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.
