Smoothie Bowls

Author: The Resource Girls

I’ve been seeing smoothie bowls everywhere. I love a morning smoothie and have actually shared my own recipe over on our blog. I think the biggest draw to smoothie bowls is that they kind of trick you into thinking you’re eating a bowl of cereal or simply eating a filling meal. I’ve heard quite a few people say they don’t love drinking something for their meal. I’ve always been one who enjoys being able to just sip down a smoothie for breakfast when I’m on the go and never thought twice about it. That is, until I started seeing these bowls pop up everywhere.  If you are not one of those people who want to drink their meal, this is for you.

I’ve found I really enjoy a power bowl on the weekends. On Saturday mornings, I usually try to enjoy some down time and slowly sip my coffee over a yummy breakfast. A smoothie bowl makes the perfect addition to this relaxing time. They are also super easy to make in advance. You can make several of these at one time. Cut up all your fruit and place your toppings into a couple ziploc baggies. Place your smoothie bases into some Tupperware and they’re ready to grab and go during the workweek.

These suckers are amazing to mix up with just about anything. We didn’t have kiwi on hand, but if we had we would have sliced those bad boys up for the top. Did you know kiwis have five times more vitamin C than an orange in each serving? They also contain almost twenty vital nutrients. If you’re in a time crunch an acai berry frozen pack is another amazing option. In your actual smoothie recipe you can throw in oats, flaxseed or some almond butter to change it up a bit and add an extra healthy punch. Don’t want a smoothie base? You could try a base of chia pudding! Haven’t heard of it?  Read our posts here for the recipe.

Whatever it is that you love, add it in. There’s so many ways you can make it your own. Now, toss those straws to the side, pick up a spoon and fuel your body for the day!
