Kiwifruit Wheatgrass Green Smoothie Bowl

For a person who loves smoothies and toppings as much as I flippin’ do, I sure post too little about them. Like, if this blog was truly to represent my daily eating habits, it’d be filled with nothing but smoothies, rice & beans and porridge. Oh, and avo toast too. Who can resist that creamy avo on a slice of crusty sourdough?? I sure can’t!!

But it’s smoothies we’re talking about today. Sweet & creamy, yet very nutritious bowls of goodness topped with even more nutrients. I’m such a sucker for vitamins I kid you not. If it’s bright, sweet and juicy and it grows from a plant, I sure as heck want to have it in my smoothie bowl.

HAND ME THEM BERRIES AND NO ONE GETS HURT.

Anyhoo! I thought I’d start a new blog series called “Smoothie Saturdays” where I show you my favourite smoothie recipes. Maybe I could even talk about my favourite powders to use, if you’d like me too? Health benefits, maybe? Crazy good topping combos which will make you want to backflip into the sun while happy dancing?

Whatever is floating your boat right now, let me know in the comments and I will deliver. As for now, I’m sticking with just the recipe for one of my favourite green smoothie recipes, since I have a plant biology exam to revise for.

Ah, ol’ plant biology: the only reason I, the supreme plant-muncher, can get to hate plants. Uh-kay, let me take that back. I also loathe plants when they come in clementine form. 

Clementines <—- ugh @ them. 

If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Olly from Game of Thrones, Voldemort and a clementine, I’d probably shoot the clementine twice.

Okay, let me take that back. Dismiss the “probably”. “TOTALLY” is what I meant.

Anyhoo number two! Since this is a clementine-free smoothie, it almost inmediately qualifies as an epic one. I mean, have you ever tried putting some super duper almost mushy kiwifruit into your smoothies?? Instant caramel flavour I’m telling you. Plus a whole lot of sweeteness which you will totally dig if you aren’t a fan of putting sugar in your smoothies. I threw in a bit of coconut sugar aka glorious dust from heaven for good measure, but if you use overripe fruit, you can totally skip it.

Then there’s a handful of spinach added for extra healthy points. Don’t like spinach? Feel free to throw in some other green of your choice. Although I personally don’t see how you can like kale/chard/whatevs if you don’t like spinach but to each their own. Please please please, don’t go for romaine lettuce though! Romaine belongs in your rice and beans bowls, not in your smoothie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And last but not least we have some wheatgrass powder to spice things up and add some extra goodness. Because I’m a sucker for vitamins, remember? If you aren’t a fan of the flavour, add some lemon or lime juice. Although I personally love wheatgrass in small quantities since it makes everything taste like a fancy matcha latte. But then again, it’s your smoothie bowl, your rules. Feel free to add whatever.

Whatever but the clementines, pretty please with a cherry on top. And there’s a reason why it’s said “with a cherry on top” and not “with a clementine on top”…

…. BECAUSE CLEMENTINES SUCK.

    So I’ve pretty much compiled everything I have to say in response to this hilarious jumble of stories and thoughts that you’ve written, Consuelo, aside from your gorgeously decorated smoothie bowl:

    1) If you saw my daily life of food, you will see a LOT of egg white omelets, sweet potatoes, peanut butter, chicken salads, green tea and broccoli. I’m sure if I posted this meal plan, it is going to make me Insta-famous.
    2) What I would like to see in your Smoothie Saturdays series are tips on how to perfectly ace a smoothie bowl, because I am the queen of incandescently attempting to make smoothie “ice cream-like” which then results me to accidentally add too much ice, therefore making my smoothie a bit too melty and having it drip everywhere while the toppings just SINK. You have no idea how frustrating this is! >:(
    3) I think plant biology is such an awesome major! I actually became so interested in growing plants when I saw The Martian and decided that I wanted to start college with an agriculture and food science major! But yes, there are certain plants that are just…
    4) And DO NOT put arugula in a smoothie. You will seriously regret it.

    Oooh, I didn’t know ripe kiwis could add caramel like flavour :O I never buy kiwis because they destroy my mouth, but now I think I have too. They are so good. And Smoothie Saturdays?! YES! Bring ’em on
