So, I have to admit…when I first heard of smoothie bowls, I was a big skeptic.
I had a very hard time understanding why on EARTH would someone pour a smoothie into a bowl and then eat it with a spoon.
It just seemed so dang weird.
I mean…a spoon??
Then, I finally tried one for myself.
And another one.
And, well, another one.
Then, I made this one <— yum
And I kinda fell in love with smoothie bowls.
Now that I’ve got a good year or so of smoothie bowl “research” under my belt, let’s discuss why we should ALL be on the spoon-eating smoothie bowl train.
- SUPER easy to make
- Can add all sorts of fun toppings to customize
- So pretty!
- Add texture to your smoothie
- Smoothies and shakes never get boring – woot!
- The perfect use for those chia seeds and pepitas sitting in your pantry
- Clean eating goodness
Seriously: Smoothie bowls are pretty darn awesome and I’m so glad I finally went for it and tried my smoothie with a spoon!
If you haven’t tried them for yourself, I totally think you should. 🙂
Try this banana blueberry smoothie bowl for starters or my strawberry and peach smoothie bowl or any of my protein shakes and add whatever flavors and toppings you like to the top.
