Much as I like to use fresh produce, keeping frozen fruits and veggies in my freezer makes kitchen life a whole lot easier, healthy choices always within reach and food waste almost impossible.
As I wrote previous post bananas are one of my staple foods. Besides bananas I always have organic spinach, kale, berries, cherries and mangoes in my freezer. A cupful of either one combined with 2 ripe bananas is enough to create a quick, tasty and filling smoothie. When my bananas are almost over-ripe, which means totally covered with brown spots I either bake banana bread or cut them in pieces and throw them in the freezer for smoothiebowls and nicecreams.
I often drink a green smoothie in the morning, using nothing more then 2 bananas, 2 cubes of frozen spinach and a cup of water. It’s sweet, tasty, quick and you get your greens in first thing in the morning. But from time to time, mostly weekends, I like to make a smoothiebowl version, taking more time to prepare it with nice toppings and making time to enjoy it at a slower pace.
(immersion) blender or food processor
2 frozen bananas
2 cubes of frozen or a handful of fresh spinach
A sprig of mint
1 teaspoon or spirulina or chlorella (optional)
Blend until smooth and top with strawberries, mint and some seeds of choice (poppy seeds, hemp, sesame etc).
