Pin this delicious super healthy smoothie bowl recipe to get you going and keep you full all morning long.
When I was pregnant with Sydney, I HATED meat. I wasn’t familiar with a vegetarian diet, black bean burritos eventually became my friend, so I was eating a lot of white food – fettuccini alfredo, pizza, rice, and potatoes smothered in ranch dressing lol. I had no idea how to work iron into my diet, so it was no surprise when my hemoglobin levels were low at one of my checkups.
My doctor suggested working a lot of greens into my diet, so I ran off to my local smoothie shop to try out my very first green smoothie. I thought it would be an acquired taste, so I reluctantly took a sip and was shocked that it tasted like the fruit rather than the greens. I’d always looked the other way when I saw someone sucking down a green drink, but little did I know that I was the one missing out.
Ever since, I have been hooked on smoothies, and love making them in the mornings. The problem is, since everything is blended, I find myself getting hungry again shortly after. Enter the popular smoothie bowl recipe trend to the rescue for my morning cravings. Pour your favorite blended smoothie into a bowl and then top with your favorite super foods including coconut, chia seeds, almond slices and more. It gives the smoothie great color and texture, and keeps you satisfied far longer.
My son loves a little smoothie in his monster cup with the curly straw, and I can even spoon feed a little to the baby, but the super charged smoothie bowl is all mine.
