The fascination of smoothie bowls is in their looks!
It is important to me if a recipe book to inspire me to make my own colourful world.
I will probably not open the book again.
1. Logging them in MyFitnessPal indicates most are between about 200-350 calories, depending on ingredients and toppings.
2. Most have ingredients I can find in local grocery stores or even Walmart.
3. And I like that I can make several different recipes buying just a handful of basic ingredients.
4. Lots of fresh/frozen ingredients and only a few use any processed ingredients.
1. Typos! Once you get the hang of it, they become easier to spot. As a rule, most recipes use 1/4 of liquid, so if you see 3/4, that's likely a typo, and you end up with a drinkable smoothie. Not bad, but not the intention. I've tried adjusting those recipes and they work fine.
2. No nutritional breakdown for the base recipe. I get that toppings can change the nutritional analysis, but I'd least like the basic calories, protein, fat, and sugar for each. (And speaking of that, I substitute powdered peanut butter for regular, which reduces the fat content.)
3. Stock up on bananas! If you don't like bananas, this book is probably NOT for you. Not all recipes require them, but a majority of them do. (Luckily I love them.)
I've seen other smoothie bowl books, but those recipes often have long lists of ingredients or ingredients that are too exotic for my taste (spirulina, anyone?). All in all, I'd love to see a sequel to this book.
I really love the unexpected combinations that some of the many, many recipes offer, like the plum honeydew or the watermelon pomegranate. My whole family really loves include the complete breakfast smoothie bowl, which we enjoy with toppings of chopped pecans and shredded coconut. The breakfast-to-go and superfood smoothie are also popular in our family. I really like the upside-down apple pie bowl — with extra cinnamon — and the green coconut bowl, which includes some kale in it, so we can easily get some extra greens in our diet.
I highly recommend this book!!
