Super Green Smoothie Bowl

Spring has sprung and we're craving cool, fresh, nourishing & refreshing foods. A green smoothie bowl ticks all of our boxes! 

Full of protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre and more. Its refreshing and a great way to start your day, for lunch, a pick me up or even a treat to end the day. 

This recipe is low in sugar and high in all of the good stuff.

Author: Minimalist Baker

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 ripe avocado
  • 2 medium ripe bananas 
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries 
  • 2 large handfuls spinach 
  • 1 small handful kale 
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 2 Tbsp salted creamy almond or peanut butter (optional)

 

Instructions:

  • Add all smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Add more almond milk (or water) to thin.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • For more protein, add nut butter! This also offsets / enhances the natural sweetness of the smoothie.
  • Divide between 2 serving bowls and top with desired toppings!
  • Best when fresh, though leftovers can be kept in jars in the fridge for up to 1-2 days.
