Servings 1 bowl
Author Noelle Parton

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. 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)
  2. 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.
  3. Lastly, throw in a small knob of ginger, adding more if you know you like that spicy kick.
  4. 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.

  5. Turn up to high and blend until smooth, thick, and creamy. Pour into a bowl, top with your toppings of choice and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You'll need a high speed blender for this one. I use a Vitamix.
