Smoothie bowl

Guess who made a smoothie bowl??? I did!!

In case you don’t know what a smoothie bowl is, it’s a smoothie…poured into a bowl, topped with fruits and seed. Not really rocket science, is it? Yet somehow people always make it seem like it is really complicated.

My smoothie bowl recipe was inspired by Minimalist Baker. She has the most amazing smoothie recipes on her blog. Unlike her recipe, my smoothie bowl has a layer of bananas at the bottom. I love bananas as you know and I felt like this made it more filling.

Smoothies bowls are great if you have your breakfast options are limited by an intolerance. They can be vegan-friendly, gluten-free and lactose-free. It depends what you want to put inside. Plus, it’s a great way for me to get some extra nutrients.

Ingredients

Smoothie

  • 1 large handful of Kale
  • 2 large handful of Spinach
  • 1 cup of frozen mixed berries
  • 2 cups of soya milk
  • A tablespoon of honey/maple syrup
  • 2 bananas ( You can save some to use as toppings for your bowl as well)

Toppings

  • A handful of fresh blueberries
  • Two tablespoons of Food Doctor Seed Blend ( To be fair, you can get any types of seeds, pumpkins, sunflower etc..I happened to get this mix, because it had everything it in and was wheat-free)

Instructions

  1. Get two clean deep bowls, this recipe will make two portions.
  2. Slice the two bananas and equally divide them at the bottom of each bowl. Now put the bowls aside and prepare the smoothie.
  3. Add all the smoothie ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. If you think it’s too thick you can add water or some more soya milk.
  4. Now divide the smoothie into the two bowls and sprinkle the blueberries and seeds.

I had some left over, so I stored it in the fridge for later. You can mix and match whatever fruit or vegetables you like. Kale and Spinach are more likely to give you a bright green while berries are more likely to give you a darker red.
