Green Smoothie Bowl


A friend of mine who recently got a Nutribullet was telling me about how she often overloads the blender, winding up with an extra-thick smoothie. I can relate to the phenomenon of eating a smoothie with a spoon, as I love to cram as much good stuff into mine as possible.

It makes me snicker a bit, though, that the concept has become a whole new creature of its own: a smoothie bowl. There are recipes all over the internet, and a local raw foods place just put out a newsletter announcing an entire class on creating smoothie bowls.

Seriously?! Isn't a smoothie bowl just an extra-thick smoothie?

Well this morning I decided to intentionally make a bowl-worthy smoothie. I altered my proportions, and then tried to gussy it up with some toppings. It was super thick, creamy and delicious. I still think the whole notion of dubbing the concoction a smoothie bowl a bit funny, yet here I am sharing my smoothie bowl recipe with you ;)

Green Smoothie Bowl

2 cups baby spinach or baby kale
1/2 ripe avocado
1/2 frozen banana, cut into chunks
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or water
1 scoop hemp protein powder (optional
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tbs. raw almond butter or organic sunflower seed butter
handful of ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until thick and smooth. Spoon into a bowl and top as desired (I went with a couple of raw almonds and raw cacao nibs.
