One particularly delicious and appealing combination is this Strawberry Lemonade Bowl. Loaded with citric acid, flavonoids, and antioxidants including vitamin C, the recipe packs fiber and flavor, thereby satisfying bellies and palates without added sugar.
As a refreshing post-treatment snack, spa owners could try halving the recipe and serving it in small bowls. To save time, Weingus recommends freezing made-ahead batches. She also encourages readers to experiment with different combinations of bases and toppings. “A smoothie bowl is a form of creative—and delicious—expression,” she points out. “So don’t be afraid to explore a range of ingredients and flavors!”
