Wow, it has been awhile. Not many excuses except life has become very busy with two kiddos. Our little cub is almost ready to jump into the action, but until then we are mastering ways to keep her occupied so we can make yummy dishes in the kitchen together. Like this healthy green smoothie bowl!
The Cub loves to help in the kitchen. No task is too much for this girl. Here she helps Grandma DiDi strip the kale from the stem and places it in the blender.
Next up, spinach! More greens! We always talk about what green vegetables do for our bodies. She’s grown to enjoy them because she knows they will make her grow. This smoothie is packed with nutrient-dense foods. In addition to the greens, there is avocado, banana and flaxseed meal – power-packed!
Big scoop of frozen berries! The darker the berries the darker the smoothie.
Then she slowly adds the almond milk. Any milk will do!
She’s not a big fan of the blender, but it is ok to watch while Grandma Didi turns it on.
All chefs must try their dishes to make sure they taste just right.
Pour into a bowl and add whatever you fancy to the top! Make one of your own and share it with us!
Green Superhero Smoothie Bowl
Recipe from the Minimalist Baker
- 1/4 ripe avocado
- 2 medium ripe bananas (previously frozen)
- 1 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries
- 2 large handfuls spinach
- 1 small handful kale (stems removed)
- 1 1/2 – 2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk (we used almond milk)
- 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
- 2 Tbsp salted creamy almond or peanut butter (optional)
- Seeds or nuts
- Our crunchy Granola
- Shredded unsweetened coconut
- Fresh berries
- Honey for extra sweetness!
Add all smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Add more almond milk (or water) to thin.
Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more ripe banana (or maple syrup) for sweetness or more almond milk or avocado for creaminess.
Pour smoothie into bowl and add desired toppings!
