Smoothie Bowls: The Latest Breakfast Trend

Posted by , April 13th, 2016

By Nina Rizzo

If you follow the foodie world, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the pages of most culinary bloggers are suddenly  filled with beautiful images of symmetrically placed fruit and veggies ensconced in large round bowls, accompanied by spoons, not straws.  What is this trendy new concoction and why is it so popular? It’s called a Smoothie Bowl – and it may be the most perfect breakfast meal ever created.

Smoothie Vs. Smoothie Bowl – What’s the Difference?

Build a Better Breakfast Part 3: Muesli Greek Yogurt Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie Bowls aren’t meant to be gulped down in seconds like a regular smoothie – which traditionally is made of pureed fruits and yogurt. But rather, a smoothie bowl is meant to feel like a real meal with layers of flavor, texture and color. Plus, you enjoy it with a spoon, not a straw.

Owing to their thick texture, smoothie bowls are designed for toppings, as their dense consistency holds up to hearty ingredients like nuts and granola, which add crunch and texture while providing sustained energy, healthy fats, and protein to keep you full throughout the day.

The best bowls mix plant-based fats with low glycemic fruits and nutrient-rich green vegetables. Foods like avocado, nuts, hemp and chia seeds add thickness and creaminess to your bowl’s base while providing healthy fats and anti-inflammatory omega-3’s to keep you filled up and fueled until lunchtime. Low glycemic fruits like berries, cherries, apricots, apples and pears offer fruity flavor and beneficial nutrients while promoting stable blood sugar levels.

Due to their overall consistency and healthy ingredients, smoothie bowls make them a great choice for die-hard cereal eaters who are looking to transition into healthier breakfast habits.

How Do You Make A Smoothie Bowl?

To get started, add fresh or frozen fruit into a high-power blender. Throw in some nutrient-dense greens, such as spinach or kale, and thicken with plain Greek yogurt or healthy fats like almond butter, coconut oil, flax seed or avocado to create a thick, rich, creamy consistency – much like frozen yogurt.

You need a little liquid but the amount depends on the consistency you want. Generally, add enough milk or ice cubes to puree the ingredients, yet have enough heft for the spoon to stand in the center of the bowl.

Let the kids get creative with an array of toppings to “decorate” their bowls much like they would an ice cream sundae. Sliced fruits, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon and granola, plus maple syrup to drizzle, make a healthful – and fun – assortment.

One of my favorite smoothie bowls is a thick blend of frozen berries, bananas, kale, almond milk and agave, topped with slices of strawberries, granola and dried goji berries.  My kids, however, are partial to a chocolate, hazelnut, hemp smoothie. They don’t even know the hemp (a plant-based protein loaded with iron and omega-3 fats) is in there. Its earthy yet neutral taste pairs well with chocolate, bananas and hazelnuts.

Finally, adding a handful or two of leafy greens like spinach, kale, or Swiss chard into your base blend lets you “sneak in” a serving of vegetables into your first meal of the day, without changing the fruity flavor you expect from a smoothie.

For a striking presentation, use dragon fruit to produce a vibrant pink bowl. This frozen puree looks beautiful with a ring of toasted coconut flakes or an edible flower floating in the center. Dragon fruit tastes similar to melon and is a great source of antioxidants, fiber, magnesium and B vitamins.
