I don’t know about you guys, but smoothie bowls are my ULTIMATE go-to during the hot summer months!

Ever since visiting Bali, I’ve been obsessed with smoothie bowls. They’re everywhere there. Nalu Bowls is my favourite café – any other Nalu Bowls fans out there?!


Not only are they beautifully present and perfect for the ‘Gram (who are we kidding, if you didn’t take a picture, did you even have one?), but they’re super nutritious too.


I started practising my smoothie bowls as soon as I got home. From experience – they’re not as easy as they look! It’s taken me some time to perfect my skills, but I thought I’d share what I’ve learnt for anyone else interested:

 

1.    Freeze your bananas


Have you ever heard of nice cream? This is basically frozen bananas that once blended, gives you a thick, creamy texture, just like ice cream itself.

 

I’d also freeze other fruits too – dragon fruits, blueberries, strawberries, papaya, mango etc. If your freezer space allows, try to freeze them all in individual pieces otherwise you’ll be stuck hacking away at a cluster of frozen fruit – not fun nor time efficient…

  

2.    Use a frozen pulp


This is a new addition I’ve started incorporating to my smoothie bowls to give it an extra nutrient kick. I use the brand Asopie – they have a collection of pure, super fresh superfoods from the heart of the Amazon rainforest.

 

3.    Use as little liquid as possible


This was probably my biggest eureka moment when I realised the less liquid the better.

 

For normal smoothies you add around half a cup to a cup-size of liquid. You just have to be patient, going into the blender to move around your fruits if you don’t have a fancy blender (I use a Nutribullet).

 

4.    Make your own granola!


It sounds a lot more complicated than it is, but it’s so easy.


You basically mix your favourite nuts and seeds with whole-rolled oats (I use gluten-free), melted coconut oil, maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon. Whack that into the oven until golden brown and voila! I add coconut shavings towards the end and you can also add dried fruits as soon as it comes out the oven.

 

This is a perfect topping to add a little more substance to keep you fuller for longer.

 

5.    Chuck in a bunch of nutritious additions


Blend it all up or top off your bowl.

 

I sometimes blend spirulina for colour most of the time, and also blend in maca powder, chia seeds, flax seeds, acai, cinnamon etc.

 

For toppings, I add extra seeds, goji berries, extra sliced fruits, and usually a hefty dollop of almond butter.

 

What’s your favourite ingredients to incorporate into your smoothie bowls? Do you have any tips and tricks? Please share – I’d love to know!

我本身就是有濕疹,皮膚也是屬於比較容易起乾疹、過敏的,我們家兩位寶寶呢也是一樣,天氣一轉變,即便只是下個雨或曬了一下太陽,濕度溫度升降,皮膚也可能出現過敏痕癢😥之前也有給他買一些專門給濕疹嬰兒用的洗護產品,可是夏天用都有點太油膩,好像一直不吸收,悶著皮膚,反而會讓他起紅疹。 不同品牌都試了一下,覺得最合適還是特福芬家的,成份天然溫和之餘,質地更清爽。 洗髮露里添加了有機金盞花,而沐浴露和潤膚乳就加入了有機的橄欖油,都是有效舒緩鎮靜皮膚的成份。整個系列都帶一點淡香,不會太濃,不用擔心香精的問題,而且質地偏流質狀一點,起泡不多,應該是沒加起泡劑,更能呵護寶寶的柔嫩皮膚。 洗得頭皮乾淨,髮質柔順,即便不小心洗進眼睛也不會刺激。 沐浴露也是一樣洗得乾淨,仍然保留皮膚水份,洗完之後再搽潤膚乳。它的潤膚乳比其他同類型產品更好推開吸收,吸收後會有薄薄一層油分,為皮膚鎖住水份,但不是油膩膩的感覺,摸起來還是乾爽柔軟的👍🏼 用了大概三個月,覺得寶寶們的皮膚有變得比較穩定,雖然還是不時有過敏的狀況出現,但比起之前要輕微多了,不會癢到一直抓,也很快消失🥳👏🏼有時候我洗完手也會搽一搽,跟護手霜一樣...
