Mixed Berries, Baby Spinach, Oatmeal Smoothie Bowl

I enjoyed this smoothie and love the nutritional benefits that come with the main ingredients. Here is a brief summary:

Strawberries are sodium free, fat free and have no cholesterol and are low in calories.

Blueberries are high in potassium and vitamin C.

Oatmeal contains a soluble fiber, can improve blood sugar and can lower cholesterol.

Baby Spinach is packed with vitamins and improves heart health, contains folate which is vital for a healthy pregnancy and it is one of the best sources of plant-based iron available.

Ingredients:

500g Frozen Mixed Berries

200g Oatmeal (uncooked)

250 – 350ml Plain Yoghurt

A handful of fresh baby spinach

Honey to taste

To Garnish:

Orange slices

Moringa Powder

Cinnamon Powder

Chia Seeds

Method:

  1. Place the berries, oatmeal, spinach and yoghurt in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth. If your blender needs water, rather start with about 3 tablespoons of water so the water is at the bottom, then add your fruits, yoghurt, spinach and oats.
  3. Once your smoothie is all smoothed out, add your honey – as much honey as you would like.
  4. Blend again for a few seconds.
  5. Serve into your chosen bowls and garnish with the orange, chia, cinnamon and moringa. You can drizzle with a bit more honey if you would like.

If the smoothie is too thick for you, add a bit of water or milk. A tablespoon at a time until you get the consistency you prefer.

Enjoy.
