My dairy free chia acai smoothie bowl is a low sugar blend of fruit and vegetables, together with vanilla protein and nut butter for a balanced breakfast! Thanks very much to Indigo Herbs for sending me their Super Vital Superfood Blend to use in this smoothie.
This beautiful chia acai smoothie bowl has a special little story behind it. I was recently sent a beautiful box of goodies from Indigo Herbs, a Glastonbury-based whole foods supplier that carries a HUGE range of natural products. Seriously – every time I have gone on to their website I have become lost in the online store! So, I was awfully glad when Indigo Herbs decided to just curate a bundle of some of their top products and send it on over to me.
Then, a funny little thing happened. Not one, but two boxes of my products arrived in the post! There had been a warehouse mix up and I ended up with an absolute bounty of goodness. In return for this little unexpected blessing, I thought I might showcase some of the Indigo Herbs range in this special recipe post.
One of the products I was sent to sample was a special Indigo Herbs blend called Super Vital Superfood Blend. It’s a powder blend of beetroot, acai and baobab, perfect for mixing into smoothies, porridge and baking. High in Vitamin C, a serve of this powder is also a source of trace amounts of Vitamin E, potassium, calcium and iron, as well as a reasonable amount of fibre.
Given the acai content, my first instinct was to create some kind of chia acai smoothie bowl with the Super Vital blend! As I like to keep my smoothie bowls on the low sugar side, I have been enjoying this powder blended into a mix of fruit and vegetables, together with some protein powder and some Indigo Herbs raw almond butter. The protein powder and almond butter help make this a balanced smoothie bowl (you can read more of my tips on how to make a healthy balanced smoothie in my dedicated blog post).
