Ya know... when it gets warmer out I absolutely love love LOVE making smoothie bowls for meals. They're refreshing, flavorful, and so beautiful, but it's definitely easy to over (or under) do it if you don't have the right formula for your smoothie. I find that the key to making a meal-worthy smoothie bowl is BALANCE. Just like we try to include all the food groups on our plates at mealtime, the same is true for smoothie time, especially if we intend to enjoy the smoothie as a meal. Check out what I mean with this super simple, balanced, smoothie bowl recipe below. (Pst... it's dairy-free!)

Check out this ONE-POT CHILI recipe I know you're gonna have on repeat because even the menfolk LOVE it!
