I’m a huge fan of smoothies (especially green smoothies) and more recently, of smoothie bowls. This spirulina and blueberry smoothie bowl is quick, easy to make, and packed full of energy-boosting ingredients! Adding toppings such as berries, powdered greens, nuts, and seeds makes it the perfect breakfast or post-workout pick-me-up.
This delicious power-packed smoothie bowl recipe was created by health and fitness expert, Penny Weston. Penny is the director and founder of MADE, a forward-thinking wellness centre in Staffordshire. Part of the gorgeous Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat, MADE was born out of Penny’s own struggle with food-related ill health, including allergies, bloating, fatigue, and severe asthma. Turning her health around with nutrition and fitness, Penny has created a go-to destination for anyone who wants to overhaul their own health.

The benefits of a Spirulina and Blueberry Smoothie Bowl
Usually, I make a spirulina and blueberry smoothie bowl on a Sunday morning after a cardio workout to get my protein in. As well as that it boosts my energy to prevent a post-workout slump. For the last 6 months, I have taken spirulina in the mornings either in powder form mixed into a smoothie or in tablet form. In particular, I have noticed a positive difference in my skin. Not only that, but my energy levels are also more consistent and I don’t find that I’m as bloated as usual!
Spirulina contains protein, good fats, vitamins, and minerals including vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, and iron. Along with being suitable for vegans too, it’s a healthy habit that is well and truly ingrained in my morning routine.
