Smoothie bowls are the perfect breakfast treat.
They are so simple to make and you can switch them up with any ingredients you like!
Your favourite smoothie bowl will look different in the summer than in the winter based on what's in season, so don’t be afraid to try new things.
In this recipe we use cauliflower florets because they bring a creaminess and add extra nutrients - but you can also try using avocado, spinach and kale instead, or even cucumber!
If you don’t have any frozen fruit on hand, that's okay, you can use fresh fruit as an alternative - simply reduce the amount of milk you use and add ice.
Servings: 2-4 people
Cook time: 10 minutes
● 1 sliced banana, frozen
● 1/2 cup cauliflower, steamed then frozen
● 1 cup plum chunks, frozen
● 1 cup blueberries, frozen
● 1/4 cup milk or water
Put all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and whirl until smooth.
Pour the smoothie into bowls, garnish with coconut, granola, nuts, or a nut butter of your choice, and enjoy!
Substitutions: If you don’t have frozen fruit on hand, use whatever fresh fruit is available, reduce the milk, and just add ice. You can replace the cauliflower with spinach or avocado.
To store: Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the fridge, or freeze in ziplock bags and store for up to 3 weeks. Simply set on the counter and eat when thawed.
Leftover tips: Freeze the leftovers in a single layer and use a spoon to scrape it into a container and you’ve got shaved ice! You can also blend a scoop of smoothie with soda water for a homemade fruity beverage.
