Smoothie Soup

At this point, if you use social media, you’ve noticed the smoothie bowl trend. It looks like the perfect blend of health and fashion somehow mixed up into a bowl. These smoothie bowls have a lot of pressure on them to model perfectly – one berry out of place and suddenly the bowl is just mush and not worth the insta.

Obviously, I need to explore this.

I did a quick Pinterest search of recipes to see if I was confused by what the base of these bowls was – but no, I correctly understand that this is really just a bowl of smoothie with a very staged presentation. Although I’m confused by why you might want to eat a smoothie like a soup rather than drink it – after all, isn’t the point of a smoothie that you can chug it while you’re stuck in traffic to save time? – I’ve decided to embark on a journey of creating the perfect smoothie bowl.

Since this is essentially just a smoothie in bowl form, I’m going to stick with my go-to items for smoothies:

  • I always use baby spinach as the base
  • Frozen berries – this time around I’ll use raspberries
  • Chocolate vegan Shakeology protein powder
  • Coconut Milk

I’ll top the bowl with some organic, whole chia seeds and organic, unsweetened coconut flakes!

Basically I’m going to approach this as though I’m making a regular smoothie, but I’m going to dial back on the liquid to thicken it a bit, and then wha-la, add some toppings!

I’ll let you know how it goes.
