Smoothie Bowls are all the rage at the moment, probably because they’re the prettiest breakfast item around! I don’t know about you, but I’m guilty of spending a lot longer than I should scouring the smoothie bowl hashtag on Instagram. I just love them.
But apart from being pretty, they’re super good for you and an amazing way to pack in your fruit and vegetables. Especially if you’re following a vegan diet, smoothies and smoothie bowls are an easy way to pack in greens and vitamins that otherwise you might be chewing for hours.
I created this little masterpiece for breakfast this week, so I wanted to share with you guys and give you some inspiration to make your own!
I decided to go for a green smoothie this particular day – they’re definitely my favourite, the greener the better!
So for the smoothie base I added the following to my Nutribullet:
- 1 ripe banana (look for the brown spots on the skin, that indicates it’s ripe)
- 1 apple
- 2 large oranges
- 1 kiwi fruit
- 4 handfuls of kale
- a splash of filtered water
- a teaspoon of ground flax
- a teaspoon of pea protein
- a teaspoon of baobab powder
- half a tea spoon of tumeric
I then whizzed all of this together and then I transferred it to a bowl and decorated the top with some more chopped fruit, some chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, ground flax and sliced almonds. It was delicious!!
Baobab also contains zinc, essential fatty acids, phosphorus, protein and vitamin B complexes, so it’s the perfect way to get tonnes of vitamins and minerals in one hit! I added it into my smoothie bowl along with ground flax, chia seeds and some pea protein powder.
Plants are honestly so cool.
