Green smoothie bowl

IMG_20160411_093521.jpg

This smoothie bowl doesn’t taste green at all! It’s so simple and quick to make. You could take it on the go as a regular smoothie or serve it as I have in a bowl, topped with fruit, nuts and seeds. It’s best to use ripe banana and kiwi for this smoothie to give natural sweetness.

For the smoothie

  • 2 small eating apples
  • 1 kiwi (peeled and chopped)
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 banana
  • 100ml almond milk

For the topping

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon dried fruit and nuts

Method

  1. Peel, core and chop the apple and add to a smoothie maker or blender
  2. Add the kiwi, banana, spinach and almond milk
  3. Blend until smooth
  4. Serve in a bowl topped with sliced banana, chia seeds and the dried fruit/nut mix
  5. Enjoy!

Mango Breakfast Smoothie

IMG_20160324_125207 (1).jpg

I love mangoes! They are completely delicious and great for naturally sweet smoothies. I topped this smoothie with dried fruits, nuts and chia seeds. I think this would be a great smoothie to have before a morning workout (or lie in), before having a decent breakfast later on. Or to make it more substantial, you could turn it into a smoothie bowl and add fresh fruit, granola or muesli. I use a Breville ‘Blend Active’ to make my smoothies in single portions, I think they’re great and there’s very little washing up afterwards.

For 1 mango smoothie you will need

1 ripe mango, peeled and cubed

150 ml of plant milk

1 tablespoon chia seeds

A handful of dried fruit and nuts

Method

  1. Peel and cube the mango and place in the blender
  2. Add the plant milk
  3. Blend until completely mixed
  4. Depending on what consistency you like, you may want to add more plant milk
  5. Pour into your favourite glass and sprinkle with chia seeds, fruits and nuts
