3 Easy Smoothie Bowl Recipes


Smoothie bowls are one of those “must try” recipes.  It’s a food trend, kind of like juicing, overnight oats, kale chips, spaghetti squash subbed for pasta, and cauliflower errrything.  Don’t get me wrong, I have dabbled in pretty much all of the aforementioned food trends (minus juicing…I cannot survive a day without chewing something).

Chocolate Raspberry Acai Smoothie Bowl

I make smoothies as a protein boost after a workout, breakfast on-the-go during the week, or as a meal replacement when I’m feeling lazy.  Pretty much any hour or meal of the day can be substituted with a smoothie hehe.  I noticed that although I am always drinking or eating this sweet little treat, I am never blogging about smoothies.  I send texts to girlfriends all the time with smoothie recipe ideas, so why not start sharing the love with all of you too :)  I will add more smoothie recipes to the blog soon, since I am always mixing them up.  I even have a yummy chocolate, peanut butter, banana protein smoothie that will have you reaching for a smoothie instead of a cookie (errr maybe both…I really love cookies).

Blueberry Acai Smoothie Bowl

These are 3 different smoothie bowl recipe ideas.  Seriously take a risk and mix them up, you really can’t go wrong.  You can even add oats, granola, chia seeds, or coconut flakes into the blender to add to the thickness and consistency of your smoothie.  If you have bananas that are going bad, peel, slice, and freeze them for your smoothies too.  Other fun boosts are ginger, cinnamon, orange juice, maca powder, and spirulina.  You can load up on nutrients, fruits, veggies, and fiber without using any silverware or making extra dishes.
