How To Make Smoothie Bowls

Hi guys!  How was your weekend?  My friend Nina and I tried a restaurant and brewery called Hoof Hearted that just opened a location across the street from our apartments on Friday night, then I returned to my hermit ways yesterday and today.

Today’s post is about how to make smoothie bowls, or thicker versions of smoothies served with toppings and eaten with a spoon.  Or, as I think of them, a way to trick yourself into thinking you’ve eaten ice cream when you actually haven’t.  Instead of specific recipes, I’ve just listed the components and offered some ideas of what to include –  almost any combination of flavors and ingredients will work.  I like to add a teaspoon of xanthan gum before blending for extra thickness – you can pick it up at Target.
