A Very Green Smoothie Bowl

I kept seeing people cutting fruit into shapes on Instagram. So the other day, I decided to try it.

The key is using tiny cookie cutters: I dug up some small ones that I would usually use for sugar cookies and used them for apples instead. Make sure that you cut the apple into slices that are thick enough to hold up to a cookie cutter, but not so thick that the cutter can’t break through.

I should probably eat more green smoothies. Every time I have one it feels like my internal organs won the lottery. This smoothie had honey, spinach, avocado and pineapple. I like to add honey to green smoothies because it ups the sweetness factor. It also helps me forget that I’m drinking liquid spinach.

Here’s a song for cutting fruit into shapes and eating green smoothie bowls.

A Very Green Smoothie Bowl (from me, to you)

Ingredients

1/2 cup baby spinach leaves
1 avocado, pit and skin removed
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
1 tsp honey
1 cup almond milk
blackberries, granola, chia seeds and apples for topping

Directions

Blend the spinach, avocado, pineapple and honey in a blender on high until smooth. Top with blackberries, granola, chia seeds and apple shapes. If you don’t have cookie cutters or are short on time, you can always just slice an apple and place it on top. Enjoy!
