Last week I made a joke on my Instagram about only eating one-handed meals, like a smoothie or potstickers. I never anticipated how hard it would be to feed myself once my little one arrived. I’m usually feeding him, like all of the time, so I need quick meals. Typically I’ll result to having a smoothie to get me going. It’s an easy way to get in whatever nutrients I’m lacking from not eating like I use to. So when I have a little extra time it’s nice to kick it up a notch and make a smoothie bowl. Twice as thick and topped with more fruit and granola to keep me fuller for longer.
This green citrus smoothie bowl is super thick and creamy, with the addition of avocado for a healthy fat and frozen fruits and veggies to thicken it up (adding some ice too). I personally like really sweet smoothies, so I’ll typically add a date or splash of a liquid sweetener. Maple syrup or coconut sugar works great, if you also have an insane sweet tooth like me too.
Next month I’m going to share some savory meals for all you mommas looking for a quick dish. Becoming a mother has truly opened my eyes to the ever-growing need to make good food fast. What are some of your favorite meals that require little effort/time to throw together?! Let me know below!

Green Citrus Smoothie Bowls
Yield 2 servings
- 2 large Oranges
- 1 small Avocado
- 1 cup Cauliflower, frozen
- 2 Bananas, frozen
- 2 cups of Spinach
- ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
- ½ cup Orange Juice
- Ice, as needed
- Sweetener, optional
- Measure and blend everything together until smooth. I recommend starting with the juice and greens first to avoid any chunks, then adding everything else.
- Taste and adjust the sweetness as needed, adding ice, dates or more frozen banana to thicken and sweeten, if desired.
- Pour into a bowl and top with fruit slices, coconut flakes, granola or any extras you would like, enjoy!
To help this blend smoothly, cut fruits and veggies into slices before freezing.
