I feel a tad cliché posting a recipe for a smoothie bowl when half the internet is doing the same. Yet, smoothie bowls have become my salivation in the mornings when a pile of work looms heavy on my mind and I’m short on time. Also, lets be honest we can all do with more greens in our diets and spinach is such a great neutral tasting vegetable.
I can say with certainty that your child or man child won’t notice the leafy green that lurks in their drink. The sweet tropical flavor of mango and blueberry is the front runner in the taste department.
If you have protein powder, feel free to use it. I, however, are too cheap to spend the twenty or so bucks so my go to is peanut butter or almond butter. I like the saltiness it adds to the smoothie bowl. Don’t skimp on whatever form of protein you choose though, otherwise you won’t stay full for as long. At least, that’s how it is for me.
Now let’s talk toppings AKA my favorite part! For this recipe, I chose flax seeds, chia seeds, coconut chips and frozen mango chunks. Use this as a guide and rummage through your own pantry to see what you have. The sky is the limit. Enjoy!
