What Are Smoothie Bowls?

A smoothie bowl is a smoothie eaten from a bowl instead of sipped from a cup. The main difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl is that smoothie bowls are topped with things such as granola, fruit, and seeds.

Dole Sunshine

Last fall we were introduced to Dole Sunshine when we joined them at their headquarters to do a Facebook live.  I truly felt that their product and their culture promoted that feeling of homemade, simple, and special.  I’ve been a long time fan of their products – have you tried their frozen dark chocolate covered banana slices?!  They are my fav, and have been the perfect solution to skipping dessert. And my kids gobble up their fruit bowls.  I love that it is a snack I don’t feel guilty giving them.

Smoothie Bowl Q&A

Are smoothie bowls healthy?

Smoothie bowls can be a good source of fiber, carbs, and sometimes protein and healthy fats. But they can quickly turn into high-calorie sugar bombs if you’re not careful. For this recipe we’ve used Whole Foods and low calorie coconut milk to keep this recipe healthy.

Whats the difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl?

What’s the main difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl is that a smoothie is sipped through a straw, and a smoothie bowl is eaten from a bowl. This allows for adding delicious toppings.

Can I freeze or refrigerate this recipe?

We do not recommend saving this smoothie bowl as prepared.  It is best consumed right after it is made.  You can however prepare the ingredients in a bag, with the exception of the liquids and freeze until ready to dump into the blender.
