I realized as I was making this smoothie bowl for breakfast that I have never blogged this recipe! How did that happen? What a shame. I guess when I make a simple recipe over and over I forget that it is great and needs to be shared. Smoothie bowls have been around for a long time and they are a fun twist on the traditional smoothie in a glass. Full of fiber, nutrients, and flavor – these bowls are good for the body and the taste buds! Plus they are beautiful to look at. Smoothie bowls are super simple to make. I always use whatever fruit and greens I have on hand and then add my favorite toppings. You can be as simple or elaborate as your creative mind wants to take this bowl…a breakfast bowl work of art!
Smoothie Bowl Ingredients:
2 cups frozen fruit of choice (such as blueberries, strawberries, cherries, etc.)
1-2 cups greens of choice (such as spinach, kale, collards, etc.)
2-3 Medjool dates, pitted
1-2 cups plant-based milk of choice*
dash of vanilla
dash of cinnamon, cardamom, sea salt
nuts and seeds
whatever you like!
Place all smoothie ingredients in a high-powered blender. *Add enough milk to move the ingredients – you want it a bit thicker than a regular smoothie. Think thick smoothie “soup” instead of a drink. Pour smoothie into a bowl and decorate with your toppings of choice. Enjoy!
