Sweet and satisfying smoothie bowls are packed with nutritious ingredients like spinach, blueberries, and unsweetened yogurt.
Look. Sometimes even the best of us can feel grumpy in the morning. But for those blah mornings, a vibrant, refreshing, and nourishing smoothie bowl can be the ultimate pick-me-up!
Why I Love Smoothie Bowls
Most mornings I’ll just blend up a smoothie and drink in with a straw. But sometimes I just want a little texture. And to eat breakfast from a bowl!
That’s how this smoothie bowl was born. It’s made with blueberries, bananas, yogurt, coconut milk and honey. Topped with some spinach, sliced bananas, and blueberries. I am so glad I did this because I didn’t feel like I needed to grab some toast or another filler food just so I could have the texture I enjoy plus it was differently satisfying.
A bonus for this amazing smoothie bowl is that it was filled with lots of nutrients and antioxidants from the blueberries and other ingredients. One of my new go to breakfast meals is now this Blueberry Coconut Milk Smoothie because I know it will give me the extra boost to get through my day.
You might think I’m silly for saying how much I loved this bowl of heaven this morning, but really, what’s not to love about a bowl full of fruit that was blended into a smoothie bowl and topped with goodness. I felt like I was eating dessert for breakfast. Yum!
You can have a lot of fun with toppings and other variations in your Smoothie Bowl. It is a perfect way to use up your left over fruit! Blend it all together then top it off with fun toppings like nuts, seeds, granola or low sugar trail mix that you know your kids will love.
I’m all about adding toppings… just like an ice-cream sundae! You can never have too many toppings, right?
Blended a little thinner and this smoothie bowl is also great as a standard straw sipping variety but I hope you try it as a smoothie bowl with delicious toppings added by the spoonful. Tell us what you like in your smoothie bowls.
