Smoothie bowls (also sometimes called Acai bowls) are becoming increasingly more popular, so I decided to give it a try, and was quite pleasantly surprised! These smoothie bowls seems to be less filling than a traditional smoothie and can be a great way to pack a lot of nutrients into a small serving. What’s also great about these smoothie bowls is the variety they allow, because you can add virtually anything to them.
This particular smoothie bowl is a blend of fruits, grains and protein-rich hemp seeds. It has great variety provided by the different textures of the ingredients. The variety of ingredients including the berries, including the goji’s, blueberries, and raspberries are great sources of antioxidants, and when mixed with the hemp seeds and oats makes for a well-rounded breakfast.
