        green kiwi smoothie bowl

        By Buffy from Be Good Organics

        After recovering from Graves disease with the help of a plant-based diet and lifestyle, Buffy founded Be Good Organics so she could share her knowledge and passion about this lifestyle with others. Since then, Be Good Organics has become New Zealand’s most well loved and frequented plant-based blog, with a global audience of now over 150,000. Head on over there now for more deliciously simple plant-based recipes, and easy-to-understand nutritional information! Insta @begoodorganics or www.begoodorganics.com

        Ingredients

        • 1 cup oob organic frozen banana
        • 1/2 cup oob organic NEW Smoothie Mix Supercharge (kale, kiwifruit, apple, mint)
        • 1/2 cup spinach /silverbeet/kale
        • 1/3 cup water
        • 1 tbsp chia seeds
        • 2 tbsp / 1/8 avocado (optional)
        • 1/8 tsp spirulina (optional)
        • Toppings
        • Fresh kiwifruit (diced), more smoothie mix, mint and chia seeds

        Method

        1. Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender for 30 seconds until super smooth, scraping down the edges after 20 seconds as needed
        2. Top to your heart’s content! I love using some more smoothie mix alongside some extra chia seeds and mint personally. You could also add some granola or nuts/seeds to make it extra filling.Notes:
          The avocado is optional, it gives a slightly creamier texture and taste, but the bowl is still delicious without (even more fruity and refreshing!).
          The chia seeds are also optional, but help to keep the bowl nice and thick especially if you’re taking it on the run.
          The spirulina is optional, but adds extra nutrients such as protein and iron. Instead you could also add chlorella, your favourite greens powder blend, or even matcha powder.
          Use whatever dark leafy greens you have available (or in the garden) – spinach, silverbeet, and kale all work well.

                banana split freakshake!

                Whether you are looking healthy dessert ideas or want to take your post workout snack to the next level, this one’s for you! This recipe has been created by Amanda, one of our fans here in Omaha!


                This dairy free freakshake combines classic flavour combinations of banana, caramel, nuts and chocolate. It’s packed with fibre and 41g of protein per serve, plus all the goodness of oob organic bananas, with the option to indulge in a drizzle of toasty coconut caramel to complete the picture.

                We went dairy free for this one but you can alternate with delicious organic dairy milk + yogurt options which is really tasty too. Make the batches of brownie bites and coconut caramel ahead of time, these can be kept in fridge until you are ready to construct your organic freakshake.

                Reduce wasting fresh bananas by keeping some oob organic frozen banana in your freezer, and just use only what you need when you’re in the mood for a Caramel Banana Split Freakshake.


                Banana Nut Smoothie Makes 2 servings

                • 2 cups almond milk
                • 1 cup coconut yogurt
                • 1 cup oob organic frozen banana
                • 2 scoops protein powder of choice
                • 1 tbsp chia seed
                • 1 tbsp nut butter
                • 2 tbsp stevia
                • Cinnamon to taste

                Pop all ingredients into a blender until smooth and serve.

                Banana Nice Cream

                • 1 cup oob organic frozen banana

                  Blend frozen banana in processor until creamy consistency. Use for freakshake immediately or store in freezer.

                Choc Banana Brownie Bites Makes 12 bites

                • 2 cups defrosted oob organic banana
                • ½ cup nut butter (we used smooth peanut butter)
                • 2 Tbls cacao powder
                • 2 Tbls stevia
                • 2 scoop plant protein powder (better consistency than whey protein for this recipe)

                Blend all ingredients in food processor until smooth and combined. Pop into a cake tin and sprinkle with dessicated coconut to garnish. Bake 180 degrees C for 10 – 15 minutes until firm to the touch. Once cooled, cut into 12 portions and store in the fridge.

                Toasty Coconut Caramel

                • 100 ml coconut milk
                • 25g coconut sugar (alternatives: maple syrup, honey or agave)

                Pop all ingredients into small saucepan and bring to the boil stirring constantly. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes until the mixture starts to thicken. Once glossy and slightly thickened, take off the heat and allow to cool. Store in the fridge.

                Assembly

                1. Prepare your brownie bites and toasty coconut caramel ahead of time.
                2. Chill serving glasses in fridge. Melt 4 squares of dark chocolate and 1 tsp of coconut oil for the garnish. Using a spoon, drip melted chocolate around the rim of chilled glass before coating in dessicated coconut. Drip melted chocolate onto the inside of the glass for decoration.
                3. Prepare your Banana-Nut Smoothie divide this into the two garnished glasses. Pop these in fridge as you prepare your nice cream.
                4. Prepare your Banana Nice Cream, and place a good dollop of this on top of the Banana-Nut Smoothie as desired. Balance a brownie bite on the edge of the glass, using some caramel or melted chocolate to secure.
                5. Time to bring this bad boy home… drizzle with coconut caramel and finish with some chopped nuts of your choice (we used 3 x organic raw almonds).
                6. The nice cream will start melting into the smoothie along with the caramel and it’s all deliciousness. Devour immediately.
