Start your morning off right with a green smoothie bowl. An easy way to get greens and vegetables into your breakfast. Gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. 

Two bowls of green smoothies topped with raspberries, mango, goji berries, almonds, shredded coconut and chia seeds.

I decided 2016 was going to be the year I tried a smoothie bowl.

I know, I know. How in the world have I not tried a smoothie bowl yet when I drink a smoothie EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING. I don’t really have a good answer to that besides the fact that they seemed a bit intimidating to me.

You see smoothie bowls all over Instagram and Pinterest with their perfectly placed toppings and beautiful, bright colors. That’s a lot of pressure to live up to! But it’s 2016, so I decided to go big or go home (just kidding, I was already home) and make a green smoothie bowl that could party with the best of the smoothie bowls on Instagram.

My smoothie bowl requirements were as follows:

  1. Must be green – because green is always better
  2. Must not be super duper high in sugar even from fruit to keep my candida at bay
  3. Must be filling – I’m talking no second breakfast before I get to lunch today
  4. Must attempt to be aesthetically pleasing

Well check, check, check AND check! Because this smoothie is green (obviously) from a combination of spinach and avocado, is low enough in sugar for me, filled me up all morning, and is pretty darn beautiful if you ask me!

I topped my smoothie bowl with what I had on hand in my pantry, some extra mango, raspberries, almonds, goji berries, unsweetened avocado and chia seeds. I love all the textures that they gave to my smoothie!

The extra toppings really made this smoothie a full meal for me and I actually realized I love eating smoothies with a spoon! Be gone with you straws! At least for today…

If you like this recipe, try a smoothie bowl using my recipes for this cranberry beet smoothie or my favorite apple and kale green smoothie! This Strawberry Avocado Spinach Green Smoothie would also make a great base for a smoothie bowl!
