Smoothie bowls have become very popular with lots of great images recipes all over the place (including here!). A lot of the reason they have gained popularity is because of their vibrant color, creative look, and of course the delicious taste!
However, there are loads of other benefits you can get from smoothie bowls. In particular how good they are for you when replacing a meal or snack.
Here’s a list of smoothie bowl benefits and why you need to eat more of them.
Loads of Vitamins and Nutrients
The first reason more people should be eating smoothie bowls is the fact that they are packed with a lot of nutritional ingredients. Nearly all the ingredients are good for you, from fresh or frozen fruit, to protein-rich granola and fat-burning chia seeds.
You can also tweak them to get more of the vitamins and minerals you need. For example, if you need more vitamin C in your diet, choose fruits and vegetables that contain a good amount of vitamin C. Add those nutrients to your bowl and get your daily dose in one meal.
Easy Nutritional Control
If you are concerned about having too much sugar, calories or fat in your smoothie bowl, don’t worry. It is very easy to control exactly what the nutritional content is for every bowl.
If you want to reduce the sugar, lessen how much fruit you use, and make up for it with protein powder, green leafy vegetables or adding in more yogurt or milk.
To watch your calories, avoid using full-fat milk and use low-calorie fruits and vegetables. This allows you to easily customize the smoothie bowl to fit your needs.
Endless Flavor Options
No matter how picky someone is about their food, they are bound to find a smoothie bowl recipe they like. The great thing about smoothies in general is that it is easy to control the flavor by adding in the types of fruits or vegetables someone likes.
If you are making one for your kids, choose their favorite fruits and toppings, and they are sure to enjoy it more than cereal. It tastes sweet without all that added processed sugar from their favorite bowl of sugary cereal. You can’t go wrong with a good smoothie bowl.
They Are Pretty!
Smoothie bowls can be made to look like a work of art. Even if you aren’t creative, they still look great with vibrant colors and texture. These bowls make it so easy to be creative and really enjoy what you’re eating. While making a smoothie bowl is fun, but eating it is even better.
Because they look so good, it is easy to get kids and teenagers more willing to try them. It is a great way to get them to eat lower-fat and more nutritious foods each day. Let the kids pitch in to help with the bowls, especially with arranging the toppings. It will go a long way to encouraging them to eat more fruit and vegetables.
