The Orange Creamsicle Smoothie Bowl Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes
12 oz. (340grams) extra firm silken tofu
1 small carrot, sliced
2 tablespoons of flax meal
2 large very ripe bananas
4 large medjool dates, pitted
½ cup (4oz.) of fresh squeezed orange juice
1 teaspoon of organic orange zest
1First add the base of the smoothie bowl to the blender container, the extra firm silken tofu, the carrot and flax meal. Silken tofu blends up like a dream and adds a velvety richness to the smoothie bowl.
2Next add the sweeteners; the very ripe bananas and the dates, followed by the flavorings; the orange juice and zest and fine sea salt. Choose organic oranges, if available, to avoid zesting any unwanted and bitter tasting, chemicals.
3Secure the lid on the container and blend, starting on low and working up to medium speed until the ingredients are creamy and fully incorporated. This will take about a minute or more depending on your blender. If you have a Vitamix, use the tamper to push the food down and around toward the blade. Or stop and scrape the sides of the container as needed.
4Scoop the creamy orange mixture, which will be the consistency of loose pudding, into three bowls and top with blackberries, coconut flakes and orange slices.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
