Happy Meatless Monday! (Bonus: I’m the Recipe of the Week over there!) As always, I’m honored to bring you a delicious, accessible, and meatless meal every Monday. Thinking about joining in on this awesome movement? You should! I talk all about the benefits here and here. This Monday, I’m bringing you a super simple and delicious Green Smoothie Bowl. This smoothie bowl is made with avocado, strawberries, spinach, kale, and coconut water. It’s vegan, dairy-free, and crazy easy to make.

Why make a smoothie bowl when you can just drink a smoothie? It’s really all about the toppings. Smoothie bowls are definitely more filling and can really feel like a more complete meal. Plus, they’re totally trending right now and you can be a star among your Instagram friends! They’re just so picture-worthy.

They’re made the same exact way as a smoothie, just a little thicker, and eaten with a spoon instead of a straw. But, yeah, they’re all about the toppings. And really, you could top them with just about anything.

For example?

Chia seeds.

Fresh fruit.

Crunchy granola.

Coconut flakes.

Nut butters.

Cocao nibs. Or chocolate chips. We don’t care. Go nuts.

Bee pollen.

Goji berries.

Unicorn tears.

A drizzle of honey or maple syrup.

The world is your oyster bowl.

I like this recipe particularly because although it’s a green smoothie and packed full of green goodies, it also has strawberries and banana to give more of a fruity sweetness.

Kale and spinach make up the “green” portion of this bowl, delivering a large dose of fiber, vitamins, and nutrients. Frozen strawberries and bananas are a must for creating the thick, dreamy texture. Avocado gets on board by providing some healthy fats in addition to coconut oil, and coconut water keeps this smoothie dairy-free and light.

There you have it, my friends! What are your favorite smoothie bowl toppings? Do you prefer your smoothie in a glass or in a bowl? Tell me in the comments below!

Recipe type: smoothie
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 frozen banana, sliced
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 2 cups spinach (about one bunch)
  • 1 cup kale, stemmed (about half of a bunch)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (optional)
  • Juice of one lime
  • ½ cup coconut water (I used pineapple flavored)
  • Ice, if needed, for thickening
Toppings:
  • Chia seeds, unsweetened coconut, fresh strawberries, and banana slices.
Instructions
  1. Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. If using the coconut oil, melt it gently until slightly warm but not hot and drizzle in with the blender running.
  2. The smoothie should be thick due to the frozen banana and berries. If you would like to thicken it more, add ice until your desired consistency.
