Pear Smoothie Bowl with Spirulina Swirl

Pear and Spirulina Smoothie Bowl - Foody First

I’m an all year smoothie bowl kind of girl! You’ll find me enjoying smoothie bowls with seasonal ingredients throughout most of the cooler months! Even around Christmas time I enjoy a bowl of cacao nice cream with a little bit of peppermint extract!

I definitely crave them less than during the summer months, but I just go with the flow and give my body what it’s craving.

I chose to feature fresh pear in this smoothie bowl and it turned out so deliciously!

Spirulina is an excellent source of B-Vitamin’s, iron & copper (which both help to form red blood cells and build healthy bones!), and protein. This dietary supplement also has very powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties! Key point is that it is extremely nutrient-rich!
