  • 2 tbsp clear honey, agave or maple syrup

For the topping

  • 175g mixed fresh fruit, chopped (we used banana, mango, raspberries and blueberries)

Method

  1. Slice the bananas and arrange over a small baking tray lined with parchment. Freeze for 2 hrs until solid. (You can now transfer the banana slices to a freezer bag and freeze for 3 months, or continue with the recipe.)

  2. For the seed mix, heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a baking tray with parchment. Tip the seeds, coconut and almonds into a bowl, add the cinnamon and drizzle over the honey, agave or maple syrup. Toss until everything is well coated, then scatter over the baking tray in an even layer. Bake for 10-15 mins, stirring every 5 mins or so, until the seeds are lightly toasted. Leave to cool. Will keep in an airtight container for up to 1 month.

  3. Put the avocado, mango, spinach, milk, nut butter, frozen banana slices and honey (if using) in a blender and whizz to a thick smoothie consistency – you may have to scrape down the sides with a spoon a few times. Divide between two bowls and arrange the fruit on top. Scatter 1-2 tbsp of the seed mix over each bowl and eat straight away.

Too much sugar! Suggested daily sugar consumption for a man is 37.5g and 25g for a woman. This exceeds both at 48g!

There is a major issue with this bowl: It has 39 grams of sugar!! That's 10 grams more sugar than a can of coke or the same amount of sugar as 3 bars of dairy milk chocolate!!! Besides cigarettes, sugar is the number one cause of major health problems on the planet. Problem is, most people think sugar is only contained in sweet drinks and desserts. Yes the bowl of fruit has many nutrients and antioxidants, however, this can still be achieved by lowering the amount of fruit and avoiding the 2 tablespoons of honey.

I made a version of this today, and it was really good. I basically halved the fruit amounts but kept the same amount of liquid (250 ml) so I could have a regular drinking smoothie. I skipped the nut butter and honey, and added a tsp of matcha powder to recreate a green matcha smoothie I have had before. Will definitely be adding this recipe to my regular smoothies, makes a nice change from the berry banana combo.
