There is just something about Bali that brings out the basic bitch in me, because if there was one thing I craved when going to Bali it was a giant smoothie bowl. I had read about Green Guru on a blog post about the top five smoothie bowls in Bali and it just happened to be based in Canggu where we were making a stop, it also happened to be situated on the main road between our hostel and the beach – so as you can see, it was fate that brought us together.
It is essentially a kiosk with outdoor seating and you just go up and order what you would like at the bar.
The smoothie bowls themselves are a work of art. Served in beautiful hard-carved wooden bowls the bright colours of the fruit stand out so well.
I guarantee, even the staunchest anti-instagramer will not be able to resist taking a photo of their bowl.
I opted for the “Yoda” which was a smoothie blend of banana, avocado, papaya and fresh raw spirulina, with a topping of mango, blueberries, banana, coconut flakes, granola, bee pollen and papaya. This was nice if you do not like things that are too sweet. I have since tried spirulina powder and it literally tastes like you have gone outside, scooped up a handful of soil and put it in your mouth. The spirulina tones down the sweetness and gives it a more earthy taste.
Elanor opted for the “Holly Berry” which is a blend of acai, raspberry, strawberry, blueberries, banana and papaya with a topping of granola, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and nuts. This looks more of what you might eat for breakfast. Absolutely delicious and fresh.
The bowls are only 70K which is around £3.75! This was our breakfast and they were very filling, so we were not hungry until lunch.
All bowls are served with a huge smile.
So if you do not know where to eat out in Canggu, then I would definitely recommend Green Guru for a delicious and nutritious breakfast or snack and if you are heading to Canggu then make sure this in on your list to stop by!
