No Sugar added delicious Mango Pineapple Smoothie Bowl, that too vegan and gluten free with tropical flavors
I am a smoothie person, but haven’t tried a smoothie bowl. You will ask what smoothie bowl is. If smoothie is drinkable then smoothie bowl is spoonable. You have to eat with a spoon. Also it has different textures due to its topping. As a cook who wants to try something new to venture into, I decided to make a mango pineapple smoothie bowl.
If you are cereal bowl person like my son, then you can have healthy breakfast with smoothie bowl. You are free to make smoothie bowl with your favorite fruits and make it extra protein rich with hemp seeds, or antioxidant rich food with ingredients like acai or Goji berries. You can add toasted nuts of your choice. The smoothie bowls are eaten like soup as opposed to being slurped through a straw.
Smoothie bowls have option of making it vegan or gluten free. I made it gluten free and vegan used only mango, pineapple and banana. You can use frozen fruit, however I like to use fresh ones so used that. Then added frozen coconut milk. When mango, pineapple and coconut combine they make a delicious combination. I am a fan of all the ingredients in this bowl such as mango, pineapple and coconut; I am born and brought in the land of coconut where there no single day goes by without the use of coconut in your dish. So our amounts of usage of coconut are also heavy yes no teaspoon tablespoon business it is in whole coconut and half coconut.
After coming here I came to terms with cups, and I buy fresh coconuts and coconut milk. For this smoothie bowl I used thick coconut milk. I wanted my smoothie bowl to be thick so used only ¼ cup coconut milk. Once the smoothie is made then it is transfer to a bowl and topped with fresh mango, pineapple slices, toasted salted hemp seeds and toasted coconut chips. I was planning to have it for my breakfast but it turned out be my brunch after making it and taking the time for pictures. Best part of this smoothie bowl is there is no sugar added; it is a smoothie bowl only with natural sweetness from mango, pineapple and banana and coconut milk. The coconut milk I used is also unsweetened. It is so delicious that you won’t miss any sugar in this smoothie bowl. I think you can see lot of smoothie bowl variation from my kitchen.
