Smoothie Bowls Around the Front Range

Frozen, fruity satisfaction to refresh and revitalize your summer days.

Coloradans are often earnest health trend followers and creators, especially when it comes to quick, tasty nourishment (looking at you, Bobo’s Oat Bars). It’s no surprise, then, that more than a dozen restaurants built in the Centennial state prominently feature smoothie bowls on their menus.

The kid-friendly bowls include ingredients like acai, banana, chia, nut butters, and greens. Some even boast dragon fruit or spirulina (blue-green algae understood for brain health benefits). Families in need of a cooling summer treat—with added fiber, vitamins, and minerals—can snag a PB&J-inspired, leafy green-packed, or bright blue tropical smoothie bowl.

If added sugars are a concern, ask to see a list of bowl ingredients (added sugars may be called Turbinado); or consider having the kids split a bowl if the portions are quite large.
