The Best Superfood Powders for Insta-Worthy Smoothie Bowls
If you’re anything like me, you’ve been seriously lusting over the stunning smoothie bowls that have been popping up all over Instagram the last few years. I’ve been a smoothie addict for years, so when these beautiful bowls started showing up, I had to know more. How were people making these amazing colorful creations? From hot pink to aqua to purple, Instagrammers were showing off the most vibrant smoothies and I needed to get in on the action.
Trying out with @unicornsuperfoods 🦄⚡️🔮 This is a layer with pitaya powder, a layer with black goji powder, and topped with coco whip 😍☁️☁️ . . . . . . #unicornsuperfoods #superfoods #pitaya #smoothiebowl #myunicornlife #foodporn #mykitchen #plantbased #plantlife #bananas #flashesofdelight #morningslifethese
Turns out, the secret to the colors isn’t artificial dyes or chemical-filled coloring, but actually uber nutritious superfood powders! Made from nutrient powerhouses like acai berries, algae (yes really!), and tropical fruit, these powders are not only healthy but also have bright hues that will make your breakfast look like a work of art.
I recently got the chance to sample powders from three awesome companies, and I’m psyched to share them with you!
Based in Sweden, with shipping available worldwide, Rawnice is a badass business that aims to make wellness fun, rather than restrictive, and make superfoods available to everyone! In the words of owner, Helene:
“our Instagram feed is flooded with advanced yoga poses on a beach in Asia somewhere, perfectly manicured hand holding coconuts etc. That sh*t is so DAMN old and CLICHÈE… I’m all about the balance..and so is Rawnice.”
What I love most about Rawnice is their great selection. They carry powders I’ve never heard of before as well as the popular ones like Pitaya (for pink smoothies), Blue Spirulina (for blue smoothies), and Activated Charcoal (for black smoothies and detox drinks.
First off, get ready to say hello to the cutest packaging of all time!! I mean come on, these unicorn bags are adorable. But the goodness doesn’t stop there- this online shop, run by two sisters from Australia, offers up colorful superfood powders as well as cute smoothie bowl kits.
Their selection isn’t as wide as Rawnice, but the powders they do offer are awesome, and their DIY kits, which include a powder of your choice plus a coconut bowl and spoon and unicorn cookie cutter, are like catnip for smoothie lovers like myself.
Blue Chai sells amazing teas and colorful tea powders that will take your beverage game to the next level. I tried their Butterfly Pea Tea, which makes a beautiful royal blue tea that turns purple when you add citrus, and their Blue and Pink Matcha powders which are amazing for dyeing your smoothie bowls and making delicious drinks and lattes.
🌱 Bluechai blue tea is made from 100% organic blue flowers and lemongrass. It’s naturally blue without any additives or chemicals and can be used in cooking, baking and decorating. You can even change colour by adding lemon juice 🍋 Thank you dear @hummingexplorer for this nice post and caption 😘 we really love it!!!! 💙 #changing #colour #tea #roseinfusion #bluechai #roses #teatime #bluechai #natural #friends #party #organic #love #fun #blue #drink #happy #tealover #yummy #chill #goodtimes #tea #bluedrink #liquor #thirsty #glass #delicious #smile #bluematcha #matcha.blue
I had so much fun playing around with these amazing teas and powders! Not only do they turn your meals the most amazing colors, but they’re also so healthy and are all sold by awesome small businesses.
