Smoothie bowls are a quick and easy breakfast option packed full of many of the ingredients you likely already have on hand. Smoothie bowls are essentially thicker, more nutrient dense smoothies, topped with a variety of fruits, nuts, seeds, granola and/or dried fruit. Our smoothie bowl goes a step further by adding probiotics to support a healthy gut microbiome. 

Your gastrointestinal (GI) tract is home to the human microbiome, the genome of all our microbes. The human microbiome is composed of a community of bacteria that serves a critical function in developing immunity for defense against pathogens; production of short-chain fatty acids essential in energy metabolism; and synthesis of vitamins and fat storage. The microbiome is considered an essential organ of the body, without which we could not function correctly.
