Super healthy, detoxifying and refreshing, this Green Detox Smoothie Bowl will give you a natural boost of energy and make you feel ready to take on the day. The kale and spinach add a healthy dose of vitamins A and C, cucumber and coconut water bring the hydration, avocado has healthy fats and adds smoothness, and pear brings in just enough sweetness. I’ve added a teaspoon of MTC oil for extra energy and a scoop of protein to keep you balanced and full.
Here’s A Tip… To make this a smoothie bowl and not just a smoothie in a glass, you’ll want to use very little liquid when blending everything together. Why? Because the produce I opted to use—cucumber and pear—are water-based that if you use too much liquid to mix them together, the smoothie bowl won’t be thick. The goal is to make a thick bowl so you can eat it with a spoon. My advice is to use 1 tbsp of water to blend everything together, and then if that isn’t enough add additional coconut water 1 tablespoon at a time. If you accidentally add too much, don’t worry, just drink it as a smoothie… it’ll still be really delicious.
