Recipe: Green Smoothie Bowl (vegan, gluten free)
Updated: Mar 28, 2020
Pumpkin season is officially here! Personally, I love including pumpkin in my diet year-round. Pumpkin contains high amounts of Vitamin C and Vitamin A. It is loaded with fiber, and it is a great thickener for smoothies and soups. Smoothie bowls are both delicious and nutritious, but it is important to be mindful – a lot of smoothie bowls are only a blend of high sugar fruits. This recipe gets your greens in with spinach, but you also get healthy fats from acai and avocado, and fiber from pumpkin. Once blended together, the toppings are endless!
1 cup spinach
1 tablespoon cacao powder
¼ cup pumpkin
1 frozen acai packet
¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Berries (I used blueberries)
Measure out and place all ingredients in a blender; adjust the liquid amount to a thickness of your liking. Feel free to add any other fruits, powders, or oils you would like.
Blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl, add desired toppings, and enjoy!
