Green Smoothie Bowl
I have been seeing smoothie bowls all over the internet. They are always so beautiful. It inspired me to make my own. The thing about smoothie bowls is that they are so versatile. Smoothie bowls can be made with any type of smoothie that you want.

The topping choices are endless: coconut, granola, chia seeds, pineapple, kiwi, peanut butter, almonds, berries, banana, apricots, peaches, cereal, etc. etc. The list goes on and on.

This was my first smoothie bowl and let me tell you, I am hooked! I enjoyed this cold bowl on a hot day and it was nothing short of perfection. The tip that I will tell you for making your own smoothie bowl is that you much make a very thick smoothie, otherwise, the toppings will fall right to the bottom- trust me, it happened to me.

I loved the variety of flavors and textures in this smoothie. What I have come to realize over the years is that my favorite fruit in a smoothie is definitely banana. I love the flavor of a ripe banana and it allows you to use less sweetness than you may want otherwise. As you can see in the pictures, I made a couple of different smoothie bowls- the first one was not thick enough to hold the ingredients up but was still extremely delicious!

Also, I have a hard time making a smoothie that is not a green smoothie. If I make a non-green smoothie for the blog, after I photograph it, I often throw it back in the blender with some spinach or kale. I just can't miss that chance for a boost of nutrition I guess.

Green Smoothie Bowl
My smoothie included Purely Inspired protein which I love! It is a 100% plant based protein nutritional shake which worked well in this recipe to give a boost of protein and nutrients. It is dairy, gluten and soy free. One serving has 16 grams protein and 7 grams of fiber. It contains a concentrated greens blend with broccoli and spinach. It is a blend of proteins including pea protein, brown rice protein and alfalfa juice protein concentrate.
