There’s no denying that smoothies are delicious, easy to make, and open to endless possibilities of ingredients. One of my favorite parts of smoothie making is finding the perfect toppings; the only problem is you’re usually working with a small glass, leaving little room for all the goods. The solution? A smoothie bowl!
If you browse Instagram from time to time, you’ve probably seen beautiful images of colorful and decorative smoothie bowls (aka smoothies in a bowl). They’re pretty much all the rage right now, as they allow smoothie enthusiasts to not only expand their line of toppings, but turn their food into a work of art.
The trick to a good smoothie bowl is getting it thick, creamy, and (hopefully) tasty. Here’s a recipe that’s super simple to make, extremely filling, and is easy on the eyes if I do say so myself.
- 8 oz of unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup frozen cauliflower
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup Siggi’s plain yogurt
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used 365 Whey Protein)
- 2 tbsp. almond butter (I used Trader Joe’s unsalted raw, creamy)
- 1 tbsp. flaxseed (I use Bob’s Mill Flaxseed)
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 tbsp. coconut butter
- Chia seeds
- Cacao nibs
- Purely Elizabeth Coconut Cashew grain-free granola
- Coconut flakes
- Blend all ingredients together until thick and creamy. Color should turn out a bright purple! Pour smoothie into a large bowl and add toppings throughout the frame of the bowl. Add as many to your liking!
