A: I set out to create a creamy smoothie bowl without the addition of any banana and if I dare say so myself, it was a success! After seeing all the hype on Instagram I had to try it out for myself so I made this bowl last week with peas and cauliflower, yup you read that right.
I was as weirded out as you probably are but trust me, it was the creamiest smoothie I’ve ever had and it actually tasted SO good. I’m the type of person that likes my healthy food to taste good so I would only recommend it if it actually tasted great.
A: I see all these smoothie bowls on Instagram that are loaded with tons of fruit (upwards of 4 bananas) then topped with more fruit. It’s concerning because that is a lot of sugar, yes healthy sugar from fruit, but still sugar nonetheless. That much sugar is not healthy for anyone regardless of the source. This bowl has just the right amount of sweetness to where it’s not overloaded with sugar.
Blend until smooth and top with some berries, coconut flakes and low sugar granola (or your favorite toppings!)
