If you follow me on my Instagram you know how much I enjoy my green smoothie in the morning. Yep, there’s nothing better than waking up early and getting in those serving of fruit and vegetables before you start your busy day. They are literally the best way to load up on nutrients and support my plant-powered lifestyle. Smoothie bowls though are even better and I’ll share more on that later! Here is one of my favorites, Green Hemp Seed Smoothie Bowl packed with plant protein fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making it an excellent option for breakfast, dessert, or even a mid-day snack.

Green Hemp Seed Smoothie Bowl

One of my favorite things about this Green Hemp Seed Smoothie Bowl is that it’s so simple (as always), requiring just 10 minutes to make, and entirely customizable. This recipe is just a basic round-up of ingredients for you to start with but you can totally experiment with a variety of ingredients and make this bowl your own. What to learn more about How To Build A Smoothie Bowl, and below are some ingredients I think you could play with to get you started!


  • Chopped walnuts
  • Cacao nibs
  • Flaxseed
  • Oats
  • Goji berries 
  • Orange zest
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Peaches
  • Raspberries
  • Almond butter


When balanced correctly, smoothies can be the perfect meal replacement and are great for when on the go. I usually like to make some version of my Ultimate Green Smoothie a few times a week for breakfast. But ever so often I pour my smoothie into a bowl, topping it real pretty, slowing down, and digging into a nourishing smoothie bowl. But which one is better? Maybe this information will help you to decide.

It’s all about digestion, absorption, satisfaction, and enjoyment. And since digestion begins in your mouth and chewing your food (thanks to the yummy toppings!) you release digestive enzymes and so the process begins. Drinking a smoothie basically delivers you from straw to the esophagus. Skipping this first digestive stage altogether.

And, chewing helps us release nutrients, so the more we chew, the more nutrients we get.

I doubt the smoothie bowls started as a means to provide better digestion and meal satisfaction, but they’re certainly a lot more benefits than a smoothie. Plus aren’t they just more fun?!

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, previously sliced and frozen
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 2 large handfuls organic spinach
  • 1 small handful organic kale (large stems removed)
  • 1 1/22 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 Tbsp chia seed
  • 4 Tbsp hemp seeds
  • Optional: 2 Tbsp salted creamy almond or peanut butter
  • TOPPINGS (optional)
  • Pumpkin seed granola
  • Raw or roasted nut butter
  • Shredded unsweetened coconut
  • Chia Seeds
  • Hemp seeds


  1. Add all smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Add more almond milk (or water) to thin.
  2. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more ripe banana for added sweetness, more spinach for a bright green hue, or almond milk for creaminess.
  3. For more protein, add nut butter! This also offsets / enhances the natural sweetness of the smoothie.
  4. Divide between 2 serving bowls and top with desired toppings!
  5. Best when fresh, though leftovers can be kept in jars in the fridge for up to 1-2 days. Enjoy!
