Super Green Smoothie Bowl

It’s that time of the year again... New Year’s health and fitness resolutions! I’ve just started a mini detox after the Christmas ‘silly’ season and now I’m back into my normal fitness routine ready for the new year. Go me! ☺ It’s also peak time for green smoothies, emerging in full force on all our social feeds! ☺

I thought I’d kick off this New Year with a healthy new smoothie recipe! This blend is now one of my favourites and to quote my husband “I just want to keep drinking it”. Yep, it’s pretty good!

The smoothie recipe is great as is, but I also love to turn it into a smoothie bowl. Smoothie bowls are perfect for those mornings when your appetite calls for something a little more filling. I like to top mine with my favourite muesli or granola and a heap of fresh fruit. A little more interesting and satisfying (especially for hungry husbands). 

Smoothie bowls are also a great idea when breakfast entertaining. Simply set up a fresh fruit and granola bar and people can create their own smoothie bowls. Super easy and a bit of fun!

Enjoy the recipe and have the most wonderful New Year celebrations everyone! I can’t wait to see all the exciting things that 2016 has in store.

Much love,
