Easy to make Smoothie Bowl

by Colin McGregor
• 1 frozen banana⁠
• A handful of frozen mixed berries ⁠
• 1 tbsp cacao powder⁠
• 1-2 tsps of Biogenesis Natural Chlorella Powder⁠
• 1/2 cup almond milk⁠
• 1 tbsp almond butter⁠

• Handful of coconut flakes⁠
• Handful of chia seeds⁠

1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend until creamy and smooth, then pour into a bowl. ⁠
2. Top with extra fruit, granola, coconut flakes, chia seeds, etc. It’s a great way to boost your bowl with extra nutritional benefits, and add fun textures/flavours to your bowl.⁠
3. Grab a spoon, sit back and enjoy!⁠

But is Fruit is Friend or Foe?⁠

A new interesting study demonstrates that fruit has shown benefits when replacing sugar however another increasing factor was a suggestion that in addition to having a very low GI, emerging evidence also shows that low-dose fructose (≤10 g/meal) may improve glycemic control through a “catalytic” effect on hepatic glucose metabolism by inducing glucokinase activity (controls blood sugar). ⁠

So throw in some fruit into your meals! ⁠
