Smoothie Bowls

October 24, 2017

One of the best things about travelling is discovering new foods. In my recent travels (to the Hawaii Islands), I discovered acai bowls, fruit bowls, smoothie bowls - whatever you want to call them. I found these so tasty and refreshing, I'd thought I'd look up a few recipes for when I get home. They we're sooo good and full of nutrients that I just had to share with you.

 

They are filled with "super foods" (aka fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, etc.) and very easy to prepare. They make for a great snack and they will no doubt fill you up til your next meal. I did modify these recipes to add more protein (adding protein powder or plain Greek yogurt). Don't be afraid to get creative with these. You can modify or alter some ingredients if you wish. For example, if you don't prefer almonds, you can use some pecans or macadamias, etc.
