Always when I see green Bowls I decided to eat more greens. This delicious Green Antioxidant Smoothie-Bowl is a new start for me to eat more green during the week. My hubby always say he don’t like to eat this “Hulk” bowl because of the color? Hey Man! What’s wrong with that color? Green stays for live, for freshness, for healthiness. I love to look at my bowl and I really get mouthwatering. Because I always mix up sweet fruits and healthy greens my green bowls become a sweet flavor and they are really delicious. You can easily hide greens in every smoothie you drink and you will not taste it when you don’t add too much. But you will get the healthy benefit.
In the spring and summer time it is so easy to get into the garden or wherever you want outside and pick up some dandelion. Enible wild herbs can be used very easily in your smoothie. Enible wild herbs have very special health benefits you don’t find in any other green. Dandelion is great to get B complex vitamins, trace minerals, organic sodium, and even some vitamin D too. We often have Vitamin-D shortage because we are not outside enough to get Vitamin-D from the sun and there are less food ingredients contains Vitamin-D. Dandelion also contains protein, more than spinach. It has been eaten for thousands of years as a food and was used for skin problems, blood disorders and depression. You can use dandelion optional in this bowl if you like to try it out but also eat the bowl without.
Furthermore I add some spinach leaves, because Spinach is one of my favorite greens to add into a smoothie bowl because the taste is not that strong it almost every mixer can mix it. You can use frozen or fresh spinach. Spinach is an excellent source of vitamins like Vitamin-K or Vitamin-A. Vitamin K is very important for maintaining bone health and it is difficult to find vegetables which are richer in vitamin K than spinach.
As you know I love to add superfoods in my smoothie bowls. So I pimp up my smoothie with more green healthiness I use “Detox Blend” from boostyourself. Detox is a powerful superfood blend designed to give your body the perfect combination of nature’s most nourishing, cleansing and potent superfoods. Great for healthy weight loss and rich in essential nutrients and vitamins. This is a super-easy way to supercharge your health.

I use dates in all my smoothies as a natural sweetener. Normally 2 are enough to get a sweet taste but you can you use more when you like it more sweet. The banana also gives a natural sweetness. Ripe banana are the really best to add in a smoothie.
