Healthy Green Smoothie Bowl With Kiwi + Kale
Just the right balance of sweet and tangy, with plenty of nutrients and vitamins packed in this four-ingredient smoothie.
The best way to get your greens in? Without tasting them! Just kidding. (Kind of.)
Smoothies and smoothie bowls are my go-to when I’m looking for some quick and tasty nutrition. You can throw in any fruits and veggies that you want, but more often than not, I’m slacking on getting my greens in. When that’s the case, this green smoothie bowl is one of my favorite ways to catch up on nourishment.
Kiwi adds a tart punch to this smoothie bowl, which is sweetened with a banana. I used kale, but you can add spinach or any other greens that you’d like. Throw it all in a blender with water, milk or dairy-free milk, pour it into a bowl and add your favorite toppings, and your breakfast, snack, dinner or whatever is served!
Your body will thank you for consuming the three fruits and veggies in this smoothie bowl. Here’s why.
Kale: Big in vitamins B, C, E and K, plus kale offers calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium.
Kiwi: Considered to be one of the most nutrient-dense fruits. It’s such a good source of vitamin C. In fact, a half-cup serving of kiwi will get you 140% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C.
Banana: More potassium! Also vitamins B-6 and C, plus fiber.
These ingredients are available year-round in the supermarket, but kale and kiwi are plentiful in colder months.
- Kale or greens of your choice
- Water, dairy-free milk or milk
Smoothie Bowl Toppings
There are endless choices! A perfect pairing would be my toasted coconut granola with macadamia nuts, honey and cardamom (cinnamon works too). Such a tropical treat.
Here are some other possibilities:
- Sliced banana
- Peanut butter
- Pomegranate seeds
- Chia seeds
- White chocolate chips
- Dried fruits
- Apple slices
If you’ve got the extra time, try freezing your ingredients ahead of time for a thicker, creamier smoothie bowl. Peel and roughly chop up the banana, then scoop the pulp out of your kiwi fruit and put them in a bowl in the freezer for a few hours. Frozen bananas are a major smoothie hack. I like to keep some ready to go in my freezer because it really takes your smoothies to the next level.
Want to make your smoothie bowl more filling? Try topping it with granola or adding about ½ cup of oats into the mix. You’ll need to add more liquid accordingly, but this keeps me feeling full for hours later. If smoothies tend to leave you feeling hungry, try this out!
