Evolution of the Smoothie
The smoothie is getting a makeover and ditching the straw in favor of the spoon.
Smoothies are best known as "good morning" boosters and post-workout beverages. They’re fun to sip and can be both sweet and nutritious. But the concept of eating a bowl of smoothie for lunch or dinner is a whole new concept to me.
People are now sitting down to feast on “smoothie bowls,” introduced by Robeks Premium Fruit Smoothies. Bloggers have been on top of this trend for a few years now and embraced the concept, referring to the meal as SIAB (Smoothie in a Bowl). But until Robeks, smoothies haven’t been a reason to dine out. The chain store thickened their recipe, added toppings and threw a spoon into the mix. And people are loving it.
