The perfect summer smoothie bowl!
Smoothie bowls have become a craze recently. They’re sweet, refreshing, healthy and taste absolutely delicious. There are so many different combinations to choose from, from the base of the bowl to the toppings so be sure to experiment!
Here is our absolute favourite recipe:
For the smoothie:
1 frozen banana
A handful of spinach (you won’t be able to taste this, it just adds extra goodness to the bowl)
A handful of blackberries and blueberries
For the toppings:
One teaspoon of chia seeds
One teaspoon of desiccated coconut
Three sliced strawberries
Half a sliced banana
Blend together the frozen banana, spinach and berries (you can choose any other fruit). The frozen banana creates a smooth, creamy texture. You may need to add some milk or water to help your blender, we like to add almond milk for extra creaminess but other milks, Greek and natural yogurt also work well!
When the smoothie has reached your desired consistency – it should be thicker than a smoothie, between that and ice cream is perfect – pour it into a bowl and arrange your toppings. For an Instagram worthy smoothie bowl, arrange them perfectly! If you don’t care, then just chuck them all on!
The chia seeds add a little crunch and are also a fantastic plant based source of fibre and protein whilst the coconut adds some healthy fats.
You can add nuts, peanut butter, cacao nibs – really anything you fancy! This is just our favourite recipe.
For a more tropical smoothie bowl, replace the berries in the smoothie with pineapple and melon and top with kiwi, mango and coconut. Absolute perfection!
