Our friends the “Wasser Twins” Laurel and Becca love to start their days with a green smoothie bowl. It’s like a smoothie, but slightly thicker and eaten with a spoon. You can make it your own by adding delicious toppings. PaleoKrunch is the perfect topper!
Laurel is the younger of the two by 5 minutes and a survivor of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She is remarkably the first cancer survivor to become a professional triathlete. In 2008, Laurel was named Rookie of the Year her first year as a professional.

Trailblazer Smoothie Bowl
1 banana, quartered and frozen
1 apple, quartered, core sliced out
2 large handfuls of spinach (about 2 packed cups)
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1/4 cup cow or almond milk, plus another 1/4 cup to help blend, if necessary
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. A Vitamix or other powerful blender will zap through this easily. Standard blenders, like the ones we use, might need up to another ¼ cup of milk to blend the ingredients.
Top with your favorite fresh fruit, seeds, and nuts. Our current favorite combo: Steve’s PaleoKrunch, hemp seeds, blueberries and cashews, shown here.
