Orange Apple Smoothie bowl

Orange apple smoothie 11

 

Eat your vitamins with a smoothie bowl! What a way to cram in the fruit and veg! What’s more, you can easily bump up the nutrient content with add ins like protein powder, seeds (e.g. chia, flax, hemp, sunflower seeds), healthy fats (e.g. avocado, nut and seed butters) and superpowders (e.g. wheatgrass, baobab, spirulina).

I am often asked how do you make the perfect smoothie. This boils down to personal preference, but l like to balance out the sweetness of the fruit with vegetables. Also, as I like my smoothies thick and creamy, I use frozen fruit and veg where possible (especially frozen bananas!)

As for the liquid base, I like to use filtered water, green tea, coconut water, plant milk or chamomile tea; and sometimes a mixture of these! One of the best things about smoothies is that you can always play with the recipe as you go along, tailoring it to your own palate.

 

Orange apple smoothie 1

 

This smoothie bowl combines the sweetness of fresh orange with apple and mango and balances it with cauliflower (you can’t taste it, but is adds nutrition and creaminess) and refreshing cucumber. The goji berries add a touch of earthiness and the lime a bit of zing.

Smoothie bowls are a perfect and refreshing way to rehydrate and reenergise; I love them for breakfast, after a good gym work out or simply when I need an energy boost. I tend to make smoothie bowls rather than smoothies, unless I am in need for a grab and go breakfast, as I love adding crunchy toppings!

Time: 5 mins

Makes: 500ml

Ingredients:

  • Half a large orange (approx. 75g)
  • 1 red apple, skin on, diced
  • 1/3 Mango (approx. 75g) (Pineapple also works!)
  • 3 florets of cauliflower (ideally frozen)
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and roughly chopped into chunks
  • 1 chunk of cucumber (approx. 40g, peeled) (You can sub for courgette).
  • 1 large banana (frozen)
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds or flax or hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp. goji berries
  • 1 thumb sized piece of fresh root ginger
  • 2 tbsp. protein powder (pea or soya bean).
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 100ml plant milk or green tea

*Frozen if possible. This will work too unfrozen, but the end result will be less creamy

 

Optional: 1 tbsp. baobab superfruit powder for an extra anti-oxidant and fibre citrussy boost!

Topping ideas: quinoa crispies, granola, fresh blueberries, pomegranate seeds, sliced apple, kiwi, cacao-coated goldenberries, apple peel rolled up t make a rose

 

Method:

Add all smoothie ingredients into a blender and whizz to combine. Pour into a bowl and decorate as desired.
