is fuel (and pleasure) and so important for keeping your energy up during the day.

Have a great Friday and weekend!
