The Lovely Lemon Smoothie Bowl Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes
2 large ripe bananas
12 oz. (340 grams) of extra firm silken tofu
4 large medjool dates, pitted
2 oz. (¼ cup) of fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons of organic lemon zest
1 tablespoon of flax meal
½ teaspoon of turmeric
1/8 teaspoon of fine sea salt
1First, add the base and the sweeteners to the blender container: the silken tofu, the bananas, and the dates. Very ripe bananas are naturally very sweet and, along with dates, make for a pleasantly sweet smoothie bowl without adding any refined sugar.
2Next, zest and juice a medium-sized lemon and add the zest and juice, along with the flax meal, turmeric, and salt to the blender container. Turmeric, which is a potent anti-inflammatory, creates the lovely yellow color.
3Securely attach the lid to your container and blend at medium speed until creamy, scraping down the sides as necessary or by using the tamper (with a Vitamix) to push the food down and around toward the blade. This will take about a minute or more, depending on what type of blender you are using.
4Scoop the creamy lemony mixture, which will be the consistency of loose custard into three bowls and top with fresh blueberries.

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.
