In my attempt to go back to healthy eating I figured it was time to share a smoothie bowl. It is essentially a smoothie but in a bowl with toppings. The fun part is the variety of toppings you can put on here. I just used some basic ones but I will give you some other ideas at the end. You can get so creative with this recipe by switching the fruits out for your favorites, make it kid friendly by letting them choose and add their toppings.
The key to making good smoothies is firstly, using frozen fruits versus adding ice to the blender. When you add ice you are adding extra liquid that will water down the smoothie so my tip is to use frozen fruits. The next obvious thing is to have a good blender that can work with the frozen fruits.
Frozen Strawberries – 1 Cup
Frozen Banana – 1
Honey/ Maple syrup/ Agave syrup – 1 Teaspoon or to taste
Milk/ Almond milk/ Soy milk – 3/4 Cup
Add all these items and blend well. You may need to stop and use a spoon in between to push the fruits down in between. Add more liquid if you find it too thick, a splash at a time. Then pour into a bowl and top with your favorite toppings.
Ideas for smoothie toppings:

Carob/dark chocolate chips

The toppings are pretty forgiving and adds some texture to the bowl. Serve this cold and as soon as possible. I generally do not use much sweetner in my smoothies just because I find the bananas tend to have enough sugar but since the strawberries can be tart, I suggest adding some extra natural sweetener. This works well as dessert too, won’t tell you how I know!
