Berry and Cacao Smoothie Bowl with Moringa Powder

One of my favourite go-to post work out meal seems to always be a smoothie bowl. I’ve been pretty much in love with how fast it takes to make and how long it fills me up for. I have been experimenting with a load of different recipes and will start posting a few more of my favourite concoctions on here so you can try them out too. 

It’s one of my favourite days today, a Monday and market day. Which means it’s a day spent usually eating, practicing yoga and focusing on myself. Over the past year or so I’ve been focusing on all aspects of my health and learning about my self, from my mind to my body and in doing this, not only am I getting to know how my body works, how to listen to it and also learning to look after it with the respect it deserves. This is a daily challenge because I could quite easily sit and eat chocolate spread on toast for every meal, so keeping my meals interesting and relatively simple and fast to make is my favourite kind of meal. 

The recipe for this was inspired by all the fruit that I may or may not have slightly crushed on the walk back home from town.. Picture this, I have several bags of market fruit and veggies. I’m carrying my yoga mat and hand bag and they take it in turns beating me in the butt as I walk slowly losing the grip on my bagged up melons, etc. They fall, taking the bag of not so appropriately placed raspberries and provide a great cushion for the melon… 

So I used all the raspberries to create this absolute delight. 

I had also read about the benefits of including Moringa powder into my diet for a number of reasons. Mostly it’s superfood qualities that boast  medicinal and healing purposes. And the amount you actually need to use every day is up to a tablespoon a day but I’d recommend starting with about a teaspoon and seeing how you go. 


Smoothie Ingredients:

  • 1 banana 
  • A handful of blueberries 
  • A handful of strawberries 
  • A handful of raspberries 
  • 1/2 cup oats 
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk 
  • 1 teaspoon** of Moringa powder*

Toppings: 

  • A handful of chia seeds 
  • A handful of organic cacao nibs 
  • A handful of flax seeds 
  • A handful of dried coconut flakes 
  • A dashing of blueberries 
  • 2 passion fruit 

* If the Moringa powder is overwhelming, I find it’s quite an earthy taste, but on the bag it is written that it has a similar taste to spinach, just add more of your preffered berries. 

** I decided to change this amount from 1 tablespoon to 1 teaspoon after reading about the daily intake. 

I’ll be posting about why I have added Moringa powder to my daily food intake shortly so keep an eye out for that and let me know what you think!
