Mermaid Smoothie Bowl (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

Take a refreshing dip into a healthy, delicious, plant-based bowl today! This Mermaid Smoothie Bowl is completely plant-based (vegan), and packed with the cool, rich goodness of bananas, citrus, chia seeds, soymilk, and spirulina—a nutrient-packed, blue green algae that gives this smoothie bowl it’s pure ocean color and nutrition punch. I’m a fan of including more algae, such as seaweed and spirulina, in the diet more often as a sustainable source of nutrition. In fact, you’ll see my article on algae in the summer 2020 issue of Oprah Magazine.

Just whip up 6 ingredients and you’ll have a healthy, flavorful breakfast, mini-meal, or hearty snack ready in no time. While you can enjoy it right away, for best results, whip up this smoothie bowl the day before, let it chill in the refrigerator overnight, and the chia seeds will help gel in order to create a pudding-like, creamy texture. 

Step-By-Step Guide:

Gather together all of your ingredients to make this recipe: Bananas, oranges, soymilk, spirulina, vanilla, spirulina, coconut, berries, and cocoa nibs.
You can find spirulina at most natural food stores and online.
Place bananas, orange, and chia seeds in the container of a small blender.
Add spirulina, plant-based milk, and vanilla to blender container.
Process just for a few seconds, until smooth and creamy.
Pour smoothie into a large individual bowl (about 2 cups). Garnish with shredded coconut, cocoa nibs, and berries. Chill until serving time (for best results, chill overnight). Enjoy!
