Smoothie Success With Ellie Bullen


A post shared by ELLIE BULLEN (@elsas_wholesomelife) on


Move over, acai — there's a new bowl in town. With a name like Elsa's Wholesome Life, you might expect Bali-based, Aussie-born nutritionist Elsa (Ellie) Bullen to be a bit, well, prim. But one quick scroll through Bullen's delectable website (and gorgeous cookbook of the same name) proves that though her approach is wholesome, her reality is truly decadent.

With a recipe library that runs the gamut from rainbow rice-paper rolls to creamy vegan mac-no-cheese, Bullen has made a name for herself creating recipes that appeal to the belly (and the eyes) while maintaining responsible ingredient rosters. Where she truly shines is at breakfast, creating smoothie bowls that are true works of edible art. Let acai get all the glory — Bullen's take on a buzzy green tea smoothie bowl has us forgetting coffee even exists.

She was kind enough to share her Green Tea Bowl recipe from her Elsa's Wholesome Life cookbook with us, and we've vowed to never be without matcha powder again. It's that good. 

Green Tea Bowl

2 peeled frozen bananas

1/2 cup almond or other non-dairy milk

1 medjool date, pitted

40g baby spinach leaves

1 teaspoon matcha powder

2 ice cubes

1/4 cup granola

1/2 cup seasonal fruit (fresh berries or figs)

Edible flowers to serve (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth and creamy. Top with granola and artful fruit and flower arrangement and enjoy.
