The best way to get your servings of fruit or veggies in for the day – is by drinking them. You wont taste the spinach in a smoothie and it is a lot easier to drink a huge handful of spinach than eat it with a fork. I personally think half of the fun of a smoothie bowl is not only eating it, but decorating it. And since I am all about the toppings and little crunchy extras you can imagine how much I am in my element.
Its definitely no master piece but today I am featuring my “green hulk” smoothie bowl. It’s a keeper!
GREEN HULK serves 1
1 frozen banana
1 kiwi fruit
handful spinach or kale (LOTS)
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tsp GREENS powder
1 Tbs chia seeds
(OPTIONAL) 1 Tbs cacao powder
Note: The cacao will make it more of an unattractive greeny brown colour :)
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Add more milk if you desire. Should be nice and thick so you can scoop it with a spoon! Top with fresh fruit, coconut, chia seeds, nuts or buckinis and enjoy!! Go NUTS! Literally – nuts will improve the protein and healthy fat content significantly and make it a nutritional powerhouse and great wholesome post workout meal or snack.
