How to make Arugula Quinoa Smoothie Bowl
Fresh Arugula is blended with unsweetened almond and banana.
Then, fold in cooked red quinoa to make this smoothie bowl wholesome and filling.
Lastly, top it with the seeds, fruits and nuts.
This is divine and so refreshing with required fiber, protein, calcium and it’s a complete health food.
I usually prefer green smoothie for my morning meal. Hence, I am glad to discover that Arugula need not be used only in salads but can be blended in smoothies. Whether its salad or smoothie Arugula is great health-wise and taste-wise.
Generally we blend Smoothie bowls with very little liquid to make it thick enough to spoon out from the bowl. However, this smoothie bowl has medium liquid consistency because I personally prefer it on a lighter side.
You may make it thicker by just reducing the quantity of almond milk to half of its mentioned measurement and enjoy this healthy and wholesome morning meal.
So get started with this smoothie bowl. I guarantee its going to make you happy. Also, you will make right choices of food the entire day once you start your day with it.

Another great healthy recipe!
You always come up with the most unexpected combinations!!! They really inspire me to make new dishes at home.
This looks delish! I’m not a big fan of smoothies because I find they can be too thick sometimes to drink. A smoothie bowl though, I can do! Plus I always feel fuller when I eat my calories as opposed to drinking them 🙂
I love quinoa and am always looking for new recipes. This is a great way to eat it for breakfast and probably keeps you full for the morning. I cannot wait to give this a try.
