Smoothie Bowl — My Favourite Post-Workout Meal
By: George D Choy | Dec 12, 2018
This is such a nutrient dense meal, and also one of the tastiest. It’s my favourite meal of the week, and I eat it after every workout. The ground ginger helps reduce muscle soreness.
I’ve also shared this bowl between four people as a dessert, when entertaining guests…everyone loves it!

You can vary the fruit in the smoothie bowl, to change the flavour:
It works well (and is cheap) to use 1 raw and frozen banana as a neutral base; then change the flavour by swapping out the frozen berries for any other frozen fruit that takes your fancy, such as mango, papaya, etc.
Important: follow the order of steps below, otherwise the powders won’t mix and you’ll end up with frozen lumps.
Step by Step Instructions
Put the frozen banana, berries and peas in a bowl to defrost for 5 minutes…to avoid breaking your blender!
Liquid must go first into the blender, so add the cashew milk.
Then add the powders: ground flax seeds, ground ginger and plant protein powder.
Put 1 raw banana in the blender and roughly cut it into 4 pieces.
Add frozen peas (if you decide to swap the peas for leafy greens instead, then don’t put in the raw banana from step 3, and instead add an extra frozen banana after the peas, otherwise it the mixture will not be frozen).
Time to add the hard to blend frozen fruit: add in the frozen banana and berries.
Blend until the lumps are gone (but not too long, otherwise it will turn to liquid). Scoop it into a bowl using an eating knife. Serve your smoothie bowl with a sprinkling of your favourite toppings, such as dried coconut and nuts.
