Mean Green Smoothie Bowl

My latest obsession is green smoothies with toppings. As much as I love a liquid meal, I really like having something to crunch on…I guess I’ve just heard the saying “chew your juice” so many times – its essential to allow any liquid meal to be broken down by the enzymes in your saliva. So I’ve been incorporating toppings into my green smoothies and eating them out of a bowl! It’s a fun and different way to incorporate green smoothies into your diet.

Here’s my go-to green smoothie recipe:

1 handful spinach

2-3 stalks kale

1 c. almond milk

1 frozen banana

1/2 c. frozen blueberries

1 tbsp. almond butter

1 tsp. spirulina or chlorella (optional)

1 tbsp. maca powder (optional)

And here are a list of suggested toppings:

  • Granola (this is my FAVE)
  • Cereal (I like rice puff cereal the best :))
  • Hemp seeds
  • Raisins
  • Ground flaxseed
  • Coconut
  • Dry oats – maybe a little strange but sooo good!
  • Chopped almonds or other nuts/seeds

Basically, just blend up your smoothie ingredients, pour into a bowl and top with whatever floats your boat! It’s soo freaking good, don’t be scared away by the color!

Here’s to a happy, healthy hump day! Two more days and I’ll be soaking up some Arizona sunshine!
