Smoothies are a great breakfast, lunch or snack option when you are looking for a quick but nutritious meal. While drinking smoothies is part of many people’s morning routines, why not switch it up and serve your smoothie in a bowl?
Smoothie bowls seem to be everywhere – from Pinterest, to restaurant menus – and we understand why. These thickened-up smoothies are a great base for fun and flavorful toppings that make smoothies a little more filling, fueling you for the day ahead.
Thicken your smoothie with chia seeds, bananas, peanut butter or yogurt and add your favourite toppings. Fresh fruit, dried fruit, more chia seeds, nuts, granola, coconut and even chocolate – everything but the kitchen sink.
This Blueberry Smoothie Bowl recipe will have you thinkiing twice the next time you want to pour your smoothie into the nearest glass. Whether you make one in your personal blender as a breakfast for one or whip them up in a blender for the entire family, smoothie bowls are sure to become a new breakfast favorite in your house. Grab the biggest spoon in the drawer and enjoy.
Smoothies are an easy way to incorporate fresh fruits and veggies into your diet. When you find your favourite fresh produce at the grocery store, make it into handy freezer packs to save yourself some time and effort the next time you crave a smoothie. Whether you want to blend a quick breakfast for the kids or fuel-up after a workout, all you have to do is add these freezer packs to your blender along with juice (and in some cases yogurt) and your smoothie is ready with the push of a button.
During recipe development, the test kitchen found that using room temperature juice works best when making smoothies with frozen fruits and vegetables. We know most of you will use juice that you already have in the refrigerator and that’s just fine. You may need to add more liquid to achieve the consistency you want, or use the tamper to help mix the ingredients as the smoothie blends. You can also leave the freezer pack on the counter while you hop in the shower or run the plastic bag under warm water in the sink for a few seconds to help thaw out the ingredients a bit before blending.
