If you were to put all of the choices for food dishes in one place, the possibilities would become nearly endless. With the internet, we now have the entire world’s library of food recipes at your literal fingertips, but in the end, you still have to make a choice based on what you might be looking for. If you’re trying to make a healthy choice, you might want to go lighter, which is easily done in a smoothie, but what if you want something more substantial? The answer could come in the form of a smoothie bowl.
Benefits of The Avocado Kiwi Bowl
Not only do you get the light, easily digestible aspects of a smoothie, but you can also sit down with a satisfying meal without having to feel weighed down all day afterwards. Avocado is well known for its positive effect on the brain, and its heavy amount of omega 3 fatty acids. These can help to reduce the chances of developing cancer because it can fight the free radicals that cause cellular anomalies. Kiwi gives you a heavy dose of vitamins and minerals that your body needs to heal, as well as relaxing you, as well as helping to improve digestion.
Bananas are an excellent source of essential nutrients, as well as aiding in digestion. They are a great source of fiber and they add a wonderfully pleasing and thick texture to any smoothie.
Chia seeds are well known for their heavy amount of proteins, so this will pair very well with many of the other health promoting ingredients of this smoothie bowl.
