Vegan green smoothie breakfast bowl || The Smoothie Lover

A good indication of how busy I am is the amount of music with lyrics I get to listen to. I am a music addict. Seriously. I just don’t work well without my daily “sound-dose” of Passenger, Angus & Julia Stone, Stu Larsen or Jack Johnson. The music is on non-stop when I’m home. Without lyrics when I’m doing homework (Nils Frahm is amazing guys) and with lyrics when I have actual free time. So if I haven’t been listening to music with lyrics for while it is either because A) I haven’t been at home or B) whenever I’m home I’m doing homework.

I have not listened to music for a week by now. Not at all. Not even just 10 minutes. Aka. I’ve been pretty busy. Hence the lack of posts and cooking.

I’m sorry. This post wasn’t meant to be all about busyness. I just wanted to tell that I’ve missed writing and cooking (well,  I actually got to cook dinner last Sunday) so much. So I was very happy when the first block this morning was cancelled. Time for making a special breakfast (not that I don’t like my usual greek yoghurt with granola).

Did you know it is pancake day today? I didn’t. That is such a shame. How could I miss this important day. I actually even considered making healthy pancakes this morning, but decided a smoothie bowl would be better.

Which was a great idea. It turned out so good. I’m just sad I didn’t make pancakes too ;)

Green Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 cup very loosely packed kale (I store mine in the freezer, which keeps it fresh longer)
  • 1/2 apple
  • 1 handful seedless grapes
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • Granola for topping (I used quinoa granola)

Instructions

Place everything (except the granola) in a blender or powerful food processor and pulse until there are no lumps left. Serve immediately topped with granola.

Enjoy!

    I hardly listen to music, so you can imagine the music I listen when I’m busy. Sounds logical that proportions of lyrics and busyness :P
    If I don’t listen to music for a week… is that I haven’t use the car!!

    Love your smoothie, it looks nice, and well, I can’t imagine those flavors together, I should try!! It sounds disconcerting, I think it has to be good, and at the same time I’m not sure if I like :P

    Well, it wouldn’t be so difficult to love this, cos with granola everything is better :P

  6. Oh gosh Josefine! How can you go a week with out listening to music!!! :) I think I would have a heart attack if I went a day without my Mp3 player (thanks for shouting out artist you listen):)!! I don’t know how you do it.. Lovely green smoothie in a bowl. FYI I didn’t know it was pancake day either :)

  8. This looks delicious! I missed pancake day as well :( So sad. I’ve never made a smoothie bowl before but they’re such a good idea, I’m going to try this recipe!

  9. Im with you on the music front – I love having music on all the time :) And I also didn’t realise it was pancake day until I saw it here on your blog, so I missed out as well. I might have to do a belated pancake day cook up I think – any excuse! ;) I love a good green smoothie breakfast bowl, and I am LOVING your photography of late, such beautiful styling! x

  10. This looks amazing! I love the vibrant colours and the whole freshness :)
