Add a splash of colour to your morning with this vibrant breakfast bowl of blended avocado, spinach and nut butter, topped with fresh fruit and seeds

  • Vegan
  • Vegetarian
Nutrition: per serving


  • 2 bananas , sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado , stoned, peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 1 small ripe mango , stoned, peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 100g spinach (fresh or frozen)
  • 250ml milk (unsweetened almond or coconut milk works well)
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened almond or peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp clear honey , agave or maple syrup (optional)

For the seed mix

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp linseeds
  • 4 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 4 tbsp coconut flakes
  • 4 tbsp flaked almonds
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp clear honey , agave or maple syrup

To serve

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


  • STEP 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.)

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.
