Midnight smoothie bowl

I was so fortunate the other day, the fruit and veg market had organic blueberries and blackberries half – price!! Yeah some where not perfect but when blended up no-one would know no different. When I go to the store I always have a look on their discounted trolley. I hate wastage it is a massive passion of mine, we waste so much food that it is becoming really sad with terrible consequences. This rotten matter in landfill forms methane gases which is negatively impacting our environment. I have made a few changes where I always try and think ahead and freeze our left overs or pack them for work or school lunches the next day. I also look at the discounted products in the supermarket and see what yummy creations I can develop like smoothies, pesto’s, pasta sauces and curries.

Anyway, these berries were super delicious and I loved the colour when blended up, they weren’t blue but weren’t purple either! The blue spirulina (it looks purple though haha) not only added to the amazing colour but boosted my nutrient intake.

So in a blender I placed

  • 1 large frozen chopped banana
  • 1 cup frozen mixed blueberries & blackberries
  • 1 teaspoon blue spirulina powder
  • 1 heaped tablespoon cashew butter
  • 1/3 cup plant based milk

Once all the ingredients are blended together I poured it into a bowl and topped with some favourite treats and fruit.

I had some vegan hazelnut chocolate truffles that I cut in half and placed on top with sliced banana, pumpkin seeds, almond yoghurt and some cute star shaped dragonfruit.

Plum & banana smoothie bowl

Here is a simple, but yummy colourful smoothie bowl. I love experimenting with different fruits, whole foods and spices in my recipes. In this one I chopped up a soft plum – that no one wanted to eat! And froze it down with a large banana. I also included some blue spirulina as it contains essential nutrients including protein, B vitamins, iron and manganese.

So all you need to do is in a blender place:

  • 1 large frozen banana chopped
  • 1 frozen plum chopped
  • 3 medjool dates
  • 2 teaspoons blue spirulina
  • 1/3 cup plant based milk

Now blend together and pour into your bowl. Garnish with your favourite fruits, granola, seeds, nuts. If you are like me a little chocolate is added too! Enjoy x
