35 Decadent and Delicious Smoothie Bowl Recipes
Just to be clear, a smoothie bowl is exactly what it sounds like. It is a smoothie base in a bowl that you eat with a spoon instead of drinking it. The advantage to eating your smoothie with a spoon is that you can add all kinds of healthy toppings to give it more texture. This adds a new dimension to the typical creamy smoothie sucked through a straw.
Fruit Based Recipes
There are endless opportunities for making naturally sweet fruit smoothie bowls. You can blend any fresh or frozen fruits. Berries are full of antioxidants needed to fight damaging free radicals that cause disease and premature aging. The Berry Acai Bowl recipe is a perfect example. Fleshy fruits, like bananas, offer a pudding like texture when blended. Using frozen bananas will have a similar feel to ice cream. You may not even need to add a sweetener to a fruit smoothie bowl. Try blending your fruit with water, yogurt, or nut milk.
A green smoothie bowl can be made with most dark leafy greens, cucumbers, celery, avocados, or matcha. Greens have ample amounts of fiber, calcium, and vitamins for keeping your digestive system working optimally and your bones healthy. Avocados are an important source of high quality monounsaturated fatty acids needed for cardiovascular health. The Energizing Green Smoothie Bowl recipe is a nutrition powerhouse. Coconut water or coconut milk make good additions to a blended green smoothie base.
Alternatives to Fruit or Vegetable Bases
Your smoothie bowl base does not have to be all about fruits and veggies. You can just as easily make a base with whipped yogurt or creamy chocolate and lots of toppings. The decadent Super Creamy Chocoholic Smoothie Bowl recipe has a chocolate base with bananas and berries on top.
Nutritious Additions and Toppings
To incorporate some protein into your base, try adding pea or whey powder, hemp or chia seeds, or nut butters. You can also add protein rich nuts and seeds as crunchy elements on top. Other nutritious and textural toppings include cacao nibs, shredded coconut, fresh cut fruit, dried fruits, granola, avocado slices, and sprouts.
