Simple Health in a Bowl

Green Smoothie bowl 

Continuing on from my nut butter post, I am including a basic recipe for making my favourite smoothie bowl.  I have kept it super simple for those of you who have not made one before, but once you feel more confident you can begin to include more exotic ingredients and supplements and perfect your toppings.

Green Smoothie Bowl

100 g frozen mango

100g fresh baby spinach

1 banana sliced (frozen in advance – see note in recipe)

1.5 dl coconut milk

If you have a powerful, and strong!, blender you can add the frozen fruit and pulse into a fine crumb. N.B. I wouldn’t recommend this if you have a blender with a plastic drive coupling -I managed to completely destroy a blender trying to break up the frozen mango! If you are not sure whether your blender can manage, simply use a fresh ripe banana and defrost your mango prior to use.

Add the coconut milk and spinach and blend until thick and creamy and there are no flecks of green.  A smoothie bowl should have a thicker consistency than a regular smoothie that you would drink.  If necessary add a little more milk if your mixture is too thick.

Finally pour into a bowl and decorate as you like.  I have kept the decoration above very simple, only shredded coconut and Finnish blueberries and buckthorn berries.
