How to Make the Perfect Smoothie Bowl

We've all whipped up many a smoothie in our day (just in case, here's how to make the perfect smoothie). But smoothie bowls are a slightly different task.

That's why we developed two tried-and-true smoothie bowls. Go green with spinach, kale, apple, and flaxseed topped with shredded coconut and mango. Or, opt for pomegranate seeds, strawberries, bananas, blueberries, and hemp hearts topped with cacao nibs and sunflower seed butter.
