Have you guys tried smoothie bowls already?
Smoothie bowls are essentially thick smoothies you eat in a bowl, finished off with your choice of toppings.
I like having smoothie bowls because it’s like eating healthy ice cream all the time =D They’re refreshing and feeling ko, I can eat a lot of it without the guilty feeling of over-indulging. They are also very filling so you can have it for a meal. Busog ka na minus the hundreds of calories.
I keep on seeing in my Instagram feed pretty smoothie bowls made by my mommy friends.
Na-inggit ako so I tried making one for breakfast.
Ang pangit hahahaha! But if a kitchen idiot like me can make a smoothie bowl, I’m sure you (and your 7 year old kid) can make one too.
Ganito yan. First you would need ingredients for your base. You will need fruits and vegetables. For this kind of smoothie bowl, I usually use two mangoes and one banana just to make that small serving. I freeze the fruits kasi eh and I don’t put ice kaya kailangan madaming fruits. It’s not cheap, making these healthy smoothie bowls. Apart from you need a combination of fruits and veggies, you need toppings. I looked for the toppings like the Chia seeds, slivered almonds and granola and I was surprised because one pack of Chia seeds can cost around Php 600! Exage! It’s not nice naman if tipirin mo yung Chia seeds on your bowls right? And the slivered almonds, saan ba nakakabili nun?!
Second, you can make the smoothie bowls by using a high powered blender. If you’re like me na smoothie ng smoothie, macocomatose ang blender niyo until ma-dedz na siya sa over-use. A nice blender doesn’t come cheap ha?
I just have to note that medyo matrabaho making a smoothie bowl. I told Wowa to eat these for breakfast or dinner kaysa pa-deliver siya ng padeliver. Okay daw pero ka-tamad daw to make one. Hahaha!
To all smoothie bowl lover like me, I want to let you know that you can buy delicious smoothie bowls in BLISS BOWLS, Manila’s FIRST ever Smoothie Bowl Bar!
Bliss Bowls smoothie bowls are made of 100% pure fruit, vegetables and superfoods, with absolutely no ice, water, dairy or sugar added.
I’ve tried them muthers and I swear to God, napaka-sarap talaga niya! I am amazed how they can achieve the right kind of sweetness without putting sugar!
I’ve tried the three best selling flavors.
First, I tried the Berry Bliss.
The Berry Bliss is their best selling bowl that boosts performance, endurance, and immunity. It is a delicious and refreshing blend of strawberries, beets, banana, and fresh coco water, topped with fruit, granola, and coconut flakes.
The second flavor that I tried was the Green Dream.
The Green Dream is their signature green bowl that is an ideal lunch. Made with spinach, mango, banana, organic chia seeds, and fresh coco water, it’s like salad, but colder! Green Dream has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, and helps promote weight loss and a flat belly. For those who prefer a creamier green bowl, they also have Green Soul or Amazing Kale, both of which are made with coconut or almond milk.
The third bowl that I tried, which I can also say my favorite so far is the Cacao Kiss.
Cacao Kiss is an absolutely delicious chocolate bowl that promotes heart health and is a natural antidepressant. Made with banana, strawberries, unsweetened cocoa, nut butter, coconut or almond milk, granola, and coconut flakes, this is basically the healthy dessert of your dreams!
I’m craving tuloy for their smoothie bowl right now!
You what’s the best part there? The Bliss Bowls smoothie bowl starts at only Php 199. If you have tried making smoothie bowls at home, you know na the ingredients can get pricey. Pagod ka pa. Laspag pa blender mo. Php 199 is a very reasonable amount for one bowl. And take note, one bowl is very filling already so it’s really sulit.
You can also upgrade your smoothie bowl to a LOADED for only Php 50. More toppings for you! They also have Limited Edition Bowls and they also serve healthy drinks, coffee and tea to match your bowls!
