This super delicious vegan smoothie bowl is an ideal breakfast or snack at any time of the day. . Smoothie bowls are a great way to fit a large amount of nutrition into one meal. They are also an easy way to disguise disliked vegetables and other items such as seeds or nuts. Because of this smoothies can be a great way to get children eating a wide range of fruits and vegetables. Foods such as beetroot or spinach add an appealing splash of colour which can appeal to children. Perhaps they can help in creating ‘alien’ juice or ‘purple princess’ smoothies? 😉
Whole nuts can be used, if you prefer and the flaxseed can be subbed with another type of ground seed. A scoop of protein powder will add an extra boost to the smoothie!
This recipe makes one generous serving.
Banana and Peanut Butter Vegan Smoothie Bowl Recipe
2 bananas – approx. 180g (6.3oz)
½ cup of soya milk
2 tbsp peanut butter
10g spinach (0.3oz)
1 tbsp cocoa
1 tsp ground flaxseed
1 tbsp chia seeds
½ banana, sliced – approx. 40g (1.4oz)
25g (0.9oz) granola
1 tsp chopped mixed nuts
1. Blend the bananas, soya milk, peanut butter, cocoa, ground flaxseed and chia until completely smooth. The finished smoothie will be quite thick but do not worry; this helps to stop the toppings sinking and makes the smoothie easily to spoon.
2. Pour the smoothie and arrange the toppings as desired.
