This super food smoothie bowl recipe is a healthy and filling way to get some goodness into your breakfast!
vegetables for breakfast
I love getting as many of my five-a-day fruits and vegetables as I can first thing in the morning.
But you know those mornings when you don't want toast or oatmeal, but you do want something filling?
Smoothies are lovely, but sometimes you just want to sit down and feel like you're eating more of a meal.
Enter the smoothie bowl.
This has been a breakfast internet sensation for a while now and it is a perfect way to get vibrant goodness in the morning.
Smoothie bowls are basically thick smoothies, often made more filling with a handful of raw porridge oats, but the magic happens when you put it into a bowl instead of a glass and add the toppings.
You can use your imagination and add all sorts of healthy toppings to a smoothie bowl: granola, fruit, chopped unsalted nuts, seeds, dried fruit, chia, linseeds, cacao nibs, bee pollen, coconut flakes, grated carrot, frozen berries....
Not only do they add healthy nutrients, but they mean you have to chew your smoothie so you feel more full and satiated.
I've added Lean Greens powder into my smoothie bowl.
It's a green wonder-powder that is filled with spinach, wheat grass, barley grass, cholorella, carrot powder, spirulina, broccoli, Siberian ginseng and green tea and it basically allows you to consume a table full of vegetables in seconds.
You can take the powder to top up your vitamins and minerals, aid gut health and help to beat bloating, and for extra energy.
You simply mix the powder with water (as I do most mornings) in order to feel refreshed and awake, with the surprising bonus that it doesn't taste bad at all - in fact it's quite a neutral/nice taste.
Quite surprising considering all the green goodness lurking in there. You can also use Lean Greens powder in smoothies and in my smoothie bowl!
One of my favourite ways to use Lean Greens powder, besides in a smoothie bowl, is to make a smoothie with one scoop of powder, a banana and a cup of coconut water. It is really really tasty (honest!) and in fact that's what I had for my breakfast this morning.
