Smoothie Bowl

A smoothie bowl is a thicker smoothie, served in a bowl and eaten by the spoonful. They often include healthy additions of greens, yogurt or milk (dairy or non-dairy), a superfood or two, frozen or fresh fruit, protein powder, seeds such as hemp or chia, and nuts or nut butters. The healthy fats in this smoothie come from avocado, flax seeds and peanut butter.
