Looking for a healthy breakfast to reset your body, but don’t have the time to cook? No problem! This smoothie recipe is no-bake, vegan, gluten-free, and full of amazing vitamins and minerals to keep your body fuelled for the entire day (or until lunch ;))
I love to add in a lot of veggies to my smoothie to make sure it isn’t too sweet and only filled with fruits (which could spike your blood sugar). I decided to use simple ingredients that almost everyone has in their kitchen; frozen spinach, frozen berries, banana, chia seeds, almond milk (or milk of choice), protein powder (I use Manitoba Harvest vegan protein powder), cinnamon, and any toppings you’d like!
This smoothie is:
- Sweet, but not too sweet
Feel free to eat this at home or put it in a travel mug and drink it on the go! I personally prefer eating it with a spoon, and it makes me eat it slower than if I’d chug it, so I feel fuller longer.
Now, let’s get in to this recipe! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram in your remakes with the hashtag #ririsrecipes !
5 Minute Smoothie Bowl (Vegan, Gluten-free)
Cook Time: No bake
- 2 frozen spinach nuggets
- 2/3 cup almond milk
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries* (I use strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries)
- 1 small banana or half a large banana (fresh or frozen; but frozen will make smoothie thicker!)
- 1 scoop protein powder
- dash of cinnamon
- 1 tsp flax seeds
- Toppings: bran cereal, granola, nuts, seeds, more fruit, hemp hearts, etc
Add in all ingredients to a blender in order and blend until you get a thick consistency. Pour into a bowl, garnish with your favourite toppings, and enjoy!
*Note: I prefer using all frozen fruits and vegetables because I like my smoothies very thick, but if you prefer thinner, you can use fresh berries and a banana.
**Note: I also made my smoothie and added plain non-fat dairy-free greek yogurt, and the result was amazing!
