3 Healthy Green Smoothie Bowl Recipes

0 Comments

Ahhhh, just reminiscing  about our #21DayGreenUp Smoothie Challenge. We all had an amazing time blending together!

 

 

 

 

 

This time our menu included the Instagram stars, smoothie bowls!

The ingredient possibilities are endless, they’re simple to make, and you’re able to pack in a ton of nutrients in one bowl. Your mornings will be changed forever!

When I first started making smoothie bowls, I have to be honest, I had drippy messes! So here are a few tricks I learned to make frosty, creamy ones instead of smoothie soup:

Tip #1: Make your bowls thick.   Start with less liquid than you normally would for a drinkable smoothie, and/or you can also add some extra base ingredients like frozen fruit to the blender. I usually do the frozen fruit trick because it makes the smoothie sweet as well as super thick and creamy. You can always add more liquid as you blend so start with less.

Tip #2:  Chill your bowl. Pop your bowl into the freezer either before getting started or while you prep ingredients and blend your smoothie. It makes a world of difference! Melting can happen quickly so a chilled bowl can keep things frosty longer.

Tip #3:  Layer it on! What really makes smoothie bowls different are the toppings. Compared to a glass, the extra surface area of the bowl lets you bring texture and crunch in the form of nuts, seeds,  coconut flakes, granola, and fresh fruit.

Now are you ready to whip  up some bowls?!

Here are our favorite smoothie bowl recipes from #21DayGreenUp:
