Here’s a confession. This is the second every smoothie bowl I’ve EVER made. GASP! My first being this chai Turmeric chia smoothie bowl. Which oddly, looks like soup. Either way, we’re kind smoothie bowl newbies, but that’s totally about to change.
You see, for years we’ve had breakfast ON THE GO or a QUICK smoothie after a hard training session, post workout, etc. There was NO time to eat a smoothie from a bowl. NO, nada. We ain’t got no time for spoons. Haha. We just needed calories and nourishment and free hands to keep us multitasking or driving. Ugh, that sounds so busy body, but it’s the truth. No time no time no time. And you know what? I don’t like that. WE don’t like that. Eating so hurried can be hard on digestion. Not that there is anything wrong with sipping a smoothie, it’s the SLURPING it in a hurry that doesn’t help.
Can you relate? Maybe you get a little indigestion or stomach ache after gulping down a smoothie. That’s probably all due to the way you ate it. Fast and furious! Been there, guilty.
So this got me thinking. Maybe this smoothie bowl trend is going to force us to slow down. Maybe it will allow us to sit and savor the flavor, resulting in more nutrients being absorbed. A little rest and digest while we spoon… spoon the smoothie that is. 😉
That being said, I’m going to fully support the year of the bowl! Smoothie bowl, power bowls, noodle bowls, breakfast bowls, SUPER bowls (not to being confused with the super bowl, but an actual bowl of super duper goodness).
Get my point? Bowls are where it’s at for health! And maybe our society needs to um… Spoon up! I know, I’m punny.
So how do you make a smoothie bowl that you can actually eat with a spoon? Well, that was a tough one for me. I had to play around with a lot of different mixtures and thicknesses, but I think finally found a pretty cool way to bulk up our smoothie bowl recipes.
Replace those ice cubes with a blend of frozen food and liquid. Or in this case, I took frozen peanut butter and coconut oil and froze it into cubes. –> which makes it thick and creamy.
Then I blended it together with SUPERFOOD berries! —> This makes it tart give it a little more bulk!
Then you need to smooth it out with a little natural gel or thickening agent. Hence the chia seed and a bit of Better Body Foods SuperFOOD protein!!!
Now you have one SPOON-TASTIC Frozen Peanut Butter SuperFood Smoothie Bowl!
