(health) The Body Camp Ibiza Smoothie Bowl aka the ultimate Instagram breakfast

Feedback from the husband is that the site is looking a bit full of ‘serious, self-help hippy shit’ at the moment.

"It IS January!" I say, "and so the perfect time to spout self-help hippy shit actually." But he may have a point.

So here’s a pretty and delicious smoothie bowl recipe from The Body Camp Ibiza to break things up a bit.

Still great for hippies and health nuts (vegan and full of goodness) but equally great for impressing on Instagram...

The Body Camp Smoothie Bowl

YOU NEED:

  • Food Processor
  • Measuring Cups
  • Sieve


INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Cups of Buckwheat (buckwheat is ace because has a gum-like fibre which soothes the digestive tract. It also contains lots of non-digestible fibre which acts as a probiotic, feeding good bacteria in the gut)
  • 1 Tbsp of Nut Butter
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 3 Cups of Almond Milk
  • 1 Avocado

(toppings)

  • granola (preferably DIY)
  • goji berries
  • toasted flaked almonds
  • blueberries
  • desiccated coconut

METHOD:

Soak the buckwheat overnight (you can get away with just an hour but it won’t be as smooth).

Give it a good rinse under cold running water until the water runs clear. Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend together until nice and smooth.

Then it's time to get artistic with your toppings (the dark green pattern here is made by mixing a small amount of the smoothie with chlorella) And that’s it! Simple. Delicious. Gorgeous.
