Why have a smoothie in a glass when you can have it in a bowl and add loads of toppings. Much like ice cream, burgers and pancakes, it’s all about the toppings for me.
I do love my smoothies in a glass or a bottle, as they make a good quick and easy on-the-go breakfast, but put it in a bowl and it almost becomes something totally different. I sometimes like to call it fruit soup (although I wouldn’t dip bread in it. Hmmm, maybe I would!), but a smoothie in a bowl feels like more of a meal when you eat it with a spoon.

I haven’t been out of the house for the past couple of days because our cat, Chilli, has hurt his paw and is struggling to move around. I love this cat more than most things in the world, but he is seriously the most accident prone cat in the world.
We have had to take him to the vets at least every 4 months for the past 7 years due to something. He gets trapped in things, cuts his eyes, ears, stomach, he even got hit by a car and dragged the poor thing. But this time he seems to have gotten his paw trapped in something and he can’t put pressure on it. So, it’s lots of bed rest and snuggles for him.
You may have seen from my Instagram posts that we went to a fruit farm on Saturday and it was so much fun. I will be posting more about the fruit farm next week when I show you all what delicious dessert I made to use the majority of the produce, but the first thing I made with some of the berries we picked was this smoothie bowl. I have never used blackcurrants in a smoothie before, but we picked lots of them and they needed using up.
I make the most of berry eating in the summer when they are cheaper and in abundance and I am going to be using blackcurrants in my smoothies more often, because look at the awesome colour it makes it. This vegan bowl of deliciousness just tastes so healthy.
Blackcurrants, strawberries, raspberries and tayberries all make up this delicious super berry smoothie bowl. But, there is something else that gives it some super power and that’s a spoonful of Lean Greens powder. This powder contains 5 grasses, 3 superfood vegetables, 2 berries, 6 digestive enzymes and 2 metabolic ingredients.
“The combination of the alkalising ingredients and the digestive enzymes in Lean Greens are a great way to improve gut health. Many clients report to us significantly less incidences of that uncomfortable bloated feeling.”
Sometimes with these green powders they can taste a bit funny, but you can’t actually taste this one at all when it is in a smoothie. You can also just mix it with water and it has a neutral taste, so it doesn’t taste like pond like some others can. They are so confident about the taste that they have a 60 day money back guarantee.
I have been adding this powder to my daily smoothie every day for the past couple of weeks and not only am I less bloated, but I feel like I have a lot more energy too.
Ingredients – Serves 1
200ml coconut water
1 tbsp Lean Greens powder
1 tbsp mixed seeds
1 tbsp dessicated coconut
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp oats
1) Put all of the smoothie ingredients in to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour in to a bowl and add toppings of your choice.
