Eat Your Greens Smoothie Bowl

This green smoothie is the perfect way to hide veggies in your breakfast and get your daily vitamins and minerals. Using frozen ingredients makes this smoothie very creamy and you can’t even taste the veggies. This smoothie is definitely my new obsession, and had it every morning of this week for breakfast. Last week was very busy, I traveled a lot for work, had some very intense days and totally neglected my food, even if it’s something extremely important for me and I normally never skip a meal. In two days, I didn’t have any proper meal except a couple of smoothies and mainly sweet snacks. As a result, a couple days after, I felt very tired, physically and mentally, like I’ve never experienced before. At this moment I realized how the way we nourish our bodies is important.   When I asked my body what he wanted, I quickly identified that I was craving fresh veggies and proteins, and that I needed to reduce sugar for a moment. My smoothie bowl for breakfast is kind of a ritual and I didn’t want anything else, especially now that the beautiful days are coming back. So I just substituted the fruits […]

This green smoothie is the perfect way to hide veggies in your breakfast and get your daily vitamins and minerals. Using frozen ingredients makes this smoothie very creamy and you can’t even taste the veggies.

This smoothie is definitely my new obsession, and had it every morning of this week for breakfast. Last week was very busy, I traveled a lot for work, had some very intense days and totally neglected my food, even if it’s something extremely important for me and I normally never skip a meal. In two days, I didn’t have any proper meal except a couple of smoothies and mainly sweet snacks. As a result, a couple days after, I felt very tired, physically and mentally, like I’ve never experienced before. At this moment I realized how the way we nourish our bodies is important.

 

When I asked my body what he wanted, I quickly identified that I was craving fresh veggies and proteins, and that I needed to reduce sugar for a moment. My smoothie bowl for breakfast is kind of a ritual and I didn’t want anything else, especially now that the beautiful days are coming back. So I just substituted the fruits in my smoothie with my favorite veggies, and the result was amazing ! Very creamy, nourishing and energizing. So I made it again and again, every single morning of the week.

Hiding veggies in your smoothies is a very good way to get your daily greens, without feeling you’re eating them. Especially if you don’t really like veggies, I can promise you can’t even taste there are veggies in this smoothie ! And if cauliflower and peas are too odd for you, you can start with most common options like zucchini, or try half veggies and half fruits. One of the benefits of using veggies in your smoothies rather than fruits is that it reduces the quantity of sugar, while adding fibers and various vitamins and minerals.

 

Make sure you use frozen ingredients when you’re making this smoothie, it’s important to get a thick and creamy texture. You can cook fresh veggies, I use to simply steam them, and then freeze. But store bought frozen fruits and veggies also work perfectly. Steaming your veggies makes them smooth and soften the flavors.

In the recipes are some suggestions of toppings, but feel free to use any of your favorite ones ! I like to top my bowl with fresh fruits, shredded coconut and almond. For an even more nourishing breakfast and for a crunchy touch, add a handful of homemade granola, here are a couple of recipes for you :
