To be honest, I had no idea what a “smoothie bowl” was until I saw some people on Instagram holding gorgeous bowls of fruit and calling them smoothie bowls. The concept is pretty simple actually, it’s a thick smoothie that instead of drinking it, it’s eaten with a spoon. Perhaps, what I find most unique about them is the ability to top the bowl with a lot of “toppings.” And if you know me, toppings are the way to my heart.

I want to show you how easy this smoothie bowl is to make in the video below. This chocolate smoothie bowl has lots of healthy vitamins and minerals and of course fiber from the Sunsweet prunes. Plus, it satisfies my craving for something sweet and chocolaty all while packing a lot of nutrition.

As you can see in the video, I reduced the sugar by cutting out some fruit and using low-sugar toppings like seeds. It’s nutritious foods like this bowl that support my journey to eat healthy. As many of you know, I am busy all the time but I care a lot about my health and nutrition because without a healthy body and mind I can’t produce the results I want in life as well as stay healthy to enjoy life with my family.

Many of you have asked me, how do you get your smoothies so smooth? How do you find the time to make them in the morning? Well, I’ll tell you my secret. I often place everything in the blender, with the milk first then the harder to blend items like nuts at the bottom to soften up overnight; and in the morning, all I do is pull the blender out of the fridge and blend. Boom! Instant deliciousness.

After my morning workout, I’m not usually looking to eat a big breakfast so a smoothie bowl is perfect to get me going. I know that refueling my body and providing myself with fiber and protein in a meal will help me stay full longer and give me the energy I need to stay focused the rest of the day.

Prunes are my go-to ingredient to add more fiber to my day. I’ve also used them in my High Fiber Breakfast Muffins and Chicken with Prunes and Sage for dinner. I hope you enjoy this delicious smoothie bowl as much as I do!

    The recipe looks great and I bet It’ll taste good too. I was just wondering though if I could blend up the ingredients at night and store in the freezer, if it’ll taste just fine??

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      If you store it in the freezer overnight it will freeze solid; but within 30 minutes or so, it will be the consistency of a smoothie bowl. I freeze leftovers often, so you could freeze it and then take it out.Enjoy!
