Blueberry Banana Acai Smoothie Bowl

by Stef Ramey

Smoothie bowls are one of the biggest crazes in the health food world right now. Whether you have been out to Cali and cooled off with an acai bowl, scrolled past a cafe in Bali posting their favorite pitaya smoothie bowl recipe on Insta, or maybe you have even stopped by Laney & Lu for a superfood smoothie bowl, I know chances are pretty good that they have caught your eye at some point. I mean, how could they not, they are B E A U T I F U L… delicious, and packed with all things good. But do you know how to make one? If not, you will now! They are super easy to make. You essentially make any smoothie of your choice, but cut the liquid in half to make it really thick so you can eat it with a spoon. Pour it over granola or fruit, and top it with anything you can think of. From berries to bee pollen, your bowl is your oyster!

I LOVE smoothie bowls because I can jam pack it with nutrient dense foods that will keep me satiated for hours. While I am also a drinkable smoothie lover, the act of putting that chilled spoon in my mouth and crunching on some fresh fruit makes me feel like I am getting in a whole meal, not just a snack.
