We love waking up to a healthy breakfast bowl, knowing it will keep us full and satisfied all the way to lunchtime. So, today we want to share this nutritious papaya smoothie bowl recipe with you to help you start the day right.
We made a creamy, light orange smoothie with vegan yogurt and ripe papaya. Then, we topped it with jumbo rolled oats, nut butter, and blackberries into a super-cute bowl. Just leave the oats to soften for a few minutes, and get ready to dig in!
Smoothie bowls are an easy way of preparing a well-balanced breakfast with a tasty combo of smooth and crunchy textures. They usually consist of a thick smoothie with various toppings, like nuts, seeds, grains, and fruit. It's so fun to experiment with different flavours and combinations every time. For example, check out our blue spirulina smoothie bowl.
In our recipe, we opted for a tropical twist using papaya. When perfectly ripe, this orange fruit has a lovely buttery flesh and sweet taste similar to melon and mango. Plus, it's loaded with vitamin C, with 100g providing over 70% of your RDI of this nutrient.
Soy yogurt makes a fantastic base for the smoothie, as it's low in fats and high in plant-based proteins. We paired it with oats, nut butter, and berries for a boost of slow-digesting carbs, filling fibres, and antioxidants.
Vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free, each smoothie bowl has only 270 calories. It covers over 30% of your RDI of fibres, 10% RDI for carbs, and 26% RDI of proteins. Sweet!
