Serves: 2



  • Smoothie Bowl
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled

  • Toppings
  • Edible flowers, passionfruit, berries, banana, almonds, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), chia seeds, coconut flakes, cacao nibs or nut butter
  1. Whizz all smoothie bowl ingredients except toppings in high-speed blender until smooth and creamy. Mixture should have spoonable consistency.
  2. Pour into 2 bowls and decorate with your chosen grain-free toppings.
