5 Days of Smoothie Bowls

Fact(ish): Smoothies are delicious.

I have a couple “go-to” breakfasts during the work week just so I can avoid having to think about what I am going to make. I always want something quick, satisfying, and healthy that will set the healthy eating tone for the day. While I can’t promise that I won’t eat that donut or cookie a co-worker brings in later on, at least I can try to start the day off right, right?

Smoothie bowls have recently been added to my breakfast list! They are refreshing and full of vitamins and nutrients, and the possibilities of what you can create are endless!

Question: But why not just a smoothie? Why do you have to put it in a bowl?

Answer: Using a straw makes it a drink; using a spoon makes it meal. I know there is little logic to that, but eating has become very much of a mind game for many, including myself. Despite both options being the same amount of food and therefore the same amount of calories, there is something about pouring the mixture into a bowl, topping it off with fruit and/or granola and eating it like a yogurt parfait or cereal. It’s just overall better!

Below is one work-week’s worth of smoothie bowl recipes!

You can follow these recipes exactly or mix it up and play with different combinations! My only helpful tip would be to use some kind of combination of greek yogurt, almond milk, and banana (frozen if you can manage) to maintain a smoothie-like consistency. Comment below with any ingredients or combination of ingredients you might suggest! I’m always looking for new recipes!

ENJOY!
