A cool, silky, nutritious smoothie—poured in a bowl and adorned with flavorful toppings—what’s not to love about the smoothie bowl trend? It’s the perfect light breakfast, lunch, or snack. This vegan, gluten-free smoothie bowl calls upon a blend of sweet watermelon and spicy ginger, as well as cashews to give it a creaminess. The nutrient-rich toppings—chia, hemp, coconut, and parsley—give it a health and flavor boost, too.
