I love my morning oats, but sometimes I love other things too. A recent addition to my occasional home breakfasts (I eat most of them at work) is a green smoothie bowl. It took me a few tries before I settled on what has become my go-to green smoothie. The secret? Simple complexity. Simple with just a few (frozen) ingredients, complex with added superfood boosters. Ready? Let’s go.

When I lived in the Midlands, I lived a two-point-seven mile walk from the nearest semi-decent bar, and it was the only semi-decent bar around. Consequently, I didn’t go there very much – and so I didn’t go out and drink alcohol very often.

Since moving to Manchester, it’s now only a 10-minute walk to the nearest tram stop, which can have me in the city in about 30 minutes. Great, huh? Or, I can walk 20 minutes up the road and find several pretty good bars and pubs. I’m sure you can see where this is going? Yeah, my alcohol intake has definitely increased.

After several weekends of several nights out (I still rarely drink on a “school night”!) I realised that I was desperate for greens. Dark, leafy greens. And water. And vegetables. So desperate that I was willing to forgo my daily dose of oatmeal on several occasions! That’s bad. That’s like… deep level craving of nutrients. Because let’s face it – the only nutrient that alcohol is rich in is like.. stupidity. Or possibly chatter.
(Yes, I’m a stupid drunk, and a chatty one.)

Anyway. I’ve ended up making this green smoothie bowl several times a week. It’s both simple and complex all at the same time. This green smoothie is simple because you just need a banana, frozen spinach, and frozen pineapple – and you can sub the pineapple for an extra (half a) banana. It’s complex because I add superfood powders to really boost the nutritional punch. Did I mentioned that I love this smoothie bowl?

  • Banana = 1 fruit portion
  • Spinach = 1 vegetable portion
  • Superfood powder = more help towards your fruit and vegetable powders
  • Spirulina = a powerhouse of goodness

Kick start your morning with my go-to green smoothie bowl. Just frozen fruit, spinach, and some superfoods to really give your breakfast some oomph!

  • Author Luci Rebecca, Made by Luci
  • Serves 1
  • Calories 205

Ingredients

  • 1 banana (~100g), frozen
  • 100g spinach, frozen
  • 50g pineapple, frozen, optional *
  • 1 tbsp Bioglans Supergreens **
  • 1 tsp Tropical Spirulina **
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4-1/2 cup (60-120ml) dairy free milk

Directions

  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender, starting with the smallest amount of dairy free milk. Blend until smooth, adding more liquid as needed.
  2. Pour into a bowl and add as many toppings as you want! I like to add granola, fresh strawberries, kiwi and pumpkin seeds.

Notes

  • * Substitute for an additional half a banana if none you don't have any pineapple, of if you don't like the stuff
  • ** Use whatever your favourite superfood powders are - I just like these ones as they're quite sweet! My tropical spirulina is pineapple flavoured, so you might need to add additional sweetener if yours isn't
  • Nutritional information calculated with pineapple and 120ml of unsweetened cartoned coconut milk.
