Love smoothies? Then you're going to love this smoothie bowl! It's delicious and packed full of healthy, good for you fruits and veggies to start your day the right way.
What is a smoothie bowl, you say? I'm so glad you asked. Actually, who am I kidding, I'm sure you already have that all figured out. You're cool like that. It's me who's always the last one jumping on the awesome food trends train.
Better late than never.
Will you in-the-know-peeps humor me a minute? Ok, here we go … smoothie bowls are smoothies eaten out of a bowl. Obviously. (said in the most eye-rolling, sarcastic tone ever.) What makes them awesome is all the extras you can put on top. It turns the smoothie into something like a bowl of cereal … now that IS awesome!
I like to make my smoothie bowls extra thick and spoon-worthy.
My fav smoothies have always been green smoothies. I don't know if it's the colour playing some sort of psychological trick on my mind, but I always feel more energized after eating a bowl of green.
You really can't go wrong when you make your own green goddess smoothie bowl. I've given you the recipe I like, but it's super customizable. If there's something you like to add to your morning smoothie, go ahead and add it to your smoothie bowl. The more good stuff you can pack in here the better.
Same goes with the toppings. Raid your pantry and your fruit bowl. Let your imagination take you where it wants. There's no right or wrong here.
The contrast between the smooth smoothie bowl and the crunchy toppings is what I like the best. Nuts, seeds and granola are all kick ass toppings that you should totally try out.
And don't forget about those berries you have in the freezer. Frozen berries on top of smoothie bowls are deelish!
