HORCHATA SMOOTHIE BOWL

Smoothie bowls are great for mixing and matching flavors, and also for cleaning out your refrigerator. The best rule -­of-­thumb is to combine the oat milk base with: a creamy ingredient (like a banana or avocado);; something red, like berries or beet juice (or both);; something green, like chopped spinach;; a plant-­based butter for that added flavor and thickness (particularly good for making a thick smoothie bowl);; ground seeds or powdered superfood;; and, a healthy sweetener. Frozen ingredients are a great way to amp up the milkshake effect without diluting with ice cubes.
