Mermaid Smoothie Bowl Recipe

April 20th, 2017

This Mermaid Smoothie Bowl not only looks like a lush aquatic seascape, but it’s flavored by the antioxidant- and nutrient-rich tropical fruits and sea algaes that we image mermaids get plenty of. No wonder they always seem to have glowing skin and long, beautiful hair! Thanks to Amazing Grass’ line of plant-based superfood and protein powders, you’d don’t have to live in the ocean—or even near one—to get the benefits of its plant life. Amazing Grass Pure Vanilla Protein Superfood Powder and Amazing Grass Sweet Berry Antioxidant Green Superfood Powder both contain spirulina and chlorella algae powders as well as other alkalizing greens and phytonutrients that’ll have you ready to take on the day—whether that means swimming through tropical waters or powering through your to-do list.
