Smoothie bowls are all the rage right now. Anyone who has been eating healthy for awhile, knows that smoothie bowls aren't a new idea. A friend recently told me that on The Today Show they had a segment on smoothie bowls as if they were a new idea. So today I am bringing you a whole lot of recent smoothie bowl pictures. I've been on a kick, eating them daily for lunch. Just like a salad, there are so many different options and things to add to make a different one each day.
Here is how I construct a smoothie bowl:
A cool bowl and spoon. I love my favorite bamboo wood bowl and spoon from The Raw Food World. (Please use my affiliate link or the link on my side bar. For some reason links aren't working right now. So here you go: http://www.therawfoodworld.com/?aff=43318)
Frozen bananas. I keep a big Pyrex container filled with them in my freezer. I replenish it weekly.
Frozen or fresh fruit. I love frozen cherries for mine. I buy a big bag of organic ones from Costco. They have a variety of organic frozen fruit.
Cereal of some type. I like using Living Intentions sprouted/ raw granola. I buy it in the bull section from Whole Foods. You can use granola or cereal if you'd like.
Dried fruit. I use whatever I have on hand.. Usually dried mulberries, golden raisins, regular raisins, dates. There are some great options out there for pure (unsulphured) dried fruit. Trader Joes and The Raw Food World are my go to for this.
Something to drizzle. I like using stone ground nut butters from Dastony. I also love using Philosophie brand coconut butters. They have a ton of flavor and they crumble well, reminds me a lot of cookie dough or frosting. Peanut butter, Brazil nut butter, black strap molasses, maple syrup, coconut syrup are all great options as well.
Some other great add ins: shredded coconut, nuts or seeds, protein powder (I like Sunwarrior), green powder (I love Barely Grass Juice Powder), herbs, Chinese mushrooms like reishi or chaga, chlorella, spirulina, turmeric, vitamin drops, lettuce, kale, spinach. All of these have been known to make it into my bowl at times.
Another idea: make flavored tea and let it cool down. Use the tea as the water for the smoothie. I like using autumn spice tea right now. I also use nettle tea for the health benefits. You can also use coconut water or nut milk. You will also notice I make chia and oatmeal bowls. Not exactly smoothie bowls, but with the same idea.
