4 Healthy Smoothie Bowl Recipes

Most people have heard of the smoothie bowl by now. It’s a pretty simple concept and the recipes are simple to make. The ingredients are endless; yogurts with berries, grapes, apples, pears, all kinds of greens from collards to spinach, which most people love because it has a milder taste than some other greens like kale, which is also great for a smoothie bowl. A smoothie bowl is just another way to have a smoothie for a meal. It’s often a bit thicker and of course, served in a bowl. Cereals can be added on top for a bit of crunch and texture to this smooth and creamy meal.

To make your smoothie bowl, all you need to do is use the same ingredients you love in your regular smoothies and simply add more yogurt, peanut butter, or any other richer ingredients for taste and thickness. And instead of a using a straw, you eat it with a spoon and that makes some people feel more satisfied and makes the smoothie feel more like a full meal. The smoothie bowl has become so popular because as long as you have certain ingredients like yogurt and nut milks or soy milk, you can add all different sorts of ingredients to it, and come up with a delicious meal, usually breakfast or lunch.
