6 Easy Smoothie Breakfast Bowls
McKel Hill

Smoothies as we know them have gotten a face-lift — good-bye smoothies in a glass, hello smoothie bowls. These blended bowls of goodness combine our love for smoothies with the comfort and nostalgia of eating breakfast from a bowl. If done right, they’re a better pick than most morning cereals because they pack in fresh fruits and vegetables along with healthy sources of protein and fat. This will keep you full till lunchtime. In fact, these bowls can really be enjoyed any time of day — even post-workout.

1 STRIPPED GREEN SMOOTHIE BOWL

This smoothie bowl has more than three servings of greens in just one bowl. And for those who might be veggie-averse, don’t stress -- it’s delicious! This bowl is loaded with fiber, vitamins A, C and K and other antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Romaine, parsley, kale, celery, apple, lemon and ginger are just a few of the powerful ingredients in this bowl. You can adjust the sweetness by adding extra frozen bananas or dates until it tastes great to you. CALORIES: 419

2 BLUEBERRY-BANANA CRUNCH SMOOTHIE BOWL

The combination of blueberries and bananas not only tastes great, but it also packs a punch of nutrients and natural electrolytes. The antioxidants in blueberries have been studied for their positive effects on cardiovascular health, ability to inhibit cancer cell growth, ability to stabilize blood sugars (thank you, fiber and low GI) and ability to improve skin health. Blueberries aren’t the only ones with all the health benefits -- bananas are great too. CALORIES: 495

3 ACAI BERRY BOWL

The acai berry is a low-sugar fruit, and it’s one of many beauty foods because it’s rich in antioxidants, minerals, vitamins -- specifically vitamin C for collagen production and repairing free radical damage -- and healthy fats for skin elasticity, moisture retention and healthy hormone production. Acai berries have anti-inflammatory benefits, cholesterol-lowering benefits and anticancer benefits. CALORIES: 362

5 TROPICAL SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIE BOWL

Spirulina is a unique ingredient that many of us don’t use, yet it’s incredibly high in protein and tastes delicious in this tropical fruit mix. It’s packed with nutrients, including vitamin E, copper, zinc, beta-carotene and B-complex vitamins. Not only does it provide a nutritional punch, but it also has an array of other health benefits, including supporting immunity, increasing muscle endurance and reducing oxidative stress.

6. Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl

6 BLUE MORNING SMOOTHIE BOWL

This is one of the most unique smoothie bowls, thanks in part to a hidden fibrous ingredient -- frozen zucchini! Frozen zucchini is a great way to increase the fiber in cold, thick smoothie bowls without relying heavily on frozen fruit, which contains more sugar and carbohydrates. The flavor of zucchini isn’t overpowering either, so you’re able to taste all of the other great pieces of this bowl. This is a great recipe for those watching their sugar intake. CALORIES: 563
