Which do you prefer – smoothie bowls or smoothies in a glass with a straw? To be honest, I’ve never had a smoothie bowl until today! I always throw my smoothie in a glass and run out the door without much thought. But today I made a smoothie bowl – and it’s a game changer!
Say hello to my tropical smoothie bowl – mango banana style! This smoothie bowl is incredibly easy to make, so refreshing, tastes delicious, and is so good for you! If you’ve never made a smoothie bowl before, today is the day!
Pros of Smoothie Bowls:
easy and healthy
feels like you’re eating sorbet or ice cream
more satisfying than smoothies (in my opinion!)
great for your digestion
If you haven’t tried a smoothie bowl yet, I encourage you to give this one (or any smoothie bowl) a try! Here’s the details.
1 1/2 cups frozen mango
1 frozen banana
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Blend together your frozen ingredients and almond milk in a high speed blender until smooth and creamy. Add more or less milk depending on how thick you want it.
Top with unlimited toppings and enjoy immediately!
chia, flax or hemp seeds
granola or rolled oats
nut butter of any kind
shredded coconut or dried fruit
freshly slices fresh fruit
vanilla protein powder (optional – for a high protein meal/snack)
I personally found this smoothie bowl more satisfying than drinking a smoothie – maybe it was all the toppings, maybe it was because I was eating it rather than drinking it (there’s actually a psychological effect there, friends!). If you haven’t tried out a smoothie bowl yet, now is your time! The options are endless.
To turn any regular smoothie into a smoothie bowl, simply add less liquid and use frozen ingredients to get a thick and creamy consistency. Add all the toppings and you’re good to go!
