Green Smoothie Bowl: Vegan MoFo
I am really grateful I spent time drafting blog posts for Vegan MoFo or I would just have to bow out gracefully. As it is I have enough drafts to keep me going a while and to hope my computer might get fixed. I had thought it was a battery charging problem but now I think it might be a dodgy charging cord problem. Still searching!
Meanwhile I can share this Green Smoothie Bowl. Once I tried my first smoothie bowl recently I was taken with the idea of a green version. And I made one on a crazy day of baking for Vegan MoFo before running out the door in a rush without time to try the smoothie bowl. I left it in the fridge with toppings and had it when I returned a few hours later. It was really good. I imagine it would be particularly great cold like this in summer.
I loved the smoothie but it was quite light and not overly sweet. Afterwards I found two halves of a banana. Only then did it dawn on me that half a banana had been destined for the smoothie but overlooked in my hurry. I had also forgotten to buy kiwi fruit which I would have liked to include. I added the banana in the recipe below because I feel this would make the sort of smoothie I was after but you could make it without banana too. I would have liked a greener smoothie. Perhaps more greens would improve the colour. Quibbles aside, I was glad to try this and hope to return to the green smoothie bowl one day.
This post is part of Vegan MoFo 2018 which I am participating in during September.
