Kyla has always been a fan of smoothies and now her favorite thing to make is easy smoothie bowls! She makes a smoothie bowl almost everyday after school. She basically throws in any frozen fruit we have with a little water and blends several times until it all comes together. She's recently been adding chia seeds to the mix. This recipe is really just a starting point. You can use any fruit you'd like then blend it together. I added sliced bananas, chia seeds and coconut granola to the top for a little more fun!
I love that she's found a go-to healthy snack that she enjoys making all on her own. I've stocked the bottom rack of the freezer with frozen fruit so she has what she needs to make her smoothie bowls.
How to Make a Smoothie Bowl
Her favorite fruits to add are mango, banana, raspberry, strawberry and blueberries. The trick for smoothie bowls is to not add too much water. The smoothie bowl will stay thick longer with frozen fruit, vs fresh fruit too.
We typically use a handheld blender, but you can also use a regular blender for any smoothies or smoothie bowls.
