Yes. And yes. And top it with all manner of yummy stuff that gives great texture and boosts the nutrition even more.
This Wild Blueberry Blast Smoothie Bowl is from The Smoothie Bowl Coloring Cookbook from the Meal Makeover Moms. It’s a FREE download on their site, so head over and get your copy.
The cookbook features ten recipes for smoothie bowls–like a Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie Bowl and Tropical Twist Smoothie Bowl–and ten pages of “calming” mandala designs for adults or kids to color. (Apparently, coloring has become trendy for adults–and I’m late, as usual.)
These smoothies are thicker than the ones you drink, so they can stand up to toppings and be eaten with a spoon. You add less liquid than you do with regular smoothies and include thickening ingredients, such as chia seeds, yogurt, or banana.
Sky’s the limit for toppings. I grabbed what we had on hand for this blueberry smoothie bowl–granola, fresh berries, and unsweetened coconut–but you can use whatever you and your kids like, including nuts, seeds, frozen fruit, or even chocolate chips.
- ¾ cup 100% orange juice
- ¾ cup frozen Wild Blueberries
- ½ cup 2% vanilla Greek-style yogurt
- ½ cup frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- Place the orange juice, frozen Wild Blueberries, yogurt, pineapple, and chia seeds in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour into individual bowls and garnish with your choice of optional toppings, such as frozen Wild Blueberries, pineapple, strawberries, and granola.
