SMOOTHIE BOWLS 📷😍 How beautiful are ours? Check that picture! 📷📷
I know we are obsessed!. A lot of you are asking about what Smoothie bowls are all about and we decided to give some useful information and facts about them…because you’ll be having them in our Luxuryoga Retreat daily.
A smoothie bowl starts with a thick blend of whole foods, such as frozen fruits, veggies and other healthful mix-ins (e.g. avocado, oats or yogurt. Ours are vegan, so it’s only frozen fruits). Compared to the smoothies you’re used to sipping with a straw, the base of a smoothie bowl has a slightly thicker, almost ice-cream like consistency.
Smoothie bowls first became popular a couple years ago as a way to make a thicker smoothie you could eat with a bowl and spoon. They soon became popular for breakfast, even becoming a major trend on Instagram and other social media accounts because of their enticing appearance. The thing is: they taste even better than they look and they are so amazing to have in the summer, because they are colder than normal smoothies.
One of the top reasons you should consider eating smoothie bowls is because they are very good for you. You have full control over the amount of fat, calories, and carbs by changing the ingredients, and you get all the added nutrients of those ingredients.
In our retreat we make sure that they are balanced and each day, they vary as we look at the other meals we cook through the day, to make sure you are getting the best nutrition possible.
Smoothie bowls often contain fruits, nuts, seeds, and veggies, all of which are loaded with vitamins and minerals your body needs. You may have any combination of nutrients, but often antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, and many other essential nutrients. One thing we love to add is “ Super Greens”.
Organic GreenPower Blend from Starwest Botanicals is a synergistic blend of 14 potent, concentrated plant foods (green vegetables), naturally packed with nutrients that encourage optimum health.
It is a complete green supplement packed with all the vitamins, minerals and enzymes that our bodies desperately need, provided by the “superfood” spirulina, which is 60 percent vegetable protein; barley grass, which is naturally rich in copper, potassium, calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, enzymes and chlorophyll. High in Vitamin A, Iron, and B Vitamins.
Vegetarian and Vegan. Fat-free and caffeine free. No sweeteners, fillers (such as such as bran, rice or oat), or non-functional ingredients added. Loaded with spirulina and chlorophyll. You can’t really taste it but more often than not, our smoothie bowls have some super greens in them.
