Can you say no to these smoothie bowls with an abundance of fresh, colorful and mouth-watering ingredients? They are packed with healthy vegetable proteins that make a great breakfast option or healthy snack during the day. And another good thing is that they are so consistent that will keep you full and the natural sugar from fruit will help you resist sugar cravings. And yes, oh, they look so yummy!
However, when you see these neon-colored smoothies, they somehow look artificial and complicated… You may think they have exotic ingredients that are hard to find or added chemicals, or you’ll spend a lot of time preparing them. None of these are actually true.
You just need to put the ingredients in a blender, mix them, put the composition in a bowl and decorate it with fruit and nuts. The whole process will take about 10-15 minutes, they can be an easy breakfast or healthy snacks for busy people. If you’re not a morning person, you can prepare the mix in the evening and leave it in the fridge overnight, however, it’s best to consume it fresh to avoid losing the powerful antioxidants.
