Green Smoothie Bowls

Green Smoothie Bowls

I have to admit, I’m a little late to the smoothie bowl game. My husband and I drink green smoothies almost everyday for breakfast, but this is the first time I’ve actually made it a bowl. Inspired by the recipe in Sarah Britton’s My New Roots cookbook that I just got, I made these smoothie bowls as part of Lisa VipondThe Modern Proper and Rustic Joyful Food‘s Instagram contest #smoothiebowlparty2016.

I love the dark green color that the spirulina adds while also being a natural source of essential vitamins and minerals. I also added a spiral of apitherapy raw honey. This honey has never been heated or filtered and thus retains beneficial traces of pollen, propolis and beeswax not available in other types of honey.

[Makes 2 smoothie bowls]

Green Smoothie Base
2 bananas
2 pears (or apples)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil
1 tablespoon almond (or any other nut) butter
2 large handfuls of spinach (or your favorite kind of greens)
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger
1/2 cup coconut or almond milk (or enough to liquify ingredients in a high-speed blender)
3-4 ice cubes

Add-In Ideas
Handful of fresh or frozen berries (I used marionberries, blueberries and black raspberries)
Raw honey
Chia seeds
Unsweetened dried coconut
Slices of fresh fruit
Hemp seeds
Bee pollen
Maca powder

  1. Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until completely smooth.
  2. Pour green smoothie base into two bowls and top with your favorite add ins. If using spirulina and/or raw honey, swirl on top of green smoothie base and optional toppings.

Hi there,

You can use spirulina in place of blue algae in any of the recipes on this site. Hope that helps!
