This is the first smoothie bowl I ever made. I sense that from now on this will be our breakfast for quite some time. If you like regular smoothies, you just can’t miss with a smoothie bowl for breakfast. It is a perfect fit for busy mornings. Quick to make and healthy, it is a great way to start your day. You can even make kefir smoothie bowl the evening before if you don’t have time for blending in the morning. If you store it in the fridge, it will stay fresh till the morning.
A smoothie bowl is basically a thicker smoothie. You can thicken it with nuts, oatmeal, seeds, fruits, avocado, or coconut. That way it is extremely filling and with toppings it will look insanely pretty. For the toppings you can use fruit, nuts, seeds, coconut, or edible flowers. Just get creative and use anything you fancy.
I made my smoothie bowl with kefir. Kefir is amazing. It has a mild taste that resembles yogurt. It is filled with probiotics. Probiotics are live microorganisms that are good for your health. They provide benefits for your digestive system when consumed. Besides that, kefir contains high levels of vitamin B12, calcium, vitamin K2, magnesium, and biotin, and you can even easily make it at home. I sometimes do because it is so easy and all you have to use is milk and kefir starter.
If you don’t like kefir, you can use plain yogurt. And for a dairy-free version you can replace it with plant based milk and add some more dry ingredients like coconut flour, oats or flax seed to thicken it.
