One of my favourite breakfasts is a green smoothie bowl.
Yes, i’m one of those people.
Aside from the flavour, the beautiful vibrant colour and the stunning antioxidants contained within, I just love the thought of eating vegetables for breakfast.
Yes, I really am one of those people 🙂
Although this is a stunning breakfast to kick start the day, it would also make a beautiful afternoon tea or post workout recovery meal.
2 Cups Spinach
½ Medium Lebanese Cucumber (skin on)
2 Ripe Kiwi Fruits
½ Medium Banana
½ Ripe Small Avocado
Handful of nuts (approximately 8-12)
2 Tablespoons Cacao Nibs
2 Tablespoons Goji Berries
In a blender, add spinach, cucumber, 1 kiwi fruit, banana and avocado.
Add a ¼ cup of water to assist blender movement (note: high speed blenders such as a Vitamix may not need water). Water addition will create a thinner smoothie, so add in small quantities.
To Serve One:
Pour green smoothie into bowl.
Chop the second kiwi fruit then stir through smoothie.
Top smoothie bowl with nuts, amaranth* and cacao nibs.
* Amaranth is an ancient grain rich in B vitamins to assist with energy transport around the body. It is also a good source of fibre to keep bowels regular. Amaranth can be found in all health food stores.
