Mango Smoothie Bowl – A thick mango smoothie base is topped with healthy toppings to make for a filling meal any time of the day
Instead of making a plain, old smoothie, I decided to use this opportunity to make my first smoothie bowl. Smoothie bowls have always intrigued me because they allow me to eat my smoothie instead of drink them, which I knew it would make it last a million times longer. You know, it’s the same theory as milkshakes vs ice cream.
Because smoothie bowls are eaten instead of sipped, you can load them with all your favorite healthy toppings: nuts, granola, fruit, chia seeds, shaved coconut – whatever you want! These toppings also help fill you up while also getting tons of nutrients.
Alright…without further ado, here is my Mango Smoothie Bowl!
When deciding what flavor to make, I wanted fruit rich in Vitamin C to help build immunity for the insane cold/flu season going on this year. So I decided to go with mango. I love the flavor of mango, especially in a smoothie so this flavor was a win-win!
To make this smoothie bowl, it’s not much more work than a smoothie – just less liquid. Because of that, I needed to use my food processor to break down the frozen chunks of mango and banana. But you can use a fancy Vitamix or equivalent high-performing blender, if you have one.
Simply add your frozen fruit to your food processor/blender, add some honey, milk and/or juice, and then blend until smooth. Because this smoothie is super thick, it may take a couple minutes to get it smooth without all the extra liquid.
This recipe is probably the easiest one you’ll find on the blog so you really don’t need any tips to get this right the first time. The only tip I have for ya is regarding the blending process. If you’re having issues getting it super smooth, add a little extra milk or juice and that should do the trick.
There you have it – a yummy, healthy treat to help you get your serving of immunity-boosting Vitamin C this season. Plus, it’s a great way to get a break from the hearty soups and stews. You’re gonna love this refreshing treat!
