Green Smoothie Bowl with Bananas

I felt so good yesterday after drinking my green smoothie, I thought, why not keep the magic going? So this morning, I decided to spoof off a recipe I saw on Instagram and make a kale smoothie bowl with bananas.

Once again, I can’t emphasize enough the importance of a ripe banana–especially if you use kale. It adds the necessary sweetness makes you forget that you’re essentially drinking a bowl of blended up lettuce.

I was a little wary of how the granola, chia seeds, hemp seeds, bananas and almond butter would taste together. But as it turns out, it’s a winning combo. Especially the granola, bananas and almond butter. I tried to get the perfect bite going on my spoon.

Also, a trick of the trade for eating smoothie bowls: I like to use a straw and get most of the liquid out, and then take a spoon and go for the toppings. It’s kind of like being a little kid and standing at the edge of a ball pit and jumping in. Or at least, it feels the same to me.

Here’s a song to get your weekend started off right.

Green Smoothie Bowl with Bananas (from me, to you)


1 cup kale leaves
1 ripe banana
1 cup blueberries
1 1/2 cups almond milk
1/2 cup yogurt (I used coconut yogurt)
Granola, chia seeds, hemp seeds, banana slices and almond butter for topping


Blend all the ingredients together in a blender on high. Add more milk if you want it a little thinner, or more yogurt if you want a thicker smoothie. Top with granola, chia seeds, hemp seeds, banana slices and almond butter.
