Getting in a healthy mindset can happen any time of year and that’s why we’re introducing The 7-Day Smoothie Bowl Challenge Hannah Sunderani brings you a healthy, nutritious and delicious smoothie bowl each day of our challenge to get you in the right frame of mind for a healthier you.  It all starts with just one day (or in this case, 7!)

Congratulations on making it to Day 2 of the Smoothie Bowl Challenge!  (if you missed Day 1 you can catch up here) Today we’re bringing you this Purple Nourish Smoothie Bowl for a little TLC. I absolutely love this antioxidant-packed dark purple smoothie bowl and its wholesome taste. Think of this smoothie bowl as the yogi of bowls. It reminds us to nourish our bodies with pure ingredients and to be mindful of what we’re eating.

This smoothie bowl is a superfood haven! It’s a healthy blend of blueberries, raspberries, spinach and spirulina. Then we’ve topped it with sliced banana, crunchy granola and coconut shavings. The combined ingredients are completely nourishing for the body and soul. You may have noticed we’ve snuck in those leafy greens from Day 1 once again. You didn’t think I’d let you forget about your greens so soon did you? But just like yesterday’s bowl, they’re masked behind a gorgeous berry blend that’s as sweet as can be.

So, what’s this obsession with spirulina? Glad you asked! Spirulina is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. Seriously, it’s a superfood rich in iron and protein! I could go on, but I’m afraid I’ll start to sound like a bossy mom. So I’ll finish by saying this, “Quit complaining and eat those greens! A teaspoon a day keeps the doctor away!”. Okay, I’m sorry, but I couldn’t resist.

But really, you’ll love this plentiful bowl. Its taste, colour and antioxidant rich ingredients work wonders to nourish your body, mind and soul.

Congrats on accomplishing Day 2!
