Super Power Smoothie Bowl

Super Power Smoothie Bowl | happyfitmama.com

I love smoothies. But the problem is that I usually drink it in 5 minutes and then am searching for something else soon after. I need to work my chompers. I need the chew.

Enter the smoothie bowl.

Over the years, I’ve been randomly making smoothie bowls. But when we were in Hawaii, I fell in love with Acai bowls. SO good! I knew I had to try to recreate it once we got home. With the endless winter that soon followed, a cold smoothie was the last thing that I wanted.

But once the weather started warming up, I got back into it. Around the same time, my daughter decided that she didn’t really like smoothies anymore. All that changed once she saw what went into a smoothie bowl.

She’s just like her mama – it’s all about the toppings!

A smoothie bowl is simply a smoothie served in a bowl and topped with granola, nuts, coconut, chocolate chips, fresh fruit — whatever your heart desires!

Dream big, people – the options are endless.

This recipe calls for simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand. You can really make this with any fruit and any topping. It’s also a great way to sneak fresh spinach or kale into your daily eats if you so desire.

Full of superfoods and healthy fats, this bowl of goodness will keep you satisfied for hours.

  1. You know, I have never actually tried a smoothie bowl, but I think it is about time as its such a good idea, and removes my reason that I do not like a lot of smoothies; no crunch! This sounds wonderful, and oh so delicious! Thanks for linking up with us Angela, I was SO happy to see your name on there :)

    1. Smoothies and smoothie bowls can definitely be calorie bombs. The toppings are a sprinkle rather than a serving size. I’m guessing maybe 1 tsp or so? As for the calories? Maybe 300-500 – it’s definitely a meal. More if you go crazy with the toppings.
