Blueberry Chia Smoothie Bowl

Blueberry Chia Smoothie Bowl

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!

Instructions
  1. Let the frozen mango and blueberries sit in the warm water and unsweetened almond milk for 5 minutes. This will help to soften the fruit for better blending.
  2. Transfer the fruit mixture and greek yogurt into a high powered blender and combine until uniform.
  3. Add chia and flax and pulse a few times until mixed well.
  4. Pour the smoothie into a small-medium sized bowl and let sit for an additional 2-3 minutes to help thicken.
  5. Add toppings and eat right away or cover and place into the fridge for the night. A great quick breakfast option the next day as it keeps well in the fridge for 1-2 days.
Recipe Notes

The longer that your smoothie bowl sits, the thicker it will get as the chia and flax will thicken the liquid. Use a straw to 'drink' the smoothie from the bowl and a spoon to eat up the yummy toppings left at the bottom.
