I’ve always seen smoothie bowls all over my Instagram home page and although I knew that they are super easy to make, I never seemed to take the initiative and try making my own smoothie mixes.
So here it is my Mango Sunrise Smoothie, it’s a delicious mix that only takes up to 10 minutes of preparation.
½ cup of almonds
1 small banana
½ small avocado
½ cup of almond milk
1 tea spoon of raw cocoa powder
[The quantity used creates two small smoothie bowls]
Add ½ a cup of nuts of your choice into the blender (you can mix two types of nuts such as walnuts and almonds); I chose almonds for this smoothie. Peel and cut 1 mango into pieces. Add a small banana. Peel an avocado and add half of it into the blender. Pour in ½ a cup of almond milk or any type of milk that you happen to have at home. Finally add a pinch of spices of your choice such as cinnamon or raw cocoa powder. Blend all together for a few minutes until smooth. (If the smoothie happens to not be very cold, add a few ice cubes into the blender and blend until the ice cubes are crushed). Once smooth, pour into a cup or bowl and add toppings. If you’re in a hurry then pour into a cup and drink it on the go. But if you are feeling creative, pour it into a smoothie bowl and decorate the top with toppings. I usually like the toppings to be the ingredients used within the smoothie. So in this case, I topped my smoothie bowl with avocado slices, mango pieces, banana, and raw cocoa powder.
Stay tuned for some more smoothie recipes soon!
PS: don’t be scared of experimenting and trying to make your own smoothie recipes (I suggest using not more than 2-3 types of fruits).
