Green Smoothie Bowl with Blueberries

greensmoothieWhenever I drink a green smoothie for breakfast, my internal organs feel like they’ve won the lottery. I walk out of my apartment and I look like one of those carefree people skipping down the sidewalk in commercials.

I literally had the thought this morning on the way to work: This is why people in California are so beautiful. They drink these every morning. I don’t know if I’m ready to make that commitment. But let me tell you…it’s an enticing thought.

When I made this smoothie bowl last night, I forgot to put in the banana. I tasted it and it was waaaay too bitter. I would recommend using a ripe banana and some extra sweetener like maple syrup or agave. You don’t need a lot and it will balance out the kale.

Anyway. I was about to go on about how great this smoothie is but I’m going to start sounding like I’m recruiting you for a smoothie bowl cult. All I can say is, you’ll do yourself and your morning happiness a big favor by making one.

Green Smoothie Bowl (from me, to you)

1 ripe banana
2 handfuls spinach leaves
1 handful kale leaves
1 cup berries (I used strawberries and blueberries, mixed)
1 1/2 cups almond milk
1 tsp maple syrup or agave
Sunflower seeds, shredded coconut, chia seeds, extra blueberries and hemp seeds for topping


Blend all the ingredients in a blender on high until smooth. Top with the sunflower seeds, shredded coconut, chia seeds, extra blueberries and hemp seeds. Enjoy!
