To celebrate European Heart Failure Awareness Day (Friday 5th May), Ninja Kitchen have teamed up with olive oil company Filippo Berio to challenge some of us recipe ninjas to create a healthy smoothie recipe. We all know that smoothies are amazing for general health, while olive oil has been recognised for years as being fantastic for a healthy heart – so why not combine the two?!
Heart-Healthy Superfood Smoothie Bowl
I fancied going down the super green, tropical vibe in celebration of the nicer weather Spring is treating us to, using Filippo Berio’s Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil which offers a delicate punch of flavour but without being overpowering and works wonderfully with the other ingredients. Enjoy!
- 1 frozen banana
- Large handful frozen pineapple chunks
- Large handful frozen mango chunks
- 1/2 avocado
- Handful spinach leaves
- 1 tsp any green superfood or matcha powder
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 20ml Filippo Berio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 150ml coconut water
- To decorate - fresh strawberries, freeze-dried raspberries, pumpkin seeds, bee pollen
Simply place all of the smoothie ingredients into you Ninja Kitchen Nutri Ninja and blend on a high setting for at least 1 minute until smooth, like ice cream. Tip out into a bowl then arrange your toppings to make it look Instagram-worthy. Enjoy straight away!
