I need to tell you something really important: This strawberry mango smoothie bowl is so insanely refreshing and healthy, you will feel like you are sipping on a delicious treat on the beach.
I often find myself desperately craving smoothie bowls. I’ve always been a big fan of smoothies, but the idea of topping it with pretty much whatever your heart desires and eating it with a spoon is very enticing.
I love experimenting with different flavor combos for smoothies, and very rarely do I not like the result. This one is clean and simple, and even works well without the almond butter and coconut oil if you don’t have that on hand.
Smoothie bowls don’t need to be complicated or super time-consuming. I will often whip one of these up before heading out the door on a busy morning and eat it as soon as I get to work. Only 5-10 minutes of work, and you have a beautiful, delicious, and nutritious breakfast waiting for you.
The key is having everything handy and knowing what you’re in the mood for. I pretty much always add granola because I love the added crunch in combination with the creamy consistency of the smoothie. Just delicious I tell ya.
I always keep frozen fruit on hand as well. It is so much easier to have the fruit prepped in the freezer, and just ready to be thrown in the blender. It also allows for the smoothie to be super cold and creamy. I find my smoothie tastes just a tad bland if i’ve added too much ice, but with the frozen fruit you shouldn’t need much ice at all.
Smoothie Bowls are a current trend across the nation, and I couldn’t agree more. It is a serious breakfast #win in my opinion.
