I've been on a smoothie kick lately--this cherry pineapple ginger smoothie is my current workday breakfast obsession. Smoothies are a quick, simple way to get in nutrients and hydration and the flavor combinations are virtually endless, plus, they're easy to grab and go. On the weekends or when I just have more time, I like to do smoothie bowls. This PB&J smoothie bowl is an old favorite. Today, I'm sharing tips for making easy, 3-step smoothie bowls with Odwalla, ZICO, and fresh-cut fruit.
How to Make Easy 3-Step Smoothie Bowls
Add a sliced banana and one 15.2 ounce bottle of the Odwalla 100% juice smoothie of your choice to a blender and pulse until smooth. Here, I used Odwalla Citrus C Monster for a boost of vitamin C. Doesn't it just look like a bowl of sunshine?! For an extra boost of hydration, I like to add half a cup of ZICO coconut water, which has 5 electrolytes and as much potassium as a banana, as well. The banana helps thicken the smoothie so that your fresh-cut fruit toppings won't sink to the bottom of your smoothie bowl.
This step is pretty self-explanatory. Pour the smoothie mixture into a bowl. Now you're ready to adorn it with fun mix-ins that will provide different flavors and textures. The Odwalla Citrus C Monster is a convenient time-saver in this particular smoothie bowl. Other Odwalla varieties I like and recommend are Strawberry C Monster, Original Superfood, Peachy Ginger or Blueberry Monster. Each one is non-GMO verified, made with 100% juice, and no added sugar.
This is your chance to get creative and add more flavor and texture to your smoothie bowl. I used fresh-cut strawberries and blueberries from Randalls to top this smoothie bowl. Here are some topping ideas to get you started:
- Fresh Berries
- Sliced Bananas
- Sliced Pineapple
- Sliced Almonds
- Walnut Pieces
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Sunflower Seeds
- Banana or Plantain Chips
- Dried Cranberries
Adding texture to your smoothies and smoothie bowls keeps things interesting and the possibilities are pretty much endless. My post-workout smoothie and these tropical green breakfast smoothies are great examples of that. 🙂 If you have creative ideas for toppings or texture mix-ins, share them in the comments below!
