Banana-Avocado ‘Ice Cream’

There is something so fundamentally magical (and naughty!) about a bowl of ‘ice cream’ for breakfast. Made with nutrient packed, creamy, creamy avocado, speckled banana, indulgent cinnamon, and whole leaf wheatgrass powder, mornings have never been so sweet.  Don't forget your Susty wooden spoon and speckled blue napkin for when you dive into this bowl of green goodness :)

Ingredients [1 smoothie bowl]
1 medium banana, peeled and frozen
¼ ripe avocado, peel removed
½ cup fresh spinach or kale
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground wheatgrass powder (optional)
5 ice cubes
½ - 1 cup filtered water (depending on desired consistency)

Place all of the ingredients in a high speed blender; start with ½ cup water, then while blending, gradually adding more until the ‘ice cream’ has a soft-serve creamy, creamy like consistency. Pour into your favorite bowl and sprinkle on your favorite toppings, enjoy!
