Recipe: Magical smoothie bowls

“Life is too short not to eat raw,
and it’s even shorter if you don’t.”

(Marie Sarantakis)

It is literally my all-time favorite meal for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner. Made out of fresh, raw, whole food ingredients, it’s very versatile, super pretty, and absolutely delish: smoothie bowls.

You can become an artist by creating your smoothie bowl. Here are some of my good-to-know insider tips:

  • Mix leafy greens with fresh and frozen fruits to get the most out of nutrition.
  • It’s best to switch your greens on a regular basis as some contain mineral inhibitors (e.g. spinach, chard), and each of them provide a different spectrum of nutrients.
  • Prefer seasonal and local fruits and veggies.
  • Add in some super foods to boost nutritional quality (e.g. spirulina, chlorella, maca).
  • When plant based milk used, prep it either by yourself or buy calcium fortified products.
  • If you don’t have a high performance blender, use a hand blender: Let the frozen bananas thaw or use fresh ones, but less liquids to make a puree.

Ingredients (1 serving)

  • 1 handful greens (e.g. spinach, kale, chard, lettuce, etc)
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 2 cups fresh seasonal fruits (e.g. peaches, mango, berries, etc)
  • splash of water or plant-based milk
  • optional: 1 tsp superfood powder (e. g. spirulina, chlorella, maca, cacao)
  • toppings: fresh fruit, chia/hemp/flax seeds, shredded coconut, cacao nibs, goji berries, nuts, etc

Instructions

  1. Put the greens, frozen bananas, fresh fruits, liquid, and superfood powder into a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth and creamy.
    Advice: If the smoothie is too liquid, add more frozen banana. If it’s too solid, add more liquid.
  3. Pour into a bowl and decorate your smoothie with a variety of toppings. Serve immediately.

Heaven on earth!
Enjoy your raw, healthy fruit feast!
