Smoothie Bowls are a way to boost healthy eating and nutrition all around.
Instead of drinking a smoothie, it ca really replace a meal as they are Delicious filling and nutritious.
You need one high speed blender and some frozen fruit usually to include a banana. If you do not like banana swap with avocado, cannelini beans or frozen zucchini for a similar creamy texture.’
You will need:
½ raw carrot
½ cooked beetroot
2 kale leaves
1 peeled apple
2 frozen bananas
2 cups mixed frozen cherries and cranberries
1 teaspoon agave
2 cups nut milk of your choice
3 tablespoons oats
For the topping: 100g fresh cherries, 50g dry roasted flaked almonds and 50g melted dark chocolate [ I use Novi Nero Nero Mint], baby chard.
Chill clean smoothie bowls in the fridge overnight. Add all the ingredients to the blender and combine until it is a smooth consistency. While you are doing this melt the dark chocolate in a bain marie.
Pour into a bowl. Arrange the fresh cherries on top of the smoothie mix. Add some dry roasted flaked almonds.
Pour melted chocolate on the surface of the smoothie mix. It will solidify to form a delicious chocolate topping. Garnish with baby chard.
