GREEN SMOOTHIE BOWL

hezelah green smoothie breakfast bowlSummer is officially here, and every day is getting warmer and warmer. Suddenly I do not like to eat hot porridge anymore, so leaving it aside for a while. Nowadays, the body wants light, fresh, easy to digest, and cooling foods to maintain the balance with the heat on the outside. I like to notice all the changes in the environment that so powerfully affect our bodies and minds, and I want to support my wellbeing with right thoughts, activity, and food.

When it comes to food, summer it’s all about smoothies, soups, salads, chia puddings, soaked oats, fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables. I make at least one smoothie every day, usually as a first meal of the day. Sometimes I make one smoothie to drink in the morning, and another one for breakfast, thick and creamy, that I serve in a bowl with many delicious and nourishing toppings. I like to play with different combinations of fruits, veggies, and superfoods to see what works for me, but if I don’t write it down, I quickly forget what I’ve used, so I better share it here.

Zelena smoothie zdjela
Ljeto je i službeno pokucalo na vrata i svaki dan postaje nam sve toplije i toplije. Odjednom mi se više ne jede topla kaša za doručak pa ju stavljam sa strane na neko vrijeme. Ovih dana tijelo traži laganu, svježu, lako probavljivu hranu, te hranu koja hladi kako bi održavalo ravnotežu s visokim temperaturama kojima smo izloženi ljeti. Baš volim primijetiti sve promjene u sezoni i okolini koje tako snažno utječu na naše tijelo i um, i želim podržati svoje zdravlje s potrebnim mislima, aktivnostima i hranom.

Kada je riječ o hrani, ljeto je vrijeme za smoothieje, juhe, salate, chia pudinge, zobene s jogurtom, te svježe i sezonsko voće i povrće. Sad po ljeti, svaki dan napravim barem jedan smoothie, obično kao prvi obrok u danu. Ponekad napravim jedan koji popijem, a onda drugi koji mi je doručak, gust i kremast, kojeg onda poslužim u zdjeli s puno ukusnih i hranjivih dodataka. Volim se igrati s različitim kombinacijama voća, povrća i dodataka da vidim što mi se sviđa, ali ako ne zapišem recept, brzo zaboravim što sam sve koristila, pa je bolje da one najbolje objavim ovdje.  

Ispod je recept za omiljenu kremastu i gustu zelenu smoothie zdjelu  – ukusna je, osvježavajuća i prepuna zdravih sastojaka. Pokušajte, probajte, igrajte se, prilagodite svojim željama i uživajte u procesu i rezultatu!

  • 1/2 avokada
  • šaka špinata

  • 1 jušna žlica zdrobljenih lanenih sjemenki (ili lanenog brašna)
  • 1 jušna žlica sjemenki konoplje
  • 1 mekana datulja (potopite u vruću vodu na nekoliko minuta ako je pretvrda)
  • 2 dl biljnog mlijeka (npr. kokosovo, sojino ili bademovo)

Preporučeni dodaci (po želji): granola, jagode, sjemenke suncokreta i bundeve, čips od kokosa.
