This smoothie has all your morning protein needs packed into one, admittedly giant, bowl. It’s great for a post-exercise meal.

Cook Time:
5 minutes

Longevity Smoothie Bowl Recipe


11⁄2 cups almond milk
1 large frozen banana, cut into 1-inch pieces*
1 cup blackberries or blueberries
1⁄2 cup chopped kale
1⁄2 cup baby spinach leaves
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon flax seeds
1⁄4 teaspoon turmeric
1⁄2 cup ice
1 teaspoon cinnamon, optional

Suggested Toppings:
Fresh sliced fruit such as bananas, strawberries, or blackberries
Sliced almonds
Flax seeds


Blend smoothie ingredients until smooth, adding more milk if necessary – the consistency should be a bit thicker than a drinkable smoothie, since you will eat this with a spoon.
Pour into a bowl and add toppings.

*Be sure to use a large frozen banana or the texture of the smoothie bowl won’t be thick enough.
