A smoothie bowl is very similar to a smoothie, but served in a bowl and is a lot thicker. You can add lots of different toppings to make it more like a meal. I really like to add some crunch, to complement the texture of the smoothie. Another lovely addition is some high quality home-made or store-bought granola which really compliments the dish. When choosing your ingredients, make sure you're including some form of protein, healthy fats and vegetables to keep you sustained, and ensuring it's not just fruit based which will spike your blood sugar levels.

Instructions
  1. To make the smoothie bowl, blend all the smoothie ingredients in a high speed blender or Nutri-bullet until smooth - it should be quite a thick texture.
