The Clean Green Smoothie Bowl Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes
2 large ripe bananas
½ cup (4 oz.) of full fat coconut milk (the kind that comes in a can)
2 teaspoons of raw ginger, skin on and sliced (1" piece)
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of frozen pineapple chunks
2 cups of fresh spinach (packed)
1First add the bananas and the coconut milk to your blender container. Feel free to use regular or lite coconut milk if you prefer. But, full fat coconut milk makes for a richer, creamier and more filling smoothie bowl.
2Next add the raw ginger and the salt. So why not peel the ginger? Simply because it’s not necessary! Fresh ginger peel will be undetectable after blending. Leaving the peel on also wastes less of this flavorful, root not to mention time digging around all those nooks and crannies with a vegetable peeler or a spoon.
3Now it’s time for the frozen pineapple chunks and the spinach. 2 cups of packed spinach is about 2 large handfuls.
4Secure 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 just stop and scrape the sides of the container as needed.
5Pour the sweet green mixture which will be the consistency of a thick smoothie into two bowls and top with fresh figs, pineapple and coconut flakes.

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.
