How to Make a Superfood Smoothie Bowl + 6 Recipes

Menthol Chest Balm Recipe

Sure, we’ve all heard of smoothies. But have you heard of the new trend smoothie bowls? There’s really nothin’ to it, it’s basically what it sounds like it is—a smoothie in a bowl—although, I’ve come to learn there are two distinct differences between the classic smoothie and the modern smoothie bowl. The smoothie bowl is typically a thicker consistency, and the smoothie bowl has a variety of fun toppings, such as strawberries, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and banana slices (more ideas below).

As I mentioned, having a thick consistency is key when making your smoothie bowl. This is achieved by using frozen ingredients, typically frozen bananas and/or berries, and blending at a low speed. A thick smoothie bowl is a delicious, nutrient-rich breakfast or snack that you can make in a few minutes, so it’s perfect for those times when you need something in a hurry. The options of ingredients and toppings are endless.

The name of the game when it comes to smoothie bowls is experimentation. What herbs, fruits or veggies have you been wanting to consume more? Inject them into your smoothie bowls! The recipes below serve more as a starting point, so go with your gut! Without belaboring much more on what a smoothie bowl is, let’s just get right into some recipes. Comment below with your favorite smoothie bowl recipes.
