These grapefruit smoothie bowls are a refreshing treat full of citrus flavor! Totally vegan and great for a healthy breakfast or snack.
Smoothie bowls are definitely a health trend I could never get on board with. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that juiceries are able to change $15 for one small size?
With so many added ingredients, there is definitely a “health halo” around those colorful, fruity dishes. Fruit is natural sugar of course, but it is still sugar that will not keep me full for more than an hour.
However, smoothie bowls are refreshing! So I’ve come to treat them as more of a snack I make myself when I am in the mood for something that will quench my thirst and provide a decent amount of vitamins. Enter: this tangy grapefruit smoothie bowl!
How to Make the Best Grapefruit Smoothie
The secret here is to cut that tart flavor with frozen strawberries. They help contribute to this lovely pink hue and brighten up all other flavors. Frozen banana and a few teaspoons of maple syrup lend a hand in the sweetness department. You could also substitute a Medjool date!
Just for fun, I scooped out the flesh from my grapefruit instead of segmenting so I could use the peels as little bowls. This is 100% optional–in fact, this taste just as tasty out of a regular drinking glass!
How to Make a Filling Smoothie
Almond butter helps the satiation factor, I’d imagine cashew butter would work too. I do not recommend peanut butter, as it has too strong of a flavor.
Feel free to get creative with toppings and just use whatever tropical fruit and nuts you have on hand. I hope you enjoy these citrus-y smoothies; please let me know in a comment on Instagram and what you think! Serves two generously.Print
