Ever had a smoothie bowl?? Clearly there is no difference it being in a cup, but the thought of it in a bowl is kinda  interesting. I got this idea from the foodies on Instagram. Playing with food in a colorful way is currently my new hobby.

Smoothie bowls are thick fruit or vegetable drinks with different toppings in a bowl. With the right ingredients, they are supposed to be healthy drinks that you can feel good and slurp about it. Great for a breakfast meal, you can totally supplement it with coffee or bread.

Here are the key components of a smoothie bowl:

Vegetables: Kale, spinach, cucumber, celery, pumpkin, carrots, beets and other favorites are all great in smoothie bowls.
Fruits: Frozen fruits work the best. Fresh fruits will work, too, but you just need to add ice cubes for thickness and temperature.
Proteins: Protein powder (can be plant-based ), yogurt, chia, sesame seeds or hemp seeds, and nut butters.
Healthy fats: Add avocado, nuts, seeds or coconut oil.
Liquid: Choose water, milk (dairy or non-dairy) or coconut water. Start with a little and gradually add a small amount at a time to ensure you achieve your desired consistency.
Toppings: Granola, unsweetened coconut, fresh fruit, seeds and nuts are tasty toppings. Avoid added sugars as much as possible.
