Matcha Lime Protein Smoothie Bowl

I’ve been eyeing smoothie bowl pics and recipes for a while now… Kind of curious and kind of confused, ya know? Is it a smoothie? Is it a soup? A pudding? What makes it so different than a regular smoothie?

Turns out I was overthinking it.

Basically it’s just a smoothie. In a bowl. The only real difference is a “smoothie bowl” is thicker than a regular smoothie.

Since I’m totally down with anything thick, creamy, and pudding-y, I’m completely on board with smoothie bowls! Turns out, I’m a smoothie bowl pro – I’m always adding wayyy too many thick ingredients to my smoothies and often end up eating them with a spoon anyway. All I’ve been missing is the bowl and pretty toppings!

This smoothie bowl is completely inspired by Oh She Glows’s fantastic recipe. I tweaked the proportions to suit my tastes and added my favorite protein to up the nutritional punch. (I also doubled the recipe when I made it; however, the following recipe is for one serving.)
