The Best Smoothie Comes in a Bowl

The Best Smoothie Comes in a Bowl

You drink a smoothie for a healthy, easy meal. A new trend that takes that idea up a notch: the smoothie bowl. This thicker, creamier version calls for ingredients with more protein, like avocado, nut butter, and seeds, so you get a meal that is good for you but still keeps you full until lunch. Using a spoon instead of a straw means you slow down to enjoy what you are eating, and you will feel more satiated afterwards.

What you’ll need:

  • ¼ ripe avocado
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ cup frozen mango
  • 1 large handful spinach
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • ½ cup full-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

Toppings:

  • 2 tablespoons cashews
  • a handful of berries
  • 2 teaspoons shredded, unsweetened coconut
