Smoothie bowls are what’s up right now, am I right? I can’t open up Instagram without seeing twenty different smoothie bowls. Well, I don’t know about you guys, but up here in the PNW it’s pretty much full blown Fall now. I decided to put together a post for you guys that’s kind of my ode to the Summer. A farewell with a few Smoothie bowl recipes inspired by two places I’ve been missing lately! So, I’ve partnered with Odwalla® to bring you my Thailand Smoothie Bowl and my Mexico Smoothie Bowl.
Obviously, the first thing I did was head over to my second home, Target. I love Target. You go in for groceries, you leave with three new outfits and a beautiful pink suede bench. True story. And I love that I can find everything I need easily, like my Odwalla® fix. I love to drink the green one after a long night or day of traveling. I love that their drinks are minimally processed and good for you, too!
Thailand Smoothie Bowl
You Will Need:
So, for this bad boy, I’m using only ingredients that you can find in Thailand.
First things first, let’s focus on the base. You have two choices. Either you can freeze your Odwalla® Mango Tango® and then just blend it with a few ice cubes (this is what I did) or you can just blend it as is with some frozen mango slices! You just can’t argue with great tasting nutrition!
Once you’re all blended pour it into a bowl and start adding your toppings! Honestly, people always do big slices of the dragonfruit with the skin on because it looks pretty but you can’t eat it that way so why lie to you! I just peel it and slice it up, chop of the mango, and add a handful of granola. Then add a few dallops of greek yogurt and voila!
Mexico Smoothie Bowl
You Will Need:
Follow the same steps as before but this time we’re going to add a larger amount of the greek yogurt (to break up with of the richness of the chocolate), add some sliced oranges and bananas and your crushed up chocolate element. I intended to use crushed up dark chocolate but when I realized someone got into my stash I just crushed up some brown brittle with a rolling pin. So good!
I love making my own smoothie bowls and trying new flavor combinations. Have any of you ever considered using a frozen Odwalla® beverage as a smoothie base instead of just your standard frozen fruit or fruit and ice? Honestly, it adds so much flavor I might never go back! What are you favorite smoothie bowl toppings?
