Superfood Bowls: Buddha Bowls With Power

Buddha bowls are a hit on social media right now. Whether it’s Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, Buddha Bowls are on everyone’s lips in the truest sense of the word. No wonder, the bulging shells are tasty and healthy. But it gets even better – with the superfood bowls.

Superfood bowls for every situation

The trick with Buddha Bowls is that they combine the most important nutrients in one bowl. However, for an extra kick of vitamins and minerals, you can also combine them with superfoods such as chia, acai, or moringa. In this way, an already healthy meal becomes a real power food that not only fills you up but also contains all the nutrients that our body needs.

Recipe: Acai Goji Bowl

A superfood bowl for breakfast is just the right start to the day for the body. It provides everything we need and sweetens the start of the day with its taste.

Ingredients (for two superfood bowls)

  • 2 bananas (frozen or fresh)
  • 350 g raspberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 150 g goji berries
  • 2 tsp acai powder
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 2 kiwis
  • 1-star fruit
  • 2 tbsp chopped almonds
  • 1 tsp honey (optional)


Take the bananas, 250 grams of raspberries, and the acai powder, and puree everything in a bowl until smooth. Peel the kiwis and cut them into thin slices. Wash the star fruit thoroughly and cut it into slices as well. Finally, take two bowls, spread the pureed mass in them, and spread kiwi, star fruit, goji berries, chia seeds, and chopped almonds on top. If the superfood bowl is too sour for you, you can add a teaspoon of honey.
