Warning: This smoothie bowl is healthy – mega healthy! I decided to try something new instead of my usual strawberry smoothiebowl, which I then decided to upgrade to a healthy dessert.
I had been inspired by a beautiful picture from The Minimalist Baker, and found all the greenest ingredients we had in the fridge.
I have to say that I never really understood what all the fuzz was about with smoothies. I mean, they taste nice, but I wasn’t really as impressed by the phenomenon as what seemed like the rest of the world was.
That was until I learned about smoothie bowls.
Seriously… Why have smoothie any other way?
I loove smoothies now and for the longest time I had the most amazing strawberry smoothie bowl for breakfast.
These days I’m all jammed up about banana ice cream for breakfast, but my strawberry smoothie bowl is so deliciously dessert-like that I might just go back to that soon.
But, it can’t all be sweets and dessert-like bowls for breakfast.
So I decided to try the healthier route (as banana ice cream and my strawberry smoothie bowl really are healthy as well) and add more veggies.
Now that was an eye opener as well!
And the thing I love about smoothe bowls is that you can spice it up with any kind of topping you want. I like sweets (big surprise), so I added homemade low FODMAP granola, fresh blueberries and a little coconut.
Now, if you do not tolerate avocado well, this smoothie will be a challenge. So if you are in the initial phase of your low FOODMAP diet, or if you have tested avocado and found out that you can’t really tolerate larger quantities you may need to be careful about the amount of avocado. In that case, you can replace some of the avocado with banana.
Apart from that it’s super simple and easy to make – just use avocado, fresh kale, baby spinach and fresh ginger, and then you’re on your way.
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 handful of fresh green cabbage
- A couple handfuls of fresh baby spinach
- Approx. 2 cm. fresh ginger or more if you love ginger as much I do
- A bit almond milk
- Possibly maple syrup if you it sweet
Mix all the ingredients together.
Start by just pouring a little almond milk in, as you want it to be a bit thicker when making a smoothie bowl.
Taste, and maybe add a little more almond milk, ginger or maple syrup.
Decorate with fresh fruit, granola or chopped nuts – eat.
