Packed with green power, this smoothie from Breakfast Bowls by Caroline Griffiths, will get you firing on all cylinders. Green superfoods powder is a combination of spirulina, chlorella and wheatgrass — available from health food stores and some supermarkets. Other superfoods powders will work well in this recipe too. Try maca, acai, mesquite or protein powder.
For the smoothie bowl
|1 cup||Natural yoghurt, or milk kefir|
|½ cup||Ice, crushed|
|3 handfuls||Baby spinach, or shredded kale|
|1||Avocado, stone removed|
|2 Tbsp||Mint leaves|
|1 Tbsp||Linseed / flaxseed, ground|
|1 Tbsp||Green superfoods powder|
|1||Lime, enough juice to taste|
|1 drizzle||Honey, to taste|
- Whizz the yoghurt or kefir with the ice, spinach or kale, and the avocado, mint, linseed and superfoods powder in a high-speed blender or small food processor until smooth. Scrape down the inside of the blender or processor bowl if required. If the mixture isn’t moving well in the blender, add a tablespoon or two of water or kefir, being careful not to add too much liquid.
- Taste the smoothie and add a squeeze of lime juice and a drizzle of honey to balance the flavour to your liking.
- Spoon the thick smoothie mixture immediately into two chilled bowls and top with the avocado, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds and mint.
