Green Smoothie Bowl

Green Smoothie Bowl

This has all the goodness of a green smoothie but in a bowl. This is a great way to get your fruits and veggies in but somehow is more satisfying than a traditional green smoothie… must be the toppings! I hope you enjoy!

The Main Ingredients

  • 2 ripe frozen bananas
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup frozen mangoes
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 4 scoops of It Works! Greens

The Toppings

Like with all recipes that include toppings, these are completely interchangeable based off of what you like or what you have on hand. For this recipe and most of my others, I usually add about a tablespoon of each topping as I usually add quite a few for variety.

The toppings I included mostly focused on protein and healthy fats (pretty typical for me) so I included a good amount of nuts and seeds as follows:

  • almond slices
  • chia seeds
  • pumpkin seeds
  • hemp seeds
  • shredded coconut

I also needed a little added sweetness

  • fresh strawberries slices
  • fresh pineapple slices

The How-To

You guys can probably guess this but put all the main ingredients in your high powered blender (the NutriBullet is what i use). You’ll only want to start out with 1 cup of orange juice. You’ll want the final result to be thick; if it is to thick to blend add additional water until you get the consistency you like. You can use anything other nut milk or even water as a liquid if that is your prefence.

Once everything is blended, add it to a bowl and try to make the surface smooth with a spoon. Now design your masterpiece by topping your smoothie with your choice of nuts, seeds, granola, fresh fruit, etc. Make it pretty so it’ll taste better.

Next, snap a Instagram pic if your “extra” like me and hashtag it #chloevrecipes (This is not a thing yet so help a sista out and use the hashtag thing so that this non-thing can become a thing. It’ll be fun.)

NOTE: This is meant to serve two people. It is roughly 509 calories each serving if you use the same toppings and liquid.  The approximate macros are below for those who care. If you are looking for more protein, feel free to add your favorite protein powder to the blender when blending your main ingredients. ItWorks has a great plant-based protein powder that you can order here.
