Maybin’s has had a Bali-inspired makeover since Carly came back to the Roman Road from travelling. As promised, we’re bringing you Carly’s recipes for her healthy smoothie bowls.
‘Super-charged with goodness, our vitality bowls are the new breakfast trend everyone is whizzing up. Inspired by Bali, they get your taste buds buzzing and give you a nutritional health kick to your morning. Get that vitamin C boost you need to rev up your immune system after a hard weekend.
‘Along with the fact they are filled to the brim with antioxidants, the smoothie bowls also have superfood ingredients which are incredibly high in protein and B-vitamins. For fussy eaters, there are dairy free options, gluten free (without the granola). Or perhaps for you classic meat eaters, it’s a change from the morning fry up or a bacon sarnie.
‘We have two delicious and refreshing bowls currently on the menu: the Lady Gaga ‘Bright Pink in colour’ and the Green Peace ‘You know it’s the good stuff when it’s green’.’
The Lady Gaga
Half a mango
Half a passion fruit
2 squeezed oranges
1 handful of ice
Blend the banana, mango, three of the strawberries and the orange in a food mixer. Put in the base of the bowl, surrounded by the granola and ice. Decorate with the passion fruit and the remaining strawberries, and enjoy!
Handful of spinach
Half a mango
2 slices of pineapple
1 tbsp of spirulina
4 strawberry slices (for the topping)
1 handful of granola
Put the banana, spinach, pineapple, mango and spirulina in a food mixer and blend. Put it in your favourite breakfast bowl with ice and granola, and top with strawberry slices.

As a not-for-profit media organisation using ethical journalism to strengthen communities, we have not put our digital content behind a paywall or membership scheme as we think the benefits of an independent, local publication should be available to everyone living in our area.
If a fraction of the local 40,000 residents donated two pounds a month to Roman Road LDN it would be enough for our editorial team to serve the area full time and be beholden only to the community. Media is accountable to those who finance it. We want to be accountable to readers. Not to advertisers, not to local government. To you. A pound at a time, we believe we can get there.
