Healthy breakfast smoothie bowls

Healthy breakfast smoothie bowls

If you’re one of those people who just can’t find the time for breakfast, you’re not alone. These quick, easy, and best of all, super healthy smoothie bowls will be your new go-to.

Ingredients:

Note: Ingredients are interchangeable to your personal tastes. Smoothie bowls just need a combination of veg, fruit, protein, fat, and liquid, plus topping. Mix and match a balance of ingredients to create your favourite while keeping in mind portion sizes.

Fruits: For smoothie bowls, frozen fruits work best due to the thicker consistency they create. Try:

  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Mango
  • Banana
  • Oranges
  • Melons
  • Pineapple
  • Kiwi
Vegetables: If you’re worried about the taste of vegetables in your smoothie, they are generally overpowered by the flavours of the fruits.  Try:

  • Carrots
  • Cucumber
  • Celery
  • Beets
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Ginger (fresh)
Protein:

  • Protein powder of your choice
  • Greek yogurt
  • Chia/hemp seeds
Fats:

  • Avocado
  • Nuts
  • Coconut oil
Liquids:

  • Water
  • Milk
  • Almond Milk
  • Soy milk
  • Coconut water
Topping:

  • Unsweetened coconut shavings
  • Granola
  • Sliced fruit
  • Seeds/nuts
Method:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Use liquids sparingly for thicker, spoon consistency. Blend.
  2. Pour in bowl and top with toppings of your choice.
