Green Smoothie Bowl with Kale, Plum and Passionfruit Granola Topping

Green Smoothie Bowl with Kale, Plum and Passionfruit Granola Topping

Okay, I am beyond excited for this recipe. This green smoothie bowl with kale, plum, and passionfruit granola topping may very well be the most exciting and all-time favourite recipe EVER! 

It may even beat my over all long time love of smoothies! Crazy, right? In fact, the smoothie bowl contains elements of 3 of my most favoured dishes to make – smoothies, breakfast (especially those involving oats and granola), and soup. 

More or less, this bowl is made in the same style as a smoothie which makes it quick and easy to make (not to mention little clean up is required). But it also contains a bit of a thicker consistency like soup, while having some traditional elements of a ‘normal’ breakfast. With so many different components, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser. 

I often have very little time in the morning, much like many of you. So I always aim to create recipes that are quick and convenient. Easy is certainly the right word to use here because all you will need is 5 minutes and 5 ingredients. You will also need a blender, a chopping board, and knife.

One of the main star ingredients in this dish is kale. We all know leafy greens are an important part of our diet and kale is no exception. It offers us a great source of dietary fibre, vitamin K, vitamin C, protein, and calcium, just to name a few. 

We then add in some banana, plum, passionfruit, and granola. Other than being super tasty, they are super packed with vitamins and minerals such as potassium, manganese, vitamin E, iron, and antioxidants. 

The green smoothie bowl makes the perfect breakfast because it’s: 

  • Super doopa healthy!
  • Easy to make
  • A great source of dietary fibre – 14g per serve
  • Something the whole family can enjoy

Similar to all of my smoothie recipes, I would not recommend storing your smoothie bowl for a long period of time. Fresh is best in this case, giving you the best taste and quality. However, in case you need to whip this up and can’t consume it straight away (maybe you need to get the kids ready or do some last minute things), you can pop this in the fridge for a short period of time. Just remember to not add your granola until you’re ready to eat it or you will end up with super soggy pieces.

And there it is. My best recipe yet (or at least until I create a new best recipe). I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
