This delicious Protein Smoothie Bowl is a fantastic choice for a nutritious and satisfying breakfast. I have become hooked on these lately. They are easy to make, super nutritious, and contain a variety of nutrient dense ingredients like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and plant-based proteins to keep you energised, satiated (feeling fuller for longer) and nourished throughout the day!
Protein is an essential macronutrient that helps build and repair tissues. It’s crucial for muscle development, overall body function, optimal cognitive function, immune support and hormone balance. With the combination of protein, healthy fats, and carbohydrates in a smoothie bowl it provides a steady release of energy. This helps prevent the energy spikes and crashes that can occur with sugary or low-protein breakfast options. I am sure we’ve all experienced that at times.
For those who engage in regular exercise, like me, a protein smoothie bowl can help aid in muscle recovery post-workout as well. The amino acids in protein help repair and rebuild muscle tissue, as mentioned above, reducing the likelihood of muscle soreness and promoting a quicker recovery. That is a win win in my book!
Smoothie Bowls are very versatile in that you can customise them with different protein sources (e.g., whey, plant-based), fruits, vegetables, and toppings, creating a breakfast that suits your specific needs and cravings.
