From what I read about smoothie bowls, the point is to make it thicker than a regular smoothie. If you can simply drink it, why even bother with putting it in a bowl, right? It has to be worth your while to lose the mobility that makes smoothies to convenient. The smoothie bowl should also have a variety of toppings which isn't typically a feature of a cup smoothie. The ingredients of these bowls are typically fruits, vegetables, and nuts. In Oregon, it is now the perfect time of year to forage through the supermarket for fresh ingredients because so many delicious items are in season.
I was inspired by all of the fresh Oregon produce. I decided to make my smoothie bowl only with ingredients found in Oregon. There are berries galore, nutritious greens, seeds, and crunchy nuts- everything needed to make a hearty and healthy smoothie bowl.
Oregon Smoothie Bowl
Nutritious bowl inspired by the beaver state.
- 1/2 cup Tillamook Plain Greek Yogurt
- 2 cups Fresh mixed berries
- 3 Chopped organic kale leaves
- 1 tbsp Honey
- 2 tbsp Raw pumpkin seeds
- 1 tbsp Chopped hazelnuts
- A few Extra berries for toppings
Rinse the berries. I used strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. Cut the strawberries in half and remove the green top.Rinse the kale and chop.Blend the yogurt, honey, berries, and kale in a blender for at least 2 minutes on medium to high speed. Pour the smoothie into a small bowl and top with seeds, chopped nuts, and a few berries.
