Vitamin C Smoothie Bowl

Serves Two people

Feeling run down and in need of a vitamin C top up? If so, this is your go to breakfast. Hemp seeds and Cacao nibs are a great source of zinc which compliment the vitamin C provided by the fruit to give your immune system a boost. If you don’t have cacao nibs or hemp seeds, nut butter also contains zinc and selenium which can help boost immunity.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana – add some of the skin on for extra nutrients
  • 2 tablespoons pineapple frozen
  • 1 Kiwi fruit frozen
  • Ginger 1 inch cube
  • Handful of broccoli chopped (Can use spinach if prefer)
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Handful of crushed ice
  • Water – quantity depends on desired consistency so add water gradually.
  • Yoghurt – As plant based eaters, we use a soya or almond milk yogurt but any yoghurt will work.
  • 1 tablespoon nut or seed butter
  • Toppings – granola, cacao nips, seeds, nut or seed butter.

Top Tips:

  1. In order to get smoothie bowl consistency you want to add more ice than water, otherwise the smoothie bowl will be less frozen ad more runny.
  2. In leaving the skin on the banana, chop the ends off the skin. Adding the skin tends to work better on riper bananas.
  3. For a thicker consistency, and even more zinc and selenium, add oats to your smoothie bowl.

Method:

  1. Add all ingredients to your blender with a dash of water and crushed ice and blend. If you cannot fit all ingredients in at once, blend half and add the rest.
  2. Add as much water as desired. Remember you can always add water but you can’t take it away, so add the water gradually. 
  3. Go crazy with your toppings.
  4. Enjoy!
