You can get really creative and add some awesome toppings for a crunchy texture. Sweet smoothie bowls feel like dessert, and savory smoothie bowls are stacked soups. Scott and I will often make smoothie bowls for movie night or to binge-watch Game Of Thrones, Downtown Abbey, Mad Men, or House Of Cards. (Yes, we are…
