Banana Blueberry Superfood Bowl

 Today I have a quick & easy recipe for you guys, that only takes about a minute to throw together!  This bowl of nutrients is my go-to breakfast when I want a clean & healthy start to my day (just serve with an egg, sausage, or bacon for a little extra protein!)


It's also the perfect dessert option, since the frozen fruit mimics the texture & sweetness of ice cream!  I love the sweet, creamy flavor of the banana mixed with the tart blueberries.  The chia seeds add a great little crunch, and the coconut adds yet another dimension of flavor!

The texture of this bowl depends on how long you heat it.  I usually stick to around 30 seconds to keep some of the frosty texture- almost like frozen yogurt.  I've also heated this for around 1 minute & made more of a warm pudding-like dessert when it's cold outside.  Either way, this little concoction is SO tasty & fresh, and super satisfying.

I call this my "superfood bowl" because of all of the superstar ingredients.  Each of the four simple ingredients packs its own nutritious punch:


Now that you know all the good that can come to you by eating this  bowl of deliciousness, you should go make it! :D  The whole thing is just 134 calories, and is 100% Paleo, which means no gluten, grains, dairy, or soy.
