Smoothie bowls are everywhere and I am finally joining the hype 🙂 I have been an avid smoothie drinker for years. I found it is one of the most effective ways to get a dose of your fiber and other wonderful nutrients. Not to mention, it is so easy to whip up and definitely falls under the “fool-proof” breakfast categories. Busy and “no time” to sit and eat a meal? No worries. Blend your fruits and veggies away and you are ready to hit the door with yumminess at hand.
Now that I have more time on my hands, I am actually able to prepare food, sit down, and eat! This led me to give in to making a glorious bowl of deliciousness and I will show you how, too. 🙂
First, you need to gather all that you need:
- Smoothie Base : Pick a Fruit, some greens, and Greek yogurt/ milk / kefir / juice of choice. For my bowl I used almond milk, but feel free to use any other kind you like, 1 ripe avocado, and a handful of spinach.
**I added 1 tsp of pure cane sugar to sweeten my smoothie.**
- Toppings: nuts, seeds, granola, more fruits, additional syrup, shavings, whatever you like! I used strawberries, blueberries, sunflower seeds, almonds, coconut chips (YUM), and CHIA seeds!
- Blend everything that goes into your base. I blend my leafy greens with my liquids first to ensure that they get well blended. No one wants leafy pieces to drink-yuck! I then proceed to add the fruits I want to go for my base. As for this one, I used avocado.
- Transfer if to your bowl
- Decorate however you want with your toppings of choice
- Enjoy! 🙂
Easy peasy yummy goody! Have you guys tried making smoothie bowls? What do you like in yours? 🙂
