Smoothie Bowl 2018 Instagram Contest

We’re celebrating Super Bowl LII the Bauman College way with our #SmoothieBowl2018 Instagram contest starting January 20th!

We want to see your beautiful, colorful smoothie bowls, but with a Bauman College twist.

Health-Supportive Smoothie Ingredients

Smoothies are a delicious way to add more healthy fruits and vegetables to your diet, but can often become low-fiber, sugar bombs when the only ingredients are fruit juice and high-glycemic fruits like bananas, oranges, and mangoes.

Round out your healthy smoothie bowl without sacrificing flavor by adding:

  • Vegetables: cauliflower, beets, yams, dark leafy greens (e.g., kale, spinach, chard, collards, etc.)
  • Healthy Fats: avocado, ghee, coconut oil, MCT oil, coconut milk, nuts/seeds, nut butter
  • Protein: grass-fed whey, grass-fed collagen peptides, bone broth, pea protein, hemp protein, nuts/seeds/nut butter
  • Booster Foods: seaweed (e.g., spirulina, Irish moss, nori), nutritional yeast, bee pollen, ginger, flax seeds, chia seeds, aloe vera, supportive herbs (e.g., ashwaganda, euleuthero, rhodiola)
  • Low-glycemic Fruits: blueberries, blackberries, green apples

Here’s some inspiration from Nutrition Consultant student, Lila Volkas:
