Smoothies have been a staple health food since the 1930s. They have even enjoyed several upgrades with the addition of vitamins and supplements. Now the smoothie has finally evolved. Say hello to the smoothie bowl.
The smoothie bowl has become an internet sensation since exploding on the scene in 2016. This thicker and edible version of the smoothie offers a whole new set of options to spice up the traditional health drink.
The Making of a Smoothie Bowl
If you haven’t tried one of these delicious bowls yet, then you are in for a treat. The main difference between a smoothie and smoothie bowl is the base. The base of a smoothie bowl is thicker and creamier than your traditional smoothie. To accomplish this consistency add a little more frozen fruit or veggies than your traditional smoothie.
After you blend up your base, pour it into a bowl and let the fun begin. The next step is to decorate the top of your creamy mixture with your favorite healthy toppings. You can add items such as granola, chia seeds, and fruit slices. You can also garnish your concoctions with coconut butter and even collagen powder. You are only limited by your imagination and your calorie counter.
Not sure where to start? Try out one of our favorites! Blend one cup of frozen pineapple, one cup of frozen mango, one handful of spinach, 3/4 tsp of Wild Algae blend, and coconut water. Start with a small amount of coconut water and add until you reach your desired consistency. Keep in mind; you want to be able to eat it with a spoon. Once you have reached your desired consistency pour it in a bowl and top with your favorite fruits and nuts.
