Why are smoothie bowls such a thing?! Why am I still posting them?
I keep making them…because the boys keep asking for them. And because they are different. And because they are so healthful. And because there is no added sugar. And because they make a sweet treat, delicious breakfast, and filling after school snack.
Now, for the keys to success with smoothie bowls…
Tips for Enjoying Smoothie Bowls
- Use really ripe bananas to increase the natural sweetness. Bonus points: break ripe bananas into smaller chunks and freeze them.
- Use mostly, if not all, frozen fruit. This will help make the smoothie thicker and more ice cream-like.
- Be prepared with the topping ingredients to assemble quickly.
- If your store has the bulk food bins, look for toppings like chia, slivered almonds, granola, etc. and only get how much you need. A few pinchfuls of each will only cost ya $.10-$.50!
- Use GF granola or other crunchy GF toppings for GF option.
- Eat right away!
