Smoothie Bowls, Healthy Like You Expect, But Light as They Should Be

Smoothie bowls have been praised for their nutrient density, yet shunned for their sugar content. Many of these healthy looking bowls are over 600 calories! This one lowers the sugar and calories, keeping all the good stuff. It’s pretty fun to eat too!

I get inexpensive puffed Kamut at the health food store, you could also use puffed brown rice, or puffed wheat although the nutrients will be altered.
