A filling post-workout breakfast packed with nutrients, this vegan berry and coconut smoothie bowl can be made the night in advance.
Prep time: None
Cook time: 10 minutes
1 beetroot, cooked
100g frozen spinach
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp hazelnuts
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1 tbsp oats
- Thaw the spinach before beginning the berry smoothie bowl.
- Cut the strawberries, spinach and beetroot into small chunks, and add to a blender. (Use a hand processor if you prefer.)
- Pour into a bowl and whisk in the chia seeds, before putting in the fridge. This is ideally left overnight, but can also be left for at least an hour.
- When you are ready, sprinkle over the hazelnuts, coconut and oats, garnishing the vegan berry smoothie bowl with additional strawberries if you like.
This is the perfect start to any day, especially after a workout or a long run. The chia seeds, oats and spinach will not only leave you fully satisfied, but will provide you with enough protein, iron and fibre to keep your body running for the rest of the day. I always recommend adding hazelnuts and coconut for some healthy fats, and I make my smoothie the night before so the chia can best provide the function it’s designed to.
