Sweet Spinach, Pea, and Basil Smoothie Bowl

A deliciously healthy smoothie bowl made with ingredients that you can find in your local supermarket. Don’t worry; this doesn’t taste like vegetable soup: the flavours of the fruits are dominant.

1 slice pineapple
1 apple
1 kiwi fruit

For blending

2 frozen bananas
Large handful spinach
Large handful frozen peas
Handful oats
15-20 basil leaves

Fresh, dried, or frozen fruit
Nuts and seeds
Coconut flakes
