A smoothie is a typical breakfast for me. However sometimes I find that I need a small mid-morning snack to tie me over until lunch, after a breakfast smoothie. If you are finding a smoothie doesn’t quite tie you over until lunch, you definitely should try out this smoothie bowl – a smoothie with a hearty kick! The addition of nuts and seeds add fibre, fat and PROTEIN to your typical smoothie. The smoothie itself is thicker than your typical smoothie that you’d drink through a straw. It’s also vegan and gluten-free. Give it a try!

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen banana (peeled and pre-sliced)
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/2 cup berries of choice
  • 1 tbsp hemp seed

Toppings

  • 2 tbsp sliced almonds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp pepita seeds
  • 1/4 cup berries

Directions

  1. Add banana, milk, spinach, berries and hemp together in blender. Don’t worry about getting it to a super-smooth texture – you want your product to be thicker than a typical smoothie.
  2. Top with almonds, chia seeds, pepita seed and berries…enjoy!
