Smoothie Bowl Tips

Smoothie bowls are a snap to make, but here are some tips to keep in mind.

  1. Pay attention to your measurements! It’s easy to add a dash of this and a bit of that, before you know it you could have a huge, calorie-laden bowl that might do more harm than good. By measuring your first few smoothie bowls you can rest easy knowing that your bowl is keeping you on track.
  2. Everyone has a different preference for texture. Try using less or more milk to get the right consistency. You might also like your smoothie bowl a little chunkier so you can taste the individual fruits.
  3. To make your smoothie bowl thicker, try using chia seeds, oatmeal, cooked quinoa or even avocado.
  4. Get creative! Once you try a few recipes, feel free to try your own blends that incorporate your favorite plant-based foods for a delicious and nutritious bowl.

Enjoy!!
