I’ve been a smoothie bowl girl long before the cult of artfully stripped pink bowls appeared all over social media. There are now even acai bowls on the menu at Costco. That is when you know it is mainstream. I would 10/10 choose eating my food with a spoon over a straw. Milkshakes, broths, smoothies– all belong in a bowl, in my opinion.

 

Regardless of the vessel of choice, smoothies are a classic way to incorporate an incredible amount of nutrients into one refreshing and satisfying meal. Since there truly are infinite ways to make your own smoothie bowl, I have outlined a formula for pairing some the most nutrient dense foods to craft your own bowl (or cup, I won’t judge).
