Recipe: Tropical Detox Smoothie Bowl
Nothing beats a delicious, thirst-quenching smoothie in the middle of summer. And nothing beats a thick smoothie poured into a bowl with lots of toppings. Unfortunately, most smoothies sold in markets or fast-food chains are made with fruit juices aka processed fruit mixed with sugar and preservatives. No need to ignore that smoothie craving because this nutrient-packed, healthy detox smoothie recipe will satisfy it! The tropical ingredients will leave your tummy smiling as the pineapple is full of bromelain which helps with tissue inflammation and the lemon is alkaline which helps prevent heart burn and stomach indigestion.
To make a smoothie into a “ bowl,” the key is thickness. So before you add extra almond milk, give it a chance to blend up. I love pouring it into a bowl because it feels like I’m eating something hearty. And of course, toppings make it interesting so get creative and have fun. Go ahead, plunge that spoon in to your tropical protein-packed smoothie bowl and smile away knowing you treated your body right!
