Green Machine Smoothie Bowl
Okay, lets get honest about things.
Smoothies are super filling...for about ten minutes.
I love the idea of getting in multiple servings of fruits and vegetables before 10am. But if it takes time, money and effort to prepare a meal, and that meal doesn't keep me full for at least 2 hours - its quite frankly, dead to me.
Which is exactly why I'm all about that smoothie bowl life.
With a thicker smoothie base and whole, intact grains, nuts, & seeds to top it off - this tropical breakfast is sure to satisfy.
Kale, celery, ripe bananas, berries, ground flax, hemp hearts, chia seeds, oats, walnuts, unsweetened coconut and low-glycemic granola too - I never get sick of this thick & creamy green machine.
Prep time: 10 miN
Total time: 10 min
Smoothie Makes: 2 Bowls
For the Smoothie
2 ripe/spotty bananas (peeled and frozen)
1.5 cups frozen berries of choice (can also do frozen mango for a greener smoothie)
2 large handfuls kale
3 stalks celery, roughly chopped (previously frozen is ideal)
2 Tbsp ground flax/flax-meal
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup rolled oats
2 scoops plant-based protein powder of choice
1.5-2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk
Optional: 1-2 Tbsp of almond, cashew, sunflower or peanut butter
Toppings for each individual bowl:
1 tsp chia seeds
2 Tbsp hemp hearts
Sliced mango or banana
2 Tbsp walnut pieces
1/2 cup muesli or low-glycemic granola (like my homemade Cinnamon Crunch Granola)
1 Tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes
Place all smoothie ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until thick and smooth in texture - using the tamper to ensure there are no unblended chunks. Add more non-dairy milk if needed.
Evenly divide the smoothie between 2 bowls, and top each bowl with the listed toppings - for added protein, healthy fats & overall satiety.
Grab a spoon, dig in & ENJOY!
