As regular readers of this blog, you’re all familiar with Smoothie Bowls, of course. :-) You may have also seen my Basic Recipe for Açaí Bowls. Well, today I’m adding a new bowl to the family: Green Smoothie Bowls, a wonderfully thick and spoonable alternative to regular green smoothies!

Basic recipe

A Green Smoothie Bowl comprises a smoothie made from fruit and leafy greens, which is then thickened (and made spoonable) by blending in chia seeds, grain flakes (including those of gluten-free grains), or frozen fruits and vegetables.

For the Green Smoothie Bowl in the photos, I used a base made from banana, spinach, frozen mango, and matcha powder. You can find more ideas for Green Smoothies here.

Green Smoothie Bowls are super versatile – feel free to play around with the different combinations in the base smoothie and in the toppings!


Let your imagination run wild! I topped the bowl in the pic with bananas, kiwi, shredded coconut, and chia seeds. I also like to use other superfoods like goji berries, dried mulberries, and dried chokeberries, or nuts and other seeds and fruits on my Green Smoothie Bowls.
