If you have been reading KHGS for a while, you will know what a big green smoothie fan I am. You will also probably know that I like to eat my smoothies, rather unusually for some, from a bowl. I find that this helps me to slow down my eating (leading to improved digestion) and making me feel fuller. I also enjoy ‘bulking up’ my smoothies with the addition of toppings. To make this not quite as frosty as my normal smoothies I left out the ice for a lovely room temperature treat. To make this take-to-work friendly, just bottle up your smoothie, pour into a bowl at work and add your toppings (taken to work in a little tub or jar). You might get some strange looks but you’ll be the one laughing when you have glowing skin and great immunity from all the greens!
Apple Green Smoothie (in a bowl) – serves 1, vegan
- 1 apple
- 3 handfuls of spinach
- 1 cup of Alpro unsweetened almond milk
- 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder or 1/2 cup of Alpro vanilla pouring yoghurt
- 1/4 – 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
Blend all ingredients together until smooth and thick (you might need to stop the blender and push down the ingredients and then blend again). Serve in a bowl topped with granola, chopped nuts, seeds, dried fruit or nut butter. I used some tahini and my amazing Sweet and Salty Nutty Topping.
Here’s all of my Alpro #deskfest recipes:

Have you tried eating a smoothie from a bowl before? I’ve really enjoyed trying to think a little outside the box when it comes to healthy breakfasts you can eat at your desk! What would be your perfect deskfest?
