Green Breakfast Bowl Serves 2 You need a pretty good blender or food processor to get it completely smooth. Our Vitamix does the job easily. But if you have a juice machine you can start by running the fennel, ginger, apple and pineapple through it and then blend the juice together with the rest of the ingredients. 1/2 avocado 1/4 fennel 1/2 handful spinach or kale 1/2 inch fresh ginger 1 apple (or banana if you prefer it sweeter) 2-inch slice pineapple 1 tbsp physsilium, hemp, flax or chia seeds 1 cup almond milk or ice cold water Add all ingredients to a blender and mix until smooth. Pour in bowls and top with seeds, nuts or granola.
