Green Smoothie Bowls are what it’s all about!
Green Smoothie bowls are all the rage right now and I’ll tell you why! They’re filling and surprisingly delicious, so don’t let the green color scare you. I’ll be mixing in a lot of fruits and veggies to make this a completely satisfying snack or meal!
2-3 cups baby Kale
½ cup of coconut water
½ cup of frozen mango chunks
1 whole frozen banana
half an avocado
First I’ll take a handful of baby kale – about 2-3 cups and add it into my blender. Next I’ll add in ½ cup of coconut water, ½ cup of frozen mango chunks, 1 whole frozen banana, and half an avocado. The avocado will give this smoothie a creamy texture and the healthy fats will help keep you full! I’ll give it a whirl until it’s blended into a nice and thick smoothie. I want the smoothie to be thick because it needs to hold up the toppings in the bowl.
Speaking of toppings I’ll work on those next. I’ll set my smoothie aside and here, I have some chia seeds, raspberries, coconut flakes, and some mangoes and kiwis that I’ll thinly slice. The thinly sliced fruits will make it easier to arrange later.
Finally it’s time to decorate my smoothie bowl with these fun toppings! I’ll take some chia seeds and carefully sprinkle it in a thin line. The fiber from the kale and these chia seeds will really help my digestive system. Next I’ll artfully sprinkle in some shredded coconut flakes, line it with some raspberries, then fan out my kiwi slices, and mangoes on the side, and voila! Art in a bowl. It’s almost too pretty to eat. But i’ll eat it anyways!
Yummm! This is so refreshing and i love how the thick smoothie coats the fruit perfectly, giving it a really creamy bite. I love these smoothie bowls because they’re so versatile, and depending on my mood, I can top it with whatever I’d like. What would you top your green smoothie bowls with?
