Smoothie bowls are a great substitute to your morning cereal. If the sound of substituting your breakfast cereal makes you sad you can always sprinkle some cereal on as a topping. Crunchy toppings go well with these bowls! Smoothie bowls are quick and easy to put together especially if you have the ingredients prepared and frozen for immediate use.
How to build a balanced smoothie bowl?
1 cup of greens
1 cup of frozen fruit (if using more than one type, use equal parts e.g. 1/2 + 1/2 cup= 1 cup, or 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 cup).
Tip: Make sure you ripen your fruit on the counter for a few days before you cut, dry, and freeze.
1 tablespoon protein/healthy fats (nut butters, seeds, avocado...)
Superfoods and some (cinnamon, unsweetened shredded coconut, unsweetened cocoa powder, steel cut oats)
Liquid (orange juice, water, milk, almond milk, other milks, coconut water). Add 2-3 tablespoons or 1/2 cup depending on the consistency you prefer. You can always add ice (or greek yogurt) if you added too much liquid and want to thicken it.
