Chef's Quick Tip: Berry crunch smoothie bowl
Chef Ester, a nutritionist and dietician in Weston, shares how to make a twist on the classic morning smoothie: berry crunch smoothie bowl.
Ingredients:
1 cup chopped kale or baby spinach
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1½ cups frozen mixed berries
½ frozen banana (Yes, you can use a regular banana, but then you may have to add some ice to your smoothie bowl.)
1-2 teaspoons raw honey or maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like things)
Suggested Toppings:
½ banana, sliced
¼ cup blueberries
2-3 strawberries, sliced
1 teaspoon chia seeds
2 tablespoons chopped almonds
2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut shavings, raw or toasted
¼ cup granola of your choice
Recipe:
Place the kale or spinach, chia seeds, and milk in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Add the frozen mixed berries, banana and honey/maple syrup to the blender. Puree, scraping down the sides of the blender periodically, until relatively smooth. Pour smoothie into a bowl and garnish with toppings of your choice.
