Just a quick egg-free breakfast suggestion for you Whole 30-ers! A banana, apple, spinach and coconut smoothie bowl for the perfect morning energy boost. I actually wanted to make this as nana-ice-cream but I needed to use up my non-frozen bananas so I had to settle for just a smoothie – equally as nice but ice cream form always seems more filling! To really bulk it out, I loaded mine with *deep breath* cashews, pumpkin seeds, flax seed, goji berries, banana slices, blackberries, blueberries, and a sprinkling of more shredded coconut – making it a filling and substantial breakfast! Whenever you’re having a smoothie fore breakfast be sure to load it with nutrient dense toppings and eat it with a spoon (!!!), so your brain gets the message that this is food to fill you up and not just a drink!
P.S You really cannot taste the spinach so feel free to add even more. Remember that you should be having a considerable amount of vegetables (preferably greenery) with every meal, so knock yourself out: add kale, avocado, carrot, etc…
Ingredients (serves 1)
2 bananas (frozen if you want nana ice cream)
2 large handfuls of spinach
1 large apple (peeled, cored, and chopped)
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup shredded coconut
Method (for those of you who own a crappy blender like mine)
- First blend together the spinach and milk to create a green liquid.
- Add the apple and coconut and blend until smooth.
- Add the banana last to avoid any clogging. Blend until thick and creamy.
- Serve with your desired toppings!
Another quick note: I will be posting some dinners at some point as well, I’m not all about the breakfasts don’t worry!
