Jumpstart your morning with a bowl of Berry Banana Breakfast Smoothie

If you thought smoothies are amazing, you’re going to enjoy smoothie bowls.

Smoothies are a convenient way to boost your fruit and veggie intake while you’re on the go, but a smoothie bowl is something you can savor on a weekend without rushing to beat morning traffic. Smoothie bowls are also a great way to sneakily boost your intake of leafy greens.

As a bonus, you can add yummy, nutritious toppings like fruit slices or nuts to your breakfast smoothie bowls. Start your day right with a gluten-free, healthy banana berry breakfast smoothie bowl!

Smoothie bowl tips

When using a pungent leafy green, like arugula or spinach, you can balance the flavor of your smoothie bowl with a banana. The fruit is the secret to making creamy, naturally sweet smoothies.

Mother Nature's micronutrient secret: Organic Broccoli Sprout Capsules now available, delivering 280mg of high-density nutrition, including the extraordinary "sulforaphane" and "glucosinolate" nutrients found only in cruciferous healing foods. Every lot laboratory tested. See availability here.

Bananas also bind the rest of your ingredients and prevent an unappetizing, watery smoothie bowl.

Use very ripe bananas with brown spots on their peels. The brown spots indicate that the starches in the banana are already being converted to sugars, which means very ripe bananas are much sweeter than other bananas.

Bananas with peels that are turning brown are also easier to digest. Want a creamier smoothie bowl? Peel a banana, cut them into chunks, and freeze them the night before.

If you don’t like bananas, you can replace it with your fruit of choice and half an avocado to ensure that your smoothie bowl is creamy.

Ingredients for one serving

  • A handful of spinach (roughly about 1 – 1 ½ cups)
  • 1 ½ cups frozen berries
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk, unsweetened
  • 1 banana
  • Optional toppings (e.g. banana slices, blackberries, chia seeds, coconut flakes, kiwi slices, raspberries, strawberries, etc.)

Preparation

  1. Combine the almond milk, banana, frozen berries, and spinach in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a bowl, then add your preferred toppings before serving.
