Many smoothie joints have recently sprouted all over the city.

But none will whip up a smoothie as delicious, nutritious, inexpensive and quick as you will.

Scroll down for Smoothie bowl Variations

Use frozen fruit in your smoothies!

Why use ice, when frozen fruit will keep all your flavors intense and undiluted, and your smoothies nice and cold?

The only exception is the chocolate smoothie, which needs ice because all ingredients are at room temperature.

Bananas got too ripe? throw them in the freezer, and when ready to use them, just run your warm water faucet over them, the peel will come right off!

Smoothie Bowl: An ideally nutritious and complete meal.

Follow the recipe guidelines below, and add in your blender whatever good stuff you might have on hand, varying each time and getting an exciting variation each time:

– A handful of green leaves (kale, spinach, lettuce, parsley, mint etc…)
– Avocado, green apple, celery, cucumber, cauliflower, lemon (skin and all) etc…
– A scoop of nut or seed butter (almond, peanut, pumpkin, sunflower, cashew etc…)…
– Yogurt or buttermilk… dairy or dairy-free
– A scoop of raw oats

Use fruit juice sparingly if at all, as it will set you back with lots of unwanted sugar and calories.

Now play with your toppings:

Sliced fruit, berries, granola, coconut, cacao nibs etc…
