This is something that i have been loving especially in the colder months as it really gives me a kick in the morning. I am slightly allergic to raw carrots and some types of apple skin -apart from Elstar apples- due to cross pollination, as i suffer terribly from hay fever as well.
However i do try to consume small amounts of raw carrots and apples in my diet to reap their nutrient benefits as well. This smoothie is a great way for me to that.
Put all the ingredients in a mixer and blend till everything is smoothie. Place in a glass or jar sprinkle some chia and hemp shells on top. Enjoy!
Smoothie bowls are just the best thing ever. Besides smoothies and a spoon are a match made in heaven, i love to eat my smoothie like a soup. I am a huge fan of smoothie bowls and i usually always have a bowl for breakfast -especially in summer- topped with all kinds of goodies; raw nuts, cocoa nibs, chia seeds, muesli, goji. maca powder, hemp seeds. flax seeds etc etc the list of toppings is really endless. It is a really good way to get a lot of nutrients in, i sometimes also sneak in some greens like spinach into my bowl. Today i want to share with you a recipe that i usually use as a base for my smoothie bowls, this should act as a rough guide, because in the end it is really up to you, what you make of it. Make it awesome!
The Basic Smoothie Bowl.
Serves one human.
2 frozen nanas
handful of frozen berries
1 1/2 cup of oat milk ( i like to use the natural oatly type) but feel free to use water or coconut water
1 tablespoon of oats or millet flakes
a handful of fresh spinach
(Toppings used here: Chia, Goji, shaved dried coconut pieces)
put everything in a blender -apart from your toppings- and blend that baby up. When all is creamy and smooth pour into one of you favorite bowls sprinkle your toppings on top and enjoy.
