Springtime Green Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are a great idea for a morning meal when you crave for all the fruity flavors.  There are a lot of advantages to having a smoothie bowl. It is healthy, fruity, nutritious, creamy, and satisfying. It is quick. All you need is 5 minutes to make a bowl of creamy goodness to start your day. Bananas and apples extend a natural sweetness to the whole meal without the addition of too much sugar or simple syrup. Nuts give vitamins and proteins, fruits are sweet, rich in vitamins and fiber, paired with a protein source makes it a whole complete nourishment in a simple bowl. Now, who would refuse to have a creamy refreshing bowl looking at the easiness of making it? I decided to use avocado and some greens too.  There are two reasons for adding the greens in this smoothie bowl. My friend Mrs. SS shared her homegrown spinach (she is nice to share her spring harvest:-)) The other reason is, the microgreens are from my trials of growing them. So, all the pluses for adding them. The smoothie bowl has a green color, perfectly matching with everything green around for springtime. And hence, named it springtime green smoothie bowl. It tasted good too. No doubt. One of the picky eaters in our home gave a thumbs-up sign. So, Yeah! smoothies and smoothie bowls are the way when you want to sneak in a couple of veggies to your picky eaters.
