Organic Avenue smoothie bowl and how to Do-It-Yourself

I am one of those who could never do a smoothie diet, let alone a juice cleanse. After having a smoothie I am always left craving for some solid food..something crunchy. The only form of smoothie I really like is the smoothie bowl - looks and feels little bit more like an actual meal.
I recently tried the Titan Smoothie Bowl at Organic Avenue but as having organic food for lunch everyday is an expensive habit in New York, I figured out the bowl is super easy to make at home. See below for the ingredients and instruction.
According to organicavenue.com: This nutrient-dense smoothie is packed with leafy greens, grasses, and algae that boost your energy and alkalize your body. Alkalizing fruit and protein-packed hemp seeds make this a perfectly balanced treat to enjoy at any time of day. 

And now get back to the kitchen and do-it-yourself.

For the Green Smoothie Bowl (adjust the quantities how you like)
1/4 cup milk of your choice (almond, soy, full-fat)
1 ripe banana
1 cup fresh baby spinach
1/4 cup frozen mango

For the Toppings:
sliced bananas
granola
hemp seeds
(more ideas: shredded coconut, chia seeds, honey, sliced kiwis, fresh berries, almonds, pumpkin seeds)

In a blender, add the milk, banana, spinach and mango, in that order. Blend on low speed until the mixture is thick and creamy. You may have to tamp it down to help it blend evenly. Transfer to a bowl and let it set in the freezer while you prepare your toppings.
