Last week was fruit for the morning. How about some fruit for the evening? 😉

I’m almost positive these things have been out for years and I am just late. What is a smoothie bowl, you ask (if you are clueless like I was)? Essentially it is what it sounds like: a bowl filled with a smoothie.
You make a smoothie with the normal ingredients but blend it a bit thicker in a yogurt consistency. Add toppings like granola or leftover fruit and eat with a spoon. 🙂

Sounds easy enough, right? I really like how the site breaks down the nutrients of each layer. Mind Body Green is another great health site that features other smoothie bowl recipes like these:
Don’t these look more filling than a drinkable smoothie? Maybe it’s the artsy girl in me and the colors make it more appealing to eat? I can look forward to having these throughout the day!
Have fun produce shopping this weekend! 😉
