Summer is knocking on the door and the days just keep getting warmer and warmer. We want you to stay fresh but nourished. So we came up with this green smoothie bowl recipe that's super easy to make and incredibly delicious.
Since we need good fuel to get the day started, I always put a big emphasis on having healthy recipes that you can quickly whip together first thing in the morning. This way you don't have to put too much effort or energy in cooking when you are rushing to get out of the door that early.
Smoothie bowls are the perfect recipe for breakfast during summer time. Bonus points if you throw in some leafy greens and make it a green smoothie bowl. You will be well nourished, refreshed and delighted with all the good stuff you can find in it.
Leafy and super greens come in all shapes, sizes and flavours, and most you can add to your smoothies. This time I decided to go with kale. We've talked a lot about all the nutrients and benefits derived from kale, and since I wanted to make our smoothie crazy healthy, it just seemed like the best choice.
If you are not a super fan of kale don't close this window just yet. Kale can be a bit bitter and strong in taste. So we added a few other ingredients that will overpower that taste and you will barely know it's there.
We need a ripe banana, avocado, almond milk and maple syrup to make it creamy and sweet. The smoothie bowl will come out quite thick. This way you can top it off with more fruit and a few other goodies.
I also added a scoop of protein powder just to make sure we are getting enough of the macronutrients we need through out the day. The added protein makes our green smoothie bowl a great post workout meal as well.
With this smoothie bowl, you get a bunch of nutrients and enough protein to replenish your body. And it is quite filling without making you feel heavy or sluggish once you are done eating. This is such a great way to get your day started!
I love making smoothie bowls for breakfast during the summer time. It seriously is the most refreshing thing you eat and probably the easiest to make as well. You need a blender and some chopping skills. Just put all the smoothie ingredients in the blender, slice your fruit for the toppings, pour in a bowl and decorate. That's pretty much it.
I don't think breakfast can get any easier than that. The best part is that it's so delicious it will seem you are having a treat instead of an actual breakfast. That's great for us adults but also perfect when you have to feed the little ones. They might even think it is ice cream with a funky colour but in reality, they are getting a good load of super greens in the form of a super healthy green smoothie bowl.
