Tropical Green Smoothie Bowl by Nourish Nutrition Co.

Tropical Green Smoothie Bowl by Nourish Nutrition Co.

What makes up a complete breakfast? If you ask Rebecca Clyde, Registered Dietitian and Owner of Nourish Nutrition Co, she would it’s got some healthy fat, protein, and whole food ingredients. This tropical green smoothie bowl fits the bill, plus it’s sweet enough that even the kids will enjoy it!

Goodness Blended In

This tropical smoothie bowl recipe contains a few sneaky superfoods like avocado and spinach. Avocado is a heart-healthy fat that also contains quite a bit of fiber, along with vitamins C, E, K, B-6, and folate. Folate is an important nutrient, especially for women of childbearing age (just ask our OB/GYNs). There’s another great source of folate in this smoothie bowl: Fresh spinach which provides the pastel green hue.

Rebecca also blends some Greek yogurt into this smoothie, an excellent source of filling protein that’ll hold you over until lunch. “Look for unsweetened Greek yogurt,” says Rebecca, “there’s plenty of natural sweetness in here from the tangy pineapple and creamy banana.”

Let’s Talk Toppings

In a rush? You may opt to pour your smoothie into a tall glass and enjoy it with a straw. But if you’ve got the time to make a smoothie bowl, you totally should. “The combination of textures and flavors brings this smoothie bowl to life,” says Rebecca. Her favorite toppings? “Fresh blackberries or blueberries taste great in here. Kiwi feels extra tropical, and coconut chips add a little crunch.”
