Smoothie bowls are all the rage! They are simple to make, fun to eat, and healthy. In this Green Apple Smoothie Bowl you can’t taste the greens which means it’s kid pleasing!
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!)
Have you made a smoothie bowl before? What’s your favorite smoothie concoction?
- 1 banana, peeled and frozen
- 1/2 apple, sliced
- 1 orange, peeled and chopped
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 cup milk, or liquid of choice
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- 1/2 apple, sliced
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- Mix together all of the ingredients for the smoothie bowl in a high powered blender. Blend/pulse for a couple of minutes until there are no longer any lumps, and you've got a smoothie consistency. Pour it into a large bowl, toss in the freezer ten minutes. Remove from the freezer and top with the suggested toppings, or any that you'd like.
