Why Green Smoothie Bowls?
If you haven’t seen lately I have become a little smoothie obsessed. I have never been a big eater and mostly because I don’t like to cook a big meal just for myself. Everyone in our family likes to eat at different times and different foods. So I pretty much have to fend for myself if I am going to eat.
Since I don’t like to have a messy kitchen, I am also a clean as you go type gal. so if it’s quick, tastes good and I don’t have to do a lot of scrubbing than I have have found the pot of gold.
It’s actually the pot of green, I guess. Green smoothies that is.
As much as I love smoothies, the bowl has some extra fiber, when I just want a little more crunch to my food. This is why I love the green smoothie bowl with all the added texture in each bite.
This is the first bowl, on the blog. I am already starting on a new one for next week, so don’t miss it.
One thing about making the bowls is that it is a presentation or feast for your eyes. The contrasting colors make it so mouth-watering you can’t help but love them.
Make sure when you are making your bowls, if you haven’t used a recipe, add some beautiful reds or purples on top of the green smoothie. It will make all the difference if you do.
Puffed Quinoa Benefits
They’re high in fiber which controls our blood sugar levels, regulates our bowel movements, and contributes to healthy digestion. It is also Vegan and Gluten-Free. It is similar to a rice crispy in texture.
Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that grows in both salt and fresh water. It may be one of the most nutrient-dense foods on earth. It has protein, nutrients, and amino acids. It is compared to eating eggs. Learn more about all its benefits. Spirulina is also considered a Superfood.

Best Type of Blender for Smoothie Bowl
When making smoothies, the best consistency is achieved when using a high-powered blender. I use a Ninja Smoothie Maker. You can also use a Vitamix. This will blend the frozen fruit the best, and not leave chunks of fruit or ice. I prefer to use a mix of fresh and frozen fruit without ice.
