Smoothie Bowl - 3 ways

My favourite Summer smoothie recipes

I first discovered smoothie bowls when I was living in California. I would often meet friends for brunch, and order an Acai bowl which were new on the scene back then, but honestly I didn't really know what they were except that they tasted delicious. Since then I have been hooked, and now make my own versions trying out different combinations of fruit, veg (for a lower sugar option), protein powder, and superfood powders.

These are my current favourite combinations. 


Berry Tastic 
Serves 1
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup berries ( I love using blackberries)
3-4 chunks courgette
1 scoop berry protein powder ( I use Raw sport)
2 tbsp Acai powder

Superfood Chocolate                                                     
Serves 1
1 cup steamed then frozen sweet potato
1 frozen banana
3 chunks courgette
1tbsp nut butter
1 tbsp Cacao Powder
1tsp pink salt/ cinnamon 
(This is my personal favourite because it literally tastes like dessert :)

The Green one                                                              
Serves 1
1 frozen Banana
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
3 chunks courgette
handful of spinach
1 scoop protein powder (I use form nutrition)

Simply place all the ingredients in a blender and whizz until creamy and smooth. ( I use a nutri bullet - but it does need some help to blend the frozen fruit) Serve in a bowl, decorated with your choice of toppings. TIP: For a super thick consistency don't add any water.
