Whilst I normally enjoy my Sunday mornings over an extensive breakfast at home (pancakes normally), some Sundays may also call for adventures, plans, meeting friends and such. After I’ve handed in my assignments two weeks ago, I went on a trip to Wales and then left for Germany, where I had the pleasure to host a catering for a press lunch in the context of the opening of Folkdays and Friends’ pop p shop.
I’m back in London now for a few days, soon on my way to catch up with my dear friend Olga – hence, there’s no time for an extensive breakfast with eggs, pancakes or croissants at home today neither. And let me tell you this: Also the next weeks will be kind of crazy, I’m going to Los Angeles on Tuesday! Whoop whoop – I’ve only been to the States once (to New York and Washington, five years ago), so I’m beyond excited about this trip! Any recommendations, especially with regards to healthy, vegetarian, raw or vegan places, are much appreciated!
Now let’s talk about this smoothie bowl. Smoothies are my second favourite breakfast (right after my everyday healthy breakfast bowl) – and smoothie bowls just come right after. They’re creamy, colourful, fresh, and I always feel so energized and cleansed after I had one, honestly a bit like a million dollars. Get the recipe for this beautiful purple smoothie bowl below – and have a fabulous Sunday!
Smoothie bowl with purple kale, beetroot and blueberries
For one serving.
1 handful of (purple) kale, stems removed
1 handful of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 of a beetroot (raw or cooked)
1 medjool date
1/2 of a banana
1 tablespoon old-fashioned oats
150 ml dairy or non-diary milk (I use unsweetened almond milk)
optional: 1 tablespoon lucuma powder
Toppings to your choice (I used mixed nuts, bee pollen, hemp seeds, coconut chips, lucuma powder as well as a few china rose and rambo radish sprouts which I bought at Borough Market)
Wash your kale and berries, peel the beetroot if you are using a raw beet.
Remove the pit of the date.
Add all ingredients into a blender, blend until all vegetables are well incorporated and the smoothie is creamy, but still slightly thick. Add your smoothie to a bowl, top with a few toppings of your choice – and enjoy!
