How do you make a Smoothie Bowl?
If you like smoothies, you’ll love Smoothie Bowls! I love that you make the base nice and thick so that you can eat it with a spoon, it just seems to fill you up more when you’re eating with a spoon versus drinking through a straw. And, you’re getting so many good-for-you ingredients to fuel your body, it has to be good!
There are so many ways you could make a smoothie bowl – with spinach or kale, regular or yogurt with bananas, mangos, apples or pretty much any fruit or vegetable you can think of. Add protein powder or not. Add coconut oil or avocados for a dose of healthy fat. You can even add nuts right into your blender. It’s up to you!
See that granola on top? It’s actually Van’s Gluten Free Blueberry Walnut Granola! Gluten free and whole grain! You can feel great about adding this wholesome treat right on top of your smoothie bowl!
Van’s Foods has several flavors of Gluten Free Granola, but the Blueberry Walnut is my favorite! It’s soft baked and perfect!
I can’t get enough! I add Van’s Gluten Free Blueberry Walnut Granola to my smoothie bowls, as a quick pick-me-up in the afternoon and by the handful and on top of my yogurt in the mornings. YUMMY! With no artificial colors, egg, dairy and corn free, Van’s Gluten Free Blueberry Walnut Granola are the perfect snack – no matter how you eat them!
