LOW SUGAR SMOOTHIE BOWL

Low Sugar Smoothie Bowl Recipe Vegan

Smoothies are one of the most delicious ways to pack in lots of nutrients in the morning and help you hit your 5-a-day, but they can often end up being quite high in sugar, without careful consideration of the ingredients.

Breakfast can be a great opportunity to start our day consuming a variety of essential nutrients, but unfortunately, commercial breakfasts (think cereals, granola bars, breakfast muffins etc) are often high in free sugars. ⁠I’ve created this LOW SUGAR SMOOTHIE BOWL recipe for you to try at home! ⬇️ ⁠

Here are my TOP TIPS for building a balanced smoothie, so that you can start the day off by stabilising your blood sugar, avoiding any peaks that lead to drops (the blood sugar roller-coaster) later in the day. 

👉🏼 Add a source of healthy fat in the form of 1/2 avocado and/or 1 tbsp of nut butter

👉🏼 Boost the fibre with 2 tbsp of chia/flax/hemp seeds and a handful of leafy greens (spinach, kale). 

👉🏼 Include high-quality protein powder

👉🏼 Choose your liquid wisely (I use unsweetened almond milk + water)

👉🏼 Add more flavour with nutritious extras such as cacao, maca, cinnamon, matcha etc. 

👉🏼 Opt for low-GI (glycaemic index) fruits like blueberries, raspberries, frozen cherries and kiwi, over bananas, oranges and grapes (or stick to 1/3 banana – frozen is easiest to do this).

In this recipe for my Low Sugar Smoothie Bowl, I sneak in 3 portions of veggies, plus 1 portion of fruit! The beetroots in here add a gorgeous pop of colour as well as a boost of nutrients including vitamin C, folate (vitamin B9) and fibre! Beetroots also contain nitrates which have been shown to help reduce blood pressure.⁠ Meanwhile, the avocado in here provides a good dose of monounsaturated fat (great for heart health) while giving the smoothie a thick, creamy consistency.

Note: I highly recommend investing in a good blender if you’re going to be making lots of smoothies! I use this Nutribullet which is a high enough standard and very affordable.
