This week, I am getting all geared up for the Health Blog Awards. Thanks so much to everyone who voted; it really means the world to me! I know my blog really is a small corner of the internet, but I’m so proud of it, so grateful for the love and support, and I am excited about the future for Green+Aquamarine and my own journey into wellness. I would love to know your thoughts -what do you like, what would you like to see more of? In the meantime, I have a delicious chocolatey smoothy bowl, made heavenly with a generous dollop of peanut butter. I used Meridian’s coconut peanut butter and it really was like dessert for breakfast, without being insanely high in sugar. Nativa adds a little extra sweetness without the need for extra fruit or honey.
With the unpredictable weather, I find myself switching between summery meals and comfort food frequently. For days when you really don’t know what kind of food mood you are in, or for indulgent healthy dessert, this smoothie bowl really fits the bill. It’s cooling and uses tropical bananas, yet is rich and comforting in flavour. I’ve included 1/2 an avocado as an option, but as there is already a bit of fat coming from the peanut butter, you may wish to omit it depending on your diet and goals. The avocado can be replaced with either a scoop of oats or an extra 1/2 banana, if you wish.
- 1 banana, frozen
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/2 cup nut milk
- 1 tsp Natvia*
- Optional: 1/2 avocado (see alternatives above)
- Optional: handful of spinach
