I must admit that I didn’t really ‘get’ smoothie bowls when they first started popping up on my social media feeds. Sure, they were gorgeous hues of green, pink and purple with tasty toppings, but isn’t it just a smoothie, in a bowl?
And how do you eat it? With a spoon?
Why not make a smoothie in a cup like normal?
Here is what I’ve learned:
Smoothie bowls are awesome because you get the smoothie and the yummy (and nutrient packed) toppings. They are fun to eat and keep really well in the fridge if you want to prepare them the night before.
I’ve been eating my smoothie bowls as post-workout meals. This means I prep them the night before while I’m making my daughter’s lunch for daycare, stick it in the fridge and forget about it until the next day. Before I dive into my work for the day, I get a quick sweaty workout in and then eat my smoothie bowl while I answer emails or do some prep for my daily projects.
I eat it with a straw (woohoo, hands free), and then finish up the smoothie-covered toppings with a spoon once I get to the bottom of the bowl. And hey, they look really pretty which is fun too!
