We love smoothie bowls that are packed with fibre, protein, healthy fats, and tons of antioxidants! There are many, many smoothie bowl recipes out there but we want to share our favourite! It's easy to "overdo" smoothie ingredients (for example, adding extra sugars), but the natural sweetness of the banana and dates makes it perfectly sweet! No honey, maple syrup, agave, or coconut sugar - remember, sugar is sugar. Also, it is a great way to get in your leafy greens - a whole 2 CUPS!
1 frozen ripe banana
1 cup soy or almond milk
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
2-4 dates (depending on your taste)
1 scoop protein powder (optional)
Berries, or other fruit
1 tbsp of nuts or seeds
Your favourite granola
1. Place ingredients into blender until smooth. Transfer into bowl
2. Top smoothie bowl with desired toppings. Enjoy!
Want to experiment? Here's another smoothie bowl we made using the same recipe, but with an extra 3/4 cup of frozen berries blended in! Different colour, but still delicious :) Toppings here are Naked Snacks granola and dried pineapple - YUM!
