Apple Oat Bowl

Smoothie bowl ideas are priceless in my book. The more you check mine out, and make your own, is the more you’ll get to know how to pair fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and seeds, together to make delicious bowls. Pairing isn’t the easiest thing. I’ve put some ingredients in mine that didn’t go well, consistency or taste wise. These healthy bowls are better when they look good, taste good, and have just the right texture. That can be tricky. Apple oat bowl is great because it has all the wonderful apple and cinnamon flavor, but thick like ice cream.

The best way to get your bowls creamier is to add binding like elements; frozen bananas, mango, pineapple, papaya, avocado, sweet potato, pumpkin, squash, cashews (soaked in water overnight), oats, coconut cream or meat, dates, and I’ve even used brown rice and black/red beans on occasion. Berries, apples, citrus, pears, greens, etc., are a good base, but if you don’t add some of the above foods then it will be tough to get it to that creamy smoothie like texture. I like using a frozen banana in most of my bowls, but also like to add some avocado, dates, oats, and/or cashews to thicken it up.
