Baobab smoothie2

Green smoothie bowl-reminds me of the garden in summer!

What is the colour of Kermit (the frog), healthy, low carb & delicious? Spinach smoothie bowls! Great for the health conscious & those on paleo, glutenfree & vegan diets.

I love smoothie bowls: they are full of flavour, nutrients, simple & quick to make; ideal for mornings when time is the essence. By making a smoothie bowl, rather than a drink, you can add lots of toppings to vary the texture too. I have added walnuts, strawberries & ground flaxseed in this recipe.

Toppings add nutrients & texture

This recipe is dairy-free as I have used coconut water. If you prefer, you can always use milk instead (almond & coconut milk work well). Sweetness is provided by the fresh fruit & 2 dates & a banana. This smoothie bowl also contains the fruity flavoured superfood powder, baobab.

What is baobab?

Baobab powder  is made from the ground pulp of ‘the tree of life’ a tree native to Africa.

Ground baobab has a delicious tangy citrus flavour, is packed with vitamin C, fibre & anti-oxidants, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc & vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, B7; nutrients to give you an energy boost, support the immune system & reduce fatigue.
