Banana Chia Spirulina Yogurt

I debated between calling this a yogurt or a smoothie in a bowl.  Even though it can be a smoothie, it was really thick so it needs to be eaten out of a bowl like yogurt.  Usually, when I eat a smoothie in a bowl I add additional toppings.  Since I didn’t add additional toppings, I think this is more like a recipe for a yogurt base.  If you add additional toppings you can call it a yogurt bowl or a smoothie in a bowl since it is so thick.  In fact, I think next time I will definitely add banana slices, almonds or walnuts, and maybe even hemp seeds on top for more texture and more of a filling breakfast.

Banana Chia Spirulina Yogurt

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup plain Amande yogurt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp spirulina*

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  Pour into a bowl and add additional toppings if desired.

*If you don’t have spirulina, you can omit, but I suggest using a small handful of spinach for added nutrition.

This yogurt is great for breakfast if you add those additional toppings for a more filling and satisfying meal!  The spirulina is a great energy boost and the banana will give you additional energy and nutrition as well!

This recipe yields approximately 255 calories and 6.5g protein.
