Green Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie bowls are a heartier and more filling breakfast than a smoothie. Load up on toppings - my favourites are homemade granola and shredded coconut. Recipe makes one very large or two smaller smoothie bowls.

Ingredients

  • 1 banana (can use a fresh banana or a banana that has been frozen in pieces)
  • handful fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup sliced frozen peaches
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1/3 cup milk, plant-based milk, or water (may need to increase to 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 pitted date, for sweetness (optional)
  • your choice of toppings, see note below

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend on high. If mixture is too thick, try adding small increments of additional milk/water and blending in between, until desired thickness is reached. The trick is that you want the mixture to be thicker than a smoothie, almost an ice-cream-like consistency.

  2. Using a spoon or spatula, scoop smoothie into 1 very large or 2 small bowls.

  3. Sprinkle your choice of toppings. Serve.


Recipe Notes

  1. You should either include frozen peaches or a frozen banana in this recipe - it will make the smoothie bowl nice and chilled. However, if you use both fresh peaches and a fresh banana, I would then recommend adding a few ice cubes.
