If you’re anything like me, a smoothie sounds good at pretty much anytime of the year or the day. A smoothie bowl is equally just as awesome a snack as a drink form of  smoothie. For one, they taste amazing if made right. Secondly, they’re a healthy snack! Can’t forget about those “eat healthy” New Year’s resolutions just yet, guys.

The thing is, we don’t always have the time or the will to go all the way down to a smoothie bar and pay ten bucks for a smoothie bowl. So today I’m here to give you some tips and ideas on how to utilize the fruit you mom bought at the grocery store and put it to good use. I bet she’d be happy to see you eating your fruit.

The basic smoothie bowl is your classic acai, which pretty much everyone likes. These are great because most of the ingredients you likely already have at home except for maybe the actual acai berries. By the way, acai berries are high in antioxidants, protein, and fiber so you might as well pick them up anyways. Many people get it in a powder or a puree which is easier for smoothie bowl making. You’re on your way to being a health fanatic, social media obsessed millennial already, congrats!! Go to hot yoga after and you’re above par.

The following list of items was helped from https://hurrythefoodup.com/how-to-make-acai-bowl/.

Gather these items:

  • 1 handful frozen berry mix
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1 pack acai puree (or 2 tsp of acai powder with 3-4 crushed ice cubes)
  • 3-4 tbsp rolled oats
  • ⅔ cups soy milk / rice milk (just keep it gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (or honey for non-vegans)

For garnish

  • coconut flakes
  • chia seeds
  • fruits
  • mango

 

What to do:

Literally just put it all in the blender and press start. That’s it guys. Add what you would like the garnish on top; I would recommend the granola and coconut flakes with honey. Enjoy!
