Some stories are magic, the kind of magic that bridges the gap between reality and otherworldliness, enveloping us in wonder. Like a fairy in a fairy tale, this Blue Rose Fairy Smoothie Bowl brings magic to ordinary mornings with a dreamy blend: frozen banana for sweetness; chia seeds for an omega-3 boost; creamy nut or seed butter; a splash of plant-milk; antioxidant-rich frozen blueberries; and, last but not least, a dash or two of Blue Majik,* to create an ethereal blue hue.

*Blue Majik is a proprietary organic extract of Arthrospira platensis (commonly known as spirulina). Its fairy-tale like blue hue is derived from phyocyanin (PC), a major light harvesting pigment of cyanobacteria (often called blue-green algae), which has been researched as a functional food.

Growing up I was a fan of fairy tales, especially Andrew Lang’s fairy books and other wonders like the Blue Rose Fairy Book. This Blue Fairy Smoothie Bowl is inspired by those tales and tastes dreamy, like soft-serve blueberry “nice cream.”

The creaminess and vibrancy of this bowl of blue make my day first thing in the morning. I opt to top it with banana “flowers,” fresh blueberries and/or edible flower petals to create something a bit more enchanting.

Blue Rose Fairy Smoothie Bowl

  • Author: Shannon
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Total Time: 5
  • Yield: 12 1x

Scale

Ingredients

Blue Rose Fairy Smoothie Bowl

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup plant-milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp nut or seed butter of your choice
  • up to 1/4 tsp Blue Majik or organic spirulina of your choice (optional)

Optional Toppings

  • Banana slices, edible flowers, blueberries or whatever your heart desires!

Instructions

  1. Add the frozen banana, frozen blueberries, nut or seed butter, plant milk, chia seeds and Blue Majik to a high-speed blender or food processor. Combine on low, pausing to scrape down the sides of the blender occasionally, and then whirling away a bit longer until the smoothie is thick and creamy. As the banana softens, the smoothie will come together more easily. Only add a splash of extra plant milk as needed, to enhance blending during this process. (Otherwise, you may end up with a thin smoothie bowl!)
  2. Transfer the Blue Rose Fairy Smoothie Bowl to a bowl. Add the toppings of your choice. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Always consult with a healthcare provider if you have questions regarding the use of spirulina and/or spirulina-derived products (like Blue Majik), e.g. pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult with a qualified healthcare provider prior to use. Although spirulina is purported to have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, some people may experience side effects such as GI upset. When in doubt, skip using Blue Majik. You will still have a lovely smoothie bowl!
