2 smoothie bowl recipes that taste like dessert

Even though they look like dessert, these double-chocolate smoothie bowls are actually good for you.

Former model, author and mother-of-three Catherine McCord is a strong believer in the healing power of smoothies — specifically in bowl form. She's stopping by TODAY to share her most satisfying smoothie bowl recipes: a 4-ingredient acaí bowl and a decadent double-chocolate smoothie bowl.

Açaí Smoothie Bowls

Açaí Smoothie Bowls

Why spend $12 to $15 on an açaí bowl at a cafe when you can make your own in just five minutes? Whenever I want something nutrient-dense, refreshing and that tastes like ice cream, I make these. The best part is that you can top them with anything you love and have on hand, so have fun experimenting with toppings!

Double-Chocolate Smoothie Bowls

Even though they look like dessert, these double-chocolate smoothie bowls are actually good for you. The first time I made them for my girlfriend, she thought it was homemade frozen yogurt. When I told her it was made from all fruits and vegetables, she was totally floored. You can enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, as a snack or even for dessert. The best part is that you can make them with regular or dairy free chocolate chips or even cocoa nibs, which have no added sugar.
