GREEN SMOOTHIE BOWL

Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are without a doubt the ultimate Instagram-able breakfast choice. But they also make your favourite smoothie recipe into a pretty hearty meal! And, they’re a great opportunity to use your superfoods, providing you with a nutrient-rich start to your day. Basically a condensed smoothie, these breakfast bowls use much less liquid and instead, rely on thicker ingredients such as avocado or greek yoghurt for their base, which gives a gorgeously creamy consistency. And the best bit – you can finish them off with ALL the toppings you like…

Here I’ve chosen a green smoothie, using a couple of handfuls of greens, an avocado and half a teaspoon of Spirulina. However, the recipe can easily be adapted to make an Acai bowl, using frozen berries, Acai powder, and greek yoghurt in the place of the avocado to make it thick. I’ve also suggested a few(!) toppings below…

Green Smoothie Bowl
Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free
(Makes one bowl).
1 Frozen banana
2 tbsp Greek Yoghurt
1/2 Avocado
1 big handful of Spinach 
1 handful of Kale 
1/2 cup Frozen Blueberries
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I use Sunwarrior, here
1/3 cup Almond Milk

Throw all of the ingredients in a Vitamix, NutriBullet or other blender, until smooth. Put the smoothie into a bowl and top with all of your favourite toppings! Enjoy.

      It’s still hit and miss for me – sometimes it’s a smoothie in a bowl as opposed to a smoothie bowl…! xx

          Avocado – thickens it up fantastic. Or add a little liquid at a time until you’re happy! xx
