Social media, blogs and healthy food magazines are a buzz over smoothie bowls, and specifically the green smoothie bowl.
But are they as good as everyone is making them out to be? The answer is....they are perfect!
A smoothie bowl is basically the best chilled soup ever. If you like Acai bowls from fancy juiceries then a smoothie bowl is a fantastic way for you to make an Acai bowl but for a fraction of the cost. Now I know that in the freezer section of most grocery stores there are pre-made Acai smoothie packets but I opted for a homemade green smoothie.
The green smoothie bowl is a great way to start your day being high in antioxidants, fiber and depending on what you put on top, can have a nice kick of protein to it. Sometimes these bowls can be too high in sugar content pre packaged in places such as Starbucks. Some as high as 130 grams of sugar per bowl. So trade out the fruit purees and sugary yogurts for some unsweetened almond milk or plain greek yogurt. Also reach for some almonds as a sugar free protein topping and toast them for more flavor!
