Green & good minty avocado smoothie bowl

It’s creamy, it’s dreamy. It’s green and  it’s good. I love smoothie bowls for many reasons, some of which are:

1.  I can get me fruits & veggies in something that tastes as good as ice cream.

2. They give me a chance to be creative and try interesting combinations.

3. There are so refreshing and packed with vitamins!

This bowl has quite a bit in it, but you can easily alter this recipe to whatever you have on hand. All most recipes are anyways, are personal preferences. I always end up taking bits and pieces from recipes that sound good, but don’t always follow them to the T and just use them as guiding posts. Feel free to do that with this one and enjoy!


Ingredients: 

  • ½ an avocado
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ frozen pineapple or mango
  • Handful (or two) of kale
  • 1 inch by 1 inch cube of fresh ginger
  • A little bit of mint
  • ½ tsp spirulina
  • ½ cup plain greek yogurt 
  • ½ cup coconut water
  • 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1 tbsp flax seed
  • Optional toppers: ¼ cup muesli or granola, shredded coconut, bee pollen, and blueberries

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients (starting with the frozen stuff on the bottom) into the blender, and blend on high until thick and creamy.
  2. Place into a bowl and top with your favorites.

Note:

-You may have to stop blending part way through to stir mixture and scrape the sides of the blender.

-Depending on what blender you have, you might have to add more coconut water. I like to keep the coconut water to a minimal amount because that is what makes the smoothie extra thick! Sometimes this requires patience with the blender, but it is so worth it!

-Make sure not to leave a trace of smoothie behind and definitely lick your spoon.
