7 In Food

For The Bowls

One of my favorite things to do Saturday mornings after working out is to make a smoothie bowl. These tend to get a bad rap because in reality, you are putting a smoothie in a bowl and eating it with a spoon (it’s ‘hipster nonsense’ as my friend Nick likes to call it). However, I like to think of them more as ‘breakfast soups.’ They’re exactly the light snack I need to still give me enough energy to get the day started. Blended much thicker than a regular smoothie, and topped with all the goodies you can think of, they’re really very pretty to look at (and even prettier with an Instagram filter).

I constantly have people asking me how to make them, and I promise you there is no technique or recipe to follow. It’s just a matter of having ingredients to mix things up. My roommate and I have cupboards full of mason jars with chia seeds, hemp seeds, shredded coconut, sunflower seeds, etc. and these are what come in handy when I get the craving for a smoothie bowl. I’ve provided a few different options for inspiration!

Kale, Spinach, Avocado and Banana

 

 

Mixed Berry and Acai

 

Protein, Cookie Butter, Coconut Oil and Cacao

 

What tasty treats do you make when you’re looking for something light after a workout? For my fellow smoothie-bowlers, do you pack on your toppings, or is less more? Thanks for reading!

    Smoothie bowls are great! They are nutritious, flavorful and easy. I really love that once you have an idea of what it is, you can create your own combinations with what you have.

  • Ooh yum! They all look awesome, but the mixed berry one really caught my eye- will definitely give it a try!

  • I have never attempted to make one of these, but I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately! Man are they pretty (delicious looking) 😉 You’ve sold me! I’m definitely going to try one out – I’m thinking the first one 🙂
