What is a smoothie bowl?
Smoothie bowls are similar to smoothies that you drink. They are both cold blends of fruits and liquids.
But, what makes smoothie bowls different is that they are usually thicker than smoothies you drink.
With smoothie bowls, you can add other ingredients which have a crunch, like nuts, or top it with unblended toppings of your choice.
And, like the name suggests, smoothie bowls are served in bowls rather than glasses.
