Smoothie Bowl Magic

A blend of all your favorites, packed with nutrients, cold and refreshing, great on-the-go…can’t imagine life without smoothies! What’s better than a smoothie?! A smoothie in a bowl! A smoothie bowl! It’s a magical thing. Don’t kiss summer goodbye without giving a smoothie bowl a try! photo 3How to make your own smoothie bowl:

The only rule to a smoothie bowl is that there are no rules to a smoothie bowl. The possibilities are endless. The bowl is your canvas. Get creative. Be colorful. Have fun. Customize your crunchiness. Keep nutrition in mind and enjoy! Be sure to include protein, veggies, carbs/fruit, and a healthy fat for a balanced meal. I suggest 1-2 parts leafy greens, 1-2 parts protein, (especially post-workout or breakfast fuel) 1 part fruit/carb, and 1 part healthy fat. Here are some ideas:

  • Spinach/greens (frozen or fresh)
  • Fresh fruit (frozen banana makes a great smoothie base)
  • High quality protein powder of choice
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Coconut shreds
  • Yogurt of choice
  • Oats
  • Rice puffs
  • Avocado
  • Honey, maple syrup, dates, or stevia to sweeten
  • Nut butter
  • Cacao nibs
  • Berries
  • Maca powder
  • Citrus
  • Spirulina
  • Healthy cereal/granola (read ingredients and watch sugar!)
  • Spices (cinnamon, fresh ginger, fresh mint, etc.)
  • Ice
  • Liquid (water, almond milk, coconut water, etc.)

One Healthy Breakdown: it’s a meal and an arts-and-crafts project in one, have fun!
