A green smoothie bowl

DSC02372

One of my favourite afternoon snacks is a big bowl full of beautiful green vegetables and fruit. It is refreshing, energising, sweet, tangy and the perfect fuel before my afternoon workout. The colour may be a little off putting to some but when you taste the amazing flavours you will not be disappointed! I like to mix up the toppings to keep things fresh but I find some seeds, coconut and fresh fruit always work well.

This is super quick and easy to make, so when you get home from a long day at work instead of reaching for a packet of something not so good get your blender out and get blending! This will satisfy you for much longer than any processed snack.

I like to buy fruit when its really ripe and cheap, especially bananas and slice and freeze them in bags. They are then there and ready for any smoothie creation.
