I've been super into smoothie bowls lately, especially after I tried this concoction and discovered how easy it is to create dessert for breakfast. I recently have had a ton of spinach in my fridge, so I thought for my second time around I would try a green smoothie bowl... To my surprise, it was so delicious! Unlike kale or arugula, spinach really has no taste when blended in a smoothie, so it's the perfect little trick to add for extra nutrients.
I stuck to my tried-and-true smoothie elements, like Almond Milk, plain greek yogurt, and a small frozen banana, and then added the fruit of a whole mango and an extra big handful of spinach. The bright colored mango combined with the super green spinach made my smoothie almost neon, and then the combo of fresh mango, yogurt, milk, and a frozen banana made this smoothie incredibly creamy.
What you'll need:
2 tbsp greek yogurt
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 small frozen banana
1 giant handful of spinach
chia seed/hemp seed
Blend everything together, adding more yogurt or less milk depending on thickness. Frozen bananas work better to add creaminess to the smoothie, and make it colder which is always a bonus! Add toppings of your choosing (other great options would be other berries, coconut shavings, granola, honey or agave, etc.)
I topped my smoothie bowl with blueberries and slivered almonds, which were a really great combo that added a delicious crunch to my bowl. Something about crunching or actually chewing makes a smoothie bowl a lot more satisfying and makes me feel fuller for some reason. I usually added chia or hemp seeds to my smoothie too for extra fiber or protein.
