A smoothie bowl is made up of a few different things, first the smoothie. When making a smoothie bowl, you want your smoothie base to be a little bit thicker than if you were going to drink it so it is easily eaten with a spoon and can support the toppings. The toppings for your smoothie bowl are endless, granola, fresh fruit, coconut, and nut butters are all great choices.

Here are some of our favorite versions:
