Y’all, I finally made a smoothie bowl! Finally. After seeing them all over my Instagram feed. With their bright fun colors, and their frozen fruits. I kept saying, every single time that I would see one, I’m gonna make this. Well, after months and months, I did finally create one, and had to share.
Smoothie bowls are literally just smoothies poured into a bowl and topped with fruit, seeds, granola, nuts, etc. It’s just a smoothie sitting in a bowl, looking pretty.
Funny thing too, it’s far more filling than a smoothie made that’s poured into a glass that you sip with a straw. What? Yea, I know. I think it’s a brain thing. You know, you’re eating something with a spoon, as opposed to just drinking something. It’s gotta be a brain thing…it’s the same thing!
The only difference, and I do mean the only difference is that I toss this guy back in the freezer for ten minutes, after I pour it up. This is ONLY so that the stuff I place on top doesn’t sink down immediately.
I topped this Green Apple Smoothie bowl with slices of banana and apples, with a dash of chia seeds. But you can top it with whatever that floats your boat! Got granola? Top it! This Apple Pie Granola would be a great topping.
I’ve been mixing up smoothies and smoothie bowls since the first of January. They make a great breakfast, lunch, or quick snack. If I’m starving more than normal. I make a smoothie bowl, because like I said above, for some strange reason, they are more filling. (I’m telling you, it’s a brain thing!)
What is the best blender for smoothie bowls?
I’ve used several cheap versions, and have found that hands down every time, the best bang for your buck is the one I have in my kitchen now, this Ninja blender/food processor. It’s less than $35, and it will turn ice cubes into snow. <— the kind you can make snow balls with.
