I love smoothie bowls! They are very healthy and can be eaten at an meal. Here is a Green Smoothie Bowl Recipe that I love. ENJOY!

Green Smoothie Bowl Recipe:
Prep time 10 mins
Total time 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/4-1/2 ripe avocado

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, previously sliced and frozen

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen mixed Strawberries and Raspberries

  • 2 large handfuls spinach

  • 1 small handful kale  large stems/spine removed

  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups almond milk or for vegans unsweetened non-dairy milk (will depend on if your berries are frozen)

  • 1 Tbsp flax seed meal

  • Optional: 2 Tbsp salted creamy almond or peanut butter

TOPPINGS

  • 1-2 Tablespoons sunflower seeds

  • 1/2 C. Granola

  • Raw or roasted nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, etc.)

  • Shredded unsweetened coconut

  • Fresh berries

  • Raisons

Instructions

  1. Add all smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Add more almond milk (or water) to thin.

  2. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more ripe banana (or maple syrup) for added sweetness, more spinach for a bright green hue, or almond milk for creaminess.

  3. For the green smoothie I used strawberries, which let the green color come through more. For the purple bowl I used darker berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries).

  4. For more protein, add nut butter! This also offsets / enhances the natural sweetness of the smoothie.

  5. Divide between 2 serving bowls and top with desired toppings!

  6. Best when fresh, though leftovers can be kept in jars in the fridge for up to 1-2 days.
