There seems to be a new trend for these low-carb smoothie bowls. It is essentially a smoothie in a bowl, with added toppings, which add more nutrition and texture to the smoothie. I have just used a very simple berry and apple juice smoothie, but you can use any smoothie recipe/ toppings that you want. You can also put protein shake into the bowl and add toppings. I eat this as a breakfast/brunch, dessert or just as a snack.
Ingredients: Serves 1
For the smoothie:
-2 handfuls of frozen (or fresh) mixed berries. I used a mixture of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, cranberries and cherries.
-1 glass of (cloudy) apple juice
For the toppings:
-Chopped fruit. I used strawberries, blueberries and kiwi.
-Nuts and seeds. I used a mixture of chopped almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, coconut flakes, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
-Mint leaves, to garnish
-A drizzle of honey, to garnish
- To make the smoothie, blitz up the berries and apple juice. Keep adding apple juice until the smoothie is the consistency that you want. You do not want the smoothie to be too runny, but not too thick either. Once mixed, empty the smoothie into a wide bowl.
- I put the smoothie bowl in the microwave for 20 seconds, as the smoothie was too cold to eat due to the frozen berries. (Optional).
- Add the fruit to the smoothie bowl.
- Add the toppings and garnishes to the bowl.
- Eat with a spoon. Enjoy!
