Rainbow Smoothie Bowl

A kaleidoscope of fruit combine with Greek yogurt to make a delicious and colorful spoon-able smoothie. 
Rainbow Smoothie Bowls are a fun way to eat the rainbow!

I hope you have enjoyed the first two smoothies in my #LnCSmoothieSaturdays series: Dark Chocolate Green Smoothie and Strawberry Watermelon Smoothies. Today's smoothie is both drinkable and spoon-able. #ToddlerLnC had as much fun with this smoothie as I did.

I picked some delicious fruit and it really makes a great presentation. She mostly drank the smoothie in her sippy cup, while I ate both the fruit and smoothie. Whether you use a spoon or straw, it is equally yummy and perfect when you want a more filling smoothie option.

As a mom, I want my daughter to be healthy and eat good things. We try to eat the rainbow every day. Some days are easier than others, and sometimes she does have grilled cheese, chicken nuggets or pasta. Most days, she actually has lots of fruits and veggies. Once she can actually understand what eating the rainbow means, I will create a fun "Eat the Rainbow" chart for her, so we can track our fruit and veggies every day. It's a good way to get kids involved with eating healthier items.

You can customize your smoothie bowl however you like - the sky is the limit. Topping choices are also endless - fruit, nuts, coconut, seeds - anything and everything can top smoothie bowls. One of my smoothie bowl tricks is to use Stonyfield Greek Yogurt, since it is thicker than regular yogurt, as well as frozen fruit. When I blend Greek Yogurt with frozen fruit the smoothie is almost to the point of frozen yogurt - and totally delicious.
