Antioxidant smoothie bowl  

Prep time : 15min 

Serves : 1 bowl for 1 person 

Ingredients :

-50g frozen acai pulp 

-A handful of spinach

-1/2 cup frozen mango chunks

-1 banana

-1/3 cup fresh fruits (I chose papaya)

-1/4 cup frozen blueberries

-Topping of your choice, I like to top mine with: 

->Muesli

->Grated coconut

->Fresh fruits 

Directions : 

-Start by preparing your toppings, to have it handy when the smoothie is ready.

-Add the fresh fruits, banana and spinach to your blender.

Blend on low until smooth. 

-Add frozen berries (acai and blueberries) and blend until smooth.

At this point, you might need to add some water (1-2tbsp should be enough).

If you have a Vitamix, use the temper to push frozen ingredients down into the blade.

If you don’t have a Vitamix or any powerful blender, you can shake it while it’s blending to make sure your smoothie is thick and smooth. (Check out my Instagram story highlight #2  to see how I get this texture with a low quality blender.)

I also stop it a few times, to scrap the sides and push the mixture down towards the blade.

 -When it’s well blended, add the mango and repeat with the same method until smooth. 

If you need to add some more water, make sure you don’t go over 1/4 cup total of liquid in your smoothie, otherwise it will be too watery.

It might take a little longer if you want a thick smoothie, but this texture is so satisfying and worth the little effort.

-Pour the smoothie into your bowl and add your toppings. 

-Make a picture, tag me and enjoy before it melts
