Breakfast Berry Smoothie Bowl
WASH and peel the orange and banana.
ADD the mixed berries, orange and banana and water into a blender jug and blend until smooth. If too thick to blend, add a dash more water but keep it thick enough to eat with a spoon.
SERVE smoothie in bowls. Top with defrosted berries and scatter with sunflower seeds and cacao nibs. Drizzle with maple syrup or honey if you need a little sweetness.
IF you are drinking it as a smoothie and it is too thick, add more water.
FROZEN BERRIES can be much cheaper and more sustainable with less packaging than fresh berries. Frozen berries retain all their nutrients picked at optimum freshness and quickly frozen.
SWAP MIXED BERRIES for any berries you like, frozen cranberries and cherries make a great addition.
SWAP BANANA | ORANGE citrus, mango, apple, pear, jackfruit.
ADD SUPER SEED MIX is a great addition and helps balance hormones and our bodies’ natural elimination + detoxification process. Blended smoothies are a great way to help aid our digestion & nutrient absorption process and balance our blood sugar.
ADD PROTEIN POWDER – Use what you like. I use a neutral-flavoured plant-based protein with no sweeteners, fake sugars, flavours + or “stuff”. Purchase powders from a trusted + sustainable source and always read the ingredients label.
