The best recipes I create are the ones when I come back from a trip full of inspiration or when I have some random products in my fridge that I try to combine. It’s so much fun to experiment in the kitchen. This blackcurrant smoothie bowl in such an example. I eat black currants way too little and when I ”found” them in my fridge a spark of inspiration hit me. These berries are healthy and delicious at the same time. I knew that this smoothie bowl would be a success before these berries even hit my blender. Are you ready for a delicious berry smoothie bowl?
How healthy are blackcurrants?
Blackcurrants are healthy. You think blue berries contain antioxidants? Blackcurrants too. But they also contain for example 150 mg vitamine C (per 100 grams). This will make you beautiful, but moreover will keep your body healthy.
Black currants are known for having high levels of antioxidants.
Fresh blackcurrants also contain (small amounts of) essential vitamins such as vitamin B2, vitamin B6 and vitamin B1.
Magnesium and calcium
Did you know you’re already getting in some magnesium and calcium with these berries?
This smoothie is really delicious! If you’re going to try this smoothie bowl, I would love to know! Just leave me a comment below, rate the recipe or tag your picture #thegreencreator on Instagram. I’d love to see your pictures.
