Green Smoothie Bowl with Pea Shoots & Edible Flowers

Mary Ackley


Makes 1 Smoothie Bowl

  • 1 Banana (sliced, frozen)
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup pea shoots, chopped (may substitute sunflower shoots)
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1/4 c. nonfat greek yogurt
  • dash cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (or any citrus juice)
  • 1/2-3/4 c. water

Optional Toppings (get creative!):

  • Shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • Amaranth microgreens
  • Chia seeds
  • Sliced almonds
  • Edible viola petals (or any edible flowers - make sure these are organic and untreated)

Note: You can find edible flowers, shoots & microgreens in our ready-to-eat salads online at Washington's Green Grocer or From the Farmer)


Combine all smoothie ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a bowl and add toppings as desired.

Feel free to experiment with this recipe! For example, try adding 1/2 scoop of your favorite protein powder and increasing the liquid for a higher protein smoothie; use milk or nut milk instead of water for a creamier smoothie; or substitute different types of greens for the spinach and pea shoots.
