Green Protein Smoothie Bowl

This thick green protein smoothie bowl is a quick, satisfying healthy breakfast that is ready in no time. Dairy free and gluten free. Paleo and vegan options.

Course Breakfast
Categories dairy free, egg free, gluten free, grain free, paleo, vegan, vegetarian
Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 smoothie bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 large handful baby spinach
  • 1 small frozen banana or half of a large one
  • 1 - 1 and 1/2 cups frozen zucchini chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (carton, not canned), almond milk or another milk or choice
  • 1 serve vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2 tsp peanut butter (swap to cashew butter for paleo)
  • 2 tsp maca powder - OPTIONAL

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and process until nice and smooth. If it is too thick to blend, add a little extra coconut milk, or water, just until it's blend-able. You should get a nice thick, creamy consistency, almost like a soft serve.

  2. Scoop into a bowl. Add toppings of choice and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*You can use a plant-based protein powder for a dairy-free and vegan friendly bowl, or use a whey based protein. I usually use a vanilla whey protein in this bowl.

*You can add peanut butter or a different nut butter e.g. cashew butter to this smoothie bowl. It's REALLY good with cashew butter!
