This Healing Green Smoothie Bowl is filled with so many nutrients from spinach, ginger, kiwi, and cinnamon, plus frozen banana and avocado for creaminess! It’s jam packed with vitamin C, and it tastes like the most delicious pudding! You’d never know how good it is for you!
How could you not want to devour this bowl? When I first made this recipe from my friend Lindsay’s cookbook, I fell in love immediately. It’s so incredibly creamy and delicious, it tastes like it should be bad for you. In the best way.
I’m truly in love with everything in this beautiful book. I have nearly every page doggy-eared, and I’ve already made 5 or 6 recipes from it. All PHENOMENAL. I did share these Mojo Salmon Bowls on the blog a couple months ago when the book first came out! Those are so, so good too.
If you haven’t picked yourself up a copy yet, you have to! All of the recipes are incredibly unique, creative, and flavorful. And Lindsay’s photography will have you swooning.
My favorite part of this bowl has to be its creaminess. The combination of the frozen banana and avocado is UN.REAL. It makes it legitimately like the creamiest pudding you’ve ever had.
But a superfood version! What more could we want?
I’ve made this 5 or 6 times in the past month, and the wonderful thing is, it keeps well in the fridge for a day or two. Since it’s more of a pudding than a smoothie, it doesn’t get watery and gross after having it in the fridge for a day or two.
I actually pack my mom’s breakfasts and lunches for work, and she took these leftover bowls with her and RAVED about them. So if you want to prep them the night or two before and take them on the go, you totally can! To prevent the avocado from oxidizing, I’d just place a piece of plastic wrap over the top, pressing against the smoothie so that no air gets in there!
Another thing I love about these is the fresh ginger (I LOVE anything with ginger), and unexpected addition of tahini! Lindsay’s recipe says you can use cashew butter too, but so far I’ve only made it with tahini and absolutely loved it. All of the healthy fats in here keep you super satisfied too!
As if we couldn’t add any more superfoods in this beautiful bowl, we have lots of fresh spinach AND greens powder! And/or spirulina. If you’ve never tried either, greens powder is usually a mixture of wheatgrass, alfalfa, spinach, chlorella, and other super healthy green things. You can’t even taste it!
Same goes for spirulina. It’s basically a blue green algae that is filled with protein, vitamins, phytonutrients, and it’s just all-around amazing for your health. I swear you can’t taste it, and it makes everything you add it to a stunning color!
The several times I’ve made this, I’ve used a mixture of greens powder and spirulina, and it’s been great. You can totally use either or, or just omit it!
I love topping them with sliced strawberries and kiwi, and edible flowers too, just for fun! I find my edible flowers at my local grocery store, and they’re just so much fun to use in the summer on smoothie bowls, toasts, cheeseboards, cocktails, and whatever you want to make a little fancy!
I add chia seeds on top too, for a little texture (because I always need it!), but you can add flaxseeds, crushed nuts, granola, or whatever you want!
Even an extra swirl of nut butter. 😍
SO. MUCH. HEALTH.
Healing Green Smoothie Bowl
This Healing Green Smoothie Bowl is filled with so many nutrients from spinach, ginger, kiwi, and cinnamon, plus frozen banana and avocado for creaminess! It's jam packed with vitamin C, and it tastes like the most delicious pudding! You'd never know how good it is for you!
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1/2 avocado, skin and pit removed*
- 1 kiwi, skin removed, plus extra slices for topping
- 2 slices peeled fresh ginger root*
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon tahini or creamy cashew butter
- 2/3 to 3/4 cup coconut milk*
- 1-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey, plus more for topping
- 2 teaspoons greens powder or spirulina*
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds or flaxseed, for topping
- sliced strawberries, for topping
In a blender, combine the banana, avocado, kiwi, ginger, spinach, cinnamon, tahini, coconut milk, and maple syrup. Blend until thick. You might have to stop a few times and scrape down the sides.
Once blended, add the greens powder and blend again until mixed. Pour into two bowls. Top the bowls with the chia seeds, kiwi, and strawberry slices. You can add maple syrup on top, if desired, and a few edible flowers!
*The avocado makes this bowl thick, like a combo of a pudding and a smoothie!
*You can also sub 1 teaspoon ground ginger for the fresh if you don't have it on hand.
*Be sure to use coconut drinking milk, rather than canned coconut milk. The less you add, the thicker the bowl will be.
*This is the spirulina I use and this is the greens powder I use.
