Description

Delicious and easy 5 ingredient green smoothie bowls are the healthiest way to turn a smoothie into a satisfying meal!


Ingredients

  • 12 cups spinach (I always add 2)
  • 1 frozen banana (peel, slice, and freeze)*
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple*
  • 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (or plain– I use nonfat)
  • 1/2 cup coconut water (I used pineapple flavored)*
  • assorted toppings: fruit, granola, seeds, nuts, etc

Instructions

  1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender that will blend up the frozen fruit. I like this Ninja or this Vitamix.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to the blender in the order listed. Blend on high for at least 2 minutes or until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. The smoothie will be very thick.
  3. Pour into a bowl and add toppings. Store any leftover smoothie covered in the refrigerator for up to 8-10 hours.

Notes

  1. Frozen Fruit: The key to the smoothie’s super thick texture. You can use 1 cup frozen mango instead of the banana or 1/2 cup frozen mango instead of the frozen pineapple. Just as tasty!
  2. Coconut Water: I use a pineapple flavor coconut water. Any kind works. Milk can be substituted for the coconut water. Sometimes I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead. Any milk works.
