If you are on Instagram, you have surely seen millions of perfectly staged pictures of smoothie bowls. Never once did the thought of pouring my smoothie into a cereal bowl and eating it with a spoon appeal to me. Just drink it like a normal person! But finally I realized a few good things about the bowl concept. First, you can arguably make a lot more of the smoothie–never a bad thing in my book. You can also put lots of crunchy, delicious toppings on it, making it feel like more of a meal than just a drink on the go. This morning I decided to take the leap. I made one of my favorite smoothie combos slightly thicker than usual and loaded on the toppings. The result? Absolutely delicious. I’m a believer.
Creamy Green Smoothie Bowl
-1 c kale (or spinach)
-spoonful of peanut butter
-squeeze of honey
-1/2 c to 1 c almond milk
-toppings: shredded coconut, crushed plantain chips, toasted almonds (or anything you like)
Blend everything but the toppings and pour it in a bowl. Place the toppings on–arranged in lines, obviously for Insta. 😉
