Favorite Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie bowls are trending – and we have been making them A LOT at home. As it turns out achieving perfect smoothie bowl consistency is harder than I thought. The secret is avoiding the temptation to use too much liquid – just enough to prevent the blender from getting stuck. Another key component is your blender — a high speed option like the classic Vitamix or this amazingly powerful (and affordable) blender/smoothie bowl maker from Ninja is what you need to easily get the job done.

Chocolate Peanut Butter – yes, please!

Welcome to smoothie bowl heaven – this creamy whip of banana, chocolate whey, peanut butter and oats packs in over 30 grams of protein for post workout recovery or a pre-sleep amino acid boost. Choose nutrient-dense toppers for texture and some extra antioxidants. I use NOW Sports whey protein but you can swap for a plant-based protein as well.

Always Acai Bowls

My kids are just as obsessed as my students at Quinnipiac. Acai bowls adorned with all kinds of toppings is a delightfully refreshing breakfast or snack. This once mysterious rainforest berry can now be found in your local grocery store. Acai boasts potassium for muscles, fiber for gut health, as well as powerful antioxidants to protect cells and fight inflammation. The best part – freezer packs of frozen purees makes it extra convenient to add to smoothie bowls. The secret to the perfect acai bowl is the right combo of fruit to liquid – plus a little yogurt for the smoothest consistency.
