Along with the popularity of healthy smoothies, health buffs are also raving about "spoothies" or smoothies that you can eat with a spoon, as coined by Living Foods Chef Eric Rivkin.
Though smoothies are heavy and filling, some people may tend to feel deprived for simply chugging down their meal. So, eating your smoothie in a bowl with a spoon can be a great way to trick your brain that you're taking an actual meal.
Plus, the healthy bits that you put into the smoothie don't need to be perfectly blended because you're not going to consume it in a slurp. So you can add in crunchy nuts and chunky pieces of fruit.
