Green Smoothie Bowl with Kiwi and Shredded Coconut


I’ve been wanting to make a smoothie bowl for a while, but I kept resisting the impulse. I sort of felt the same way about them that some people do about the cronut: It sounds great, in theory. It’s probably delicious in practice. But it’s also one of those “trendy,” “hip” things that everyone seems to be making. So I didn’t feel like jumping on the bandwagon.

Well, let me tell you…sometimes jumping on the bandwagon is worth it. At least in the case of this smoothie bowl, I found that to be true. It comes together super fast: Just throw a handful of spinach, half a banana, an avocado, a few dates and a pinch of matcha green tea powder in a blender, give it a spin, and then top it with slices of remaining banana, kiwi and shredded coconut if you so desire. You can also add some raspberries if you have them on hand; I found that it doesn’t do anything to hurt the aesthetic.

It’s fun to eat this with a spoon and also with a straw, just like you would with a milkshake.

Green Smoothie Bowl with Kiwi and Shredded Coconut


Handful of spinach (or kale)
1 avocado
1/4 cup Kefir or yogurt
1/2 cup almond milk (or another milk of your choice)
1/4 cup chopped pineapple, fresh or frozen
1/4 cup mango (I used frozen)
1/2 banana
2-3 dates, pitted
1 tsp matcha powder
1 tsp chia seeds
Kiwi, raspberries, banana slices and shredded coconut for topping


Place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth. Pour into a bowl and top with pieces of kiwi, whole raspberries, banana slices and shredded coconut.

    Oh, my goodness. I totally just drooled at that first photo! You are such a creative chef and talented photographer 🙂 I’m a huge fan of raspberries, even though they aren’t in season, and the way you prepare it here is perfection. I’m so sad because I have every single one of the ingredients – but no blender! Awww.

    Thanks for sharing such a great recipe. By the way, I just discovered your blog and absolutely love it! I can’t wait to see more recipes in the future. 🙂 Have a great week!
