Fall Antioxidant Smoothie Bowl
- Kale, or other greens
- Celery, a great place to throw in those inner stalks and leaves
- Broccoli, use those bottom stems, just slice off the outer woody part
- Cranberries, fresh or frozen
- Pomegranate seeds
- Blueberries, fresh or frozen
- Banana, sliced and frozen
- Fresh ginger
- Fresh parsley
- Toppings of choice
Start with your vegetables: add the kale, celery, and broccoli to the blender. A starting point is 1 large bunch of kale, 1 stalk of celery, a few florets of broccoli, and a sprig or two of parsley. Add a splash of water and blend just to the point of chopping everything up. (This will help in the final blend)
Now add your fruit to the chopped mixture: equal parts cranberries, pomegranate seeds, and blueberries. Try starting with about 1/3 cup of each. Add the equivalent of anywhere from 1-2 bananas. Using frozen banana is key for a thick and extra creamy smoothie bowl, so you can always add more if needed.
Lastly, throw in a small knob of ginger, adding more if you know you like that spicy kick.
Starting on low, begin blending, adding water. Too much will turn your smoothie bowl into a smoothie, so add just enough needed to help blend.
Turn up to high and blend until smooth, thick, and creamy. Pour into a bowl, top with your toppings of choice and enjoy!
You'll need a high speed blender for this one. I use a Vitamix.
