Bowl them over with bowls of berry smoothies!
Want to take your smoothies up a notch? Throw ’em in a bowl! Okay, maybe it’s not that simple…but it’s not very complicated, either. Smoothie bowls are delicious, healthy, and, depending on your level of patience and creativity, epically instagrammable. A casual walk through Pinterest or any number of food blogs provides endless inspiration for smoothie bowls…from the simple to the sublime!
All you need is your favorite smoothie recipe and as many toppings as you please, and you’re pretty much good to go. Well•Pict Berries raspberries and strawberries make great additions to smoothie bowls—both as a base and to add to your collection of toppings!
Since runnier smoothies tend to cause toppings to droop, you’ll want to make sure your recipe yields a sturdy enough smoothie to keep your flax seeds and sliced berries afloat. Make sure to use minimal liquid, lots of ice, bananas, dairy or dairy-free yogurt; and to really thicken things up add a scoop of raw oats and/or hemp or chia seeds.
Once your smoothie is blended, it’s time to decorate! Luckily, the most colorful, visually appealing foods are often the tastiest—finding the right toppings for your smoothie bowl is a breeze. In addition to Well•Pict raspberries and sliced strawberries, try blueberries, coconut shavings, mini dark chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, and your favorite nuts (sliced almonds look beautiful fanned out along the side of the bowl).
