Time to get creative with your go-to smoothie bowl! Well, at least that's what I need to do.
I find myself making the exact same green smoothie each day - coconut water, banana, pineapple, spinach and chia seeds. Usually I don't even think about making a new flavor combination until I'm out of one of my usual ingredients. Which this week was pineapple.
But, running out of an ingredient is sometimes a great thing! Because it forces you to substitute with something new or try a different combination. Smoothie boredom, no more!
I added a handful of parsley to this smoothie because lately our plant is growing out of control. But, I imagine basil would also work beautifully with the blueberries!
Blueberry & Parsley Smoothie Bowl
(makes 1 smoothie bowl)
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup blueberries, frozen or fresh
- 1 1/4 cup coconut water
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 handful fresh parsley
- 1 big handful spinach
- Toppings: blueberries, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut and/or bee pollen
- Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until very smooth - about one minute - depending on the strength of your blender.
- Pour into a bowl and top with your choice of toppings. Enjoy with a spoon!
No, I don't think fresh smoothie bowls will ever get old...
