(Paperback / Robert Rose / 240 Pages / $24.95)
Description: Smoothie bowls are the perfect way to add fresh fruits, superfoods and proteins to everyday fare. Adding a smoothie bowl to morning routines guarantees a great start to the day and for lunch too. Smoothie bowls are thicker than regular smoothies - thick enough to eat with a spoon. These 200 recipes can be enjoyed anytime for a refreshing, filling and healthy meal or even a delicious dessert.
Verdict: Fruit, undeniably healthy in its whole-food form, is immensely more palatable to many of us when sliced up and pulverized into a smoothie. But are those sweet and delicious concoctions really good for you? Our group of experts offer a caveated yes.
Drinking smoothies, especially for breakfast, is one of the easiest way to add some fruit to your diet, of this we all know. Which is far better than no fruit at all, I think we would all agree, even if it is a "cheats way" of getting our vitamins and such. Calories from fruit can add up quickly, so it’s good to add protein and veggies, and so what better way than to create your very own Smoothie Bowls!
Whether a smoothie bowl is packed with fruit, leafy greens, nuts or a base of coffee or tea, there is a recipe here perfectly suited for any occasion. The colors, textures and crunch are incredible and all sorts of delicious toppings can be added that will take a meal to a whole new level.
