How to make any green smoothie bowl
- Prepare the ingredients. Peel, remove seed or chop the ingredients as needed. Cut bigger ingredients into smaller pieces to help your blender process them easier.
- Load up the blender. Place all the ingredients into your blender and cover with water. You can place all the ingredients first and add just enough water based on the blender size and quantity of ingredients. Make sure not to add too much water because your goal is to obtain a creamy and thick consistency.
- Mix ingredients in the blender. Once all ingredients are placed inside, start the blender on low speed. Slowly move to medium speed and later to high, or use the pulse function a few times or until everything looks smooth and creamy. Add a bit more water if needed and continue to blend until you obtain the desired consistency.
- Assemble then serve. Once the smoothie reaches the desired consistency, transfer into your favorite bowl and decorate with preferred toppings. Use a spoon to serve and share your smoothie bowl creation with others too!
Ingredients list for our spinach green smoothie bowl
Frozen Spinach – This green smoothie bowl is made with plenty of frozen spinach. Choose organic if possible.
Avocado – We use avocado as the base for this green smoothie, but also as a way to obtain that creamy and thick consistency. Avocado will help us blend a smoothie bowl that comes packed with healthy fats and fiber.
Cucumber Fabio – We use quite a few plants in this green smoothie bowl and cucumbers is one of them. Cucumbers are literally packed with many types of phytonutrients with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, just to name a few of their health benefits. They are good-for-you and not expensive to buy at all.
Carrot – Carrots are a nutritional powerhouse and eating carrots in raw form means even more nutrients for your system. With carrots you get a large spectrum of vitamins and minerals, plus antioxidants and fiber.
Celery Stick – I absolutely love using celery sticks in smoothies because they bring vitamins and minerals, as well a different groups of phytonutrients (including antioxidants). Go organic if possible since conventionally grown celery may have pesticides sprayed on them.
Fennel – Celery and fennel go hand in hand together, and I love to use them both in my smoothie recipes since they compliments each other in terms of beneficial nutrients and taste. Fennel is a bit sweet while celery is a actually a bit salty, but they both have almost the same fibrous texture.
Bok Choy – You can’t have a green smoothie without some type of green leaves, right?! This time I decided to go with bok choy leaves but feel free to use other types of leaves in case bok choy is not your thing.
Kiwi – Sweet and a bit sour, kiwi is a nice way to sneak-in even more nutrients like vitamin C, K and E (and a few others).
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – Smoothies are a great way to sneak-in healthy fats like extra virgin coconut oil. Other types of healthy fats include avocado (check!), nut butters, hemp seeds or chia seeds. Keep in mind that you actually need those good fats on a daily basis so why not consume them in smoothies!
Himalayan Salt – A little bit of salt goes a long way in smoothies. Salt helps balance those healthy fats from avocado and coconut oil.
Orange Skin – I like the subtle taste of fresh orange skin, in smoothies as and in different kinds of raw desserts. Make sure to use the skin from an organic orange, which is free of pesticide residues.
Water – Use enough water to cover the ingredients and a bit more to help your blender mix everything smoothly. Since we’re making a smoothie bowl, don’t use too much water or you’ll end-up with a smoothie that may be too liquid to eat with a spoon.
Toppings – I topped my green smoothie bowl with frozen berries, half a glass from yesterday’s red smoothie, coriander seeds, chopped cacao beans, and a few slices of fresh kiwi. This is the perfect spot to be creative and improvise, so feel free to use the toppings that you feel like using.
Best smoothie bowl toppings
- Sliced fruits – kiwi, banana, mango, pineapple, apricots, plums
- Berries – blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, blackberries, or sea buckthorn.
- Seeds – sunflower seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds.
- Nuts – walnuts, pecans, pine nuts or cashews.
- Herbs and Powders – cinnamon, cardamon, anise, mint, ginger.
6. *Others* – coconut chips, apple chips, raisins, dates, figs, dark chocolate.
