I teamed up with SaladPower to bring you a two part series of smoothie bowl recipes using veggies (yes veggies! you heard that right!) SaladPower juice is filled with a veggie superfood blend rather than sugary fruit juices that are high in calories (start checking those ingredients!) Basically, I’m telling you that you can drink your salad (efficient right?) I love a smoothie bowl not only for the nourishment but also the fact that they make such a refreshing meal for after a workout (+the added nutrition boost from salad power helps with my post workout recovery)
This recipe uses the pineapple juice (but remember, it still is veggies first!) Check out their site for other flavors to try.
Having a liquid base is the integral foundation for any good smoothie bowl (it is all about building that smooth and thick texture) I usually go for an almond milk or water, but using salad power gives that extra nutrient boost that I am always looking for.
One of the most fun parts of making a smoothie bowl vs. a regular smoothie is choosing the toppings! I am always trying new combinations, so have fun with this part! (think superfoods, nuts, fruit, granola)
Check Back Friday For Part 2!
