As halloween is approaching I decided to make a Frankenstein smoothie bowl for breakfast this week. I blended three frozen bananas with half a mango and a bag of spinach (160g.) Normally I would split the mixture into bowls and then add different fruit/ nut/ seed toppings like this pink smoothie bowl. Instead, I put the mixture in a glass jar, topped it with blueberries (for Frankenstein’s hair) and used a marker to draw his face on the jar.
We love green smoothies and especially green smoothie bowls. They are a great way to add greens to your kids’ diet without them really noticing. I find when I blend spinach with frozen banana that I can add so much more without it dominating the taste. Once the mixture starts to thaw you can taste it more but if your kids are anything like mine the mixture doesn’t have too much time to melt! Add the spinach handfuls at a time and taste the mixture, you will know your kids pallet best. You may need to start with a smaller amount of spinach and slowly increase the amount each time you make it.
I made this in my food processor as my blender is broken, it definitely works better in a high speed blender.
