IT’S OFFICIALLY SUMMER GUYS!! Today, I bring you a food post on summer finds and obsessions to hydrate you all through the summer months.
For some of you, you have heard of a smoothie bowl, while for others maybe not. Smoothie bowl is literally as spelled…smoothie-in-a-bowl. It is basically blended fruits and/or vegetables garnished with your favorite toppings i.e. more fruits, granola, sweet and salty snacks. The fascinating thing about this instant energy booster is the vibrant variety of colors that not only soothe your palette but the eyes too. The most fun about this dense plant-based nutrient absorption is the ability to transform your smoothie into several creations like “entrée” and “dessert” options, and it is great for rehydration during the busy and hot summer.
There is no exact formula to making smoothie bowl; all you need is the necessary recipe ingredients i.e. fruits, vegetables, oats, cocoa etc. – wash your smoothie bowl ingredients, blend, and serve, finito! The total preparation time is 5 minutes.
1) Use frozen ingredients and control liquid(s) portion to give a thick consistency like that of ice-cream.
2) Liquids can be replaced as a meal due to the nutrition-rich, anti-oxidant packed, and satisfying amount of calories to fill your stomach nicely, without being over stuffed.
3) Ensure to use a great blender with ice, pulse or smoothie buttons, or options. This optional selection totally transforms the look of your smoothie and gives a very creamy texture.
I follow a great number of health enthusiast and die-hard nutrition folks who are extremely smoothie and green juice drinkers. Warning! It is totally addictive, and irresistible once you join the smoothie bowl club. There are so many yummy takes to try, and would find yourself drooling like I normally do daily when on their Instagram pages. Here are few of them below;
