Superfood Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls have been in the spotlight for some time now, and for good reason. They are super tasty, easy to prepare, and you can pretty much make up any flavour combination you like! My daughter LOVES to create her own for breakfast and happily adds spinach, avocado and all kinds of goodies in there. Being a fussy eater, this is a massive win for me. It’s amazing what giving her a little bit of control in the kitchen has done for her eating habits. Sure, she has had some fails (brown dirty coloured smoothie bowl anyone?) but generally she gets it right and creates some amazing bowls, that keep her going for a few hours. I always encourage her to add a serve of each macro nutrient, fat, carbohydrate and protein. This keeps her blood sugar levels regulated, preventing spikes and then subsequent crashes from occurring throughout the morning, particularly important when its a school day.
Smoothie bowls aren’t necessarily a breakfast only meal. Enjoy them as a morning or afternoon snack, or you can even make a more decadent bowl for dessert. Let me know in the comments your favourite flavour combos!
