Super Green Smoothie Bowl and a dusty student radiator
I never really understood smoothie bowls bar the fact that they looked very pretty. Why bother with a bowl I always thought – you can drink a smoothie waay quicker in a glass.
But then I made one. And they’re actually amazing.
I often gulp down a smoothie in about two minutes – and sometimes it just doesn’t satisfy. This is thicker, even more nutrient dense depending on what you put in – aaaand you can fit more toppings on! Always a fan of that, plus I love that you’re having a big bowl of raw for breakfast. So much better for you than sugar filled cereal.
I really upped the greens in this one because I needed a bit of a detox after a hectic week, so swap in some more fruit if you’d like it sweeter – frozen berries would be great or some pineapple. A huge fan of wheatgrass I added a tsp of that too. A natural food source of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and the green plant pigment chlorophyll it’s a great way to add healthy nutrients and fiber to your diet, plus it tastes good and is sweet, so is a good superfood to start with I found – Chalk Board Mag has a great Superfood Spotlight section which is good to get an overview of superfoods if you fancy getting your knowledge on!
– 2 frozen bananas
– a big handful of spinach
– a big handful of kale
– tsp wheatgrass powder (can omit)
– tsp almond butter
– coconut water
– toppings of flaxseed, gluten free oats, frozen blueberries and goji berries
Simply blend all of the ingredients in a blender until thick and creamy before adding toppings! Coconut water is a great liquid to add more of if you want a thinner consistency, and ice is great to thicken – an ice cream esque texture is what you’re aiming for. Enjoy with granola, oats, fruit, superfoods or whatever the hell ya fancy.
