If you haven’t heard, smoothie bowls are a growing trend due to their bright colors and nutritious benefits. A smoothie bowl is exactly what it sounds like, a smoothie in a bowl! The difference between a smoothie bowl and your average smoothie in a glass is that they tend to be a bit thicker and people like to add toppings such as fruits, nuts, and granola to them. You can have them for any meal or even a post-workout snack and they usually include greens, fruits, protein, and a healthy fat.
Here are three different smoothie bowl recipes you should try!
