Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl

This Whole30 and paleo Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl is low in sugar, packed with gut healing nutrients, and so thick and yummy. 

Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl

I know what you are thinking. Bone broth in a smoothie?? What in the actual eff…

I know, I know. But you gotta have some trust because this smoothie bowl is seriously delicious and you cannot taste the bone broth at all.

With all the holiday stress and treats over the past few weeks, my gut is in need of some quality nutrients and healing so I’ve been trying to incorporate as much bone broth into my diet as possible. While this can mean drinking it straight up or incorporating them into soup recipes, I decided to get a bit more creative by making this Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl.

Not only is this Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl full of nourishing nutrients from the bone broth, both turmeric and ginger are anti-inflammatory and are known superfoods that soothe digestion and immune boosters.

Best of all, this recipe is sweetened and thickened with a cooked sweet potato and I did not find that I needed to add any additional sweeteners, making it Whole30 and sugar detox friendly. However, if you are looking for a bit more sweetness, you can add some honey.

If you are looking to switch up your breakfast routine with a healthy and delicious smoothie, I hope you give this recipe a try. Have fun customizing with your favorite toppings as well. I sprinkled in some frozen blueberries, toasted coconut chips, sliced almonds, and some almond butter, and it was dang tasty!
