Smoothie bowls are all the rage these days, have you noticed? My social media feeds are full of smoothie bowl pictures and I really like it. I love seeing the million and three different combinations that people come up with to make these pretty and healthy meals, and I felt so inspired that I created and tested a smoothie bowl recipe of my own to share. And since the first three ingredients give it a rich green hue in addition to a refreshing tropical zing, I have dubbed it Tropical Green Smoothie Bowl.
This recipe makes enough smoothie base for one large bowl or two smaller ones. I would recommend increasing the toppings if you want to split it up, because the toppings are what make it so fun! There needs to be plenty to share. And if you want to enjoy it on the go you can also make this as a regular smoothie by leaving off the toppings and increasing the liquid by 1/4 cup or so. Slap a lid and straw on it and hit the road!
Look at all those yummy, healthy ingredients just waiting to be joined together.
Also, my kids picked daisies and I love daisies.
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1 kiwi peeled and quartered
- 1 cup fresh baby spinach
- 1 1/2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 1/2 cups orange juice
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1 kiwi peeled and sliced
Place the first six ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth (about 20-30 seconds in my blender). Pour into a bowl and top with the shredded coconut and remaining kiwi. Enjoy immediately.
