Are smoothie bowls good for you?
Well, they make a healthy breakfast and even a healthier dessert. Not to mention that adding some protein powder or high-protein ingredients, like peanut butter to your smoothie bowl, will transform it into a protein powerhouse.
5 questions about smoothie bowls answered
- What is a smoothie bowl?
A smoothie bowl starts with a thick blended mix made of fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables and other healthy ingredients like oats, milk, yogurt, protein powder, avocados, spinach, kale.
- Are smoothie bowls healthy?
Smoothies present an excellent opportunity to eat more fruits and vegetables. They can also be a great source of fiber, protein, and vitamins that contribute to your health.
- What can I top my smoothie bowl with?
Try other fresh or frozen fruits (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, mango, bananas), nuts (coconut flakes, almond flakes or whole, walnuts, cajun); seeds (pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, milled flaxseeds); nut butter (peanut, almond, cajun); granola.
- How to thicken a smoothie bowl?
Use more frozen fruits or freeze them overnight.
Add yogurt instead of other liquids and you’ll obtain a creamy, thick smoothie (this is how I prefer to thicken it).
Use minimum liquid and more fruits.
Add oats, chia seeds, or protein powder.
- What’s the difference between smoothies and smoothie bowls?
Smoothies are more liquid and you can gulp them down in seconds, whilst smoothie bowls are more complex. They’re thicker and feel more like a real meal that requires a spoon to eat, not a straw.
