Smoothie Bowls

Breakfast is the best part of the day. Seriously. There are so many delicious options to choose from! Leftover cherry pie, for example, is an awesome breakfast item (just maybe not the healthiest). 

I made my first smoothie bowl shortly after declaring that smoothie bowls are, "so pointless, that's why they give you smoothies with a straw." And then I tried one. And it's so much better than a regular smoothie. It's almost like you're eating ice cream for breakfast, except with a smoothie bowl, you can give yourself a high five for eating healthy instead of questioning your life choices. 

This recipe is just one of about a billion different combinations you can choose from. The formula is easy: your favorite smoothie + topped with the ingredients you also blended up. This makes it easy to get a taste of every delicious ingredient. 

So if you want to make a mango smoothie, do it! Save a few slices of mango and top the bowl with it. How about a chia seed pineapple mint smoothie? Yep, just top with the complementary ingredients. 

Have fun with your breakfast! Thanks for stopping by! Recipe is below the photos.


Ingredients for Very Berry Smoothie:
Note: I make this in my mini Magic Bullet blender, so the ratios are just eyeballed. 

Mixed, frozen berries (appx. 1 cup)
Unsweetened coconut milk
Almond butter (appx. 1 Tbspn)
Chia seeds (appx. 2 tsps)
Toasted, unsweetened coconut (appx. 2 tTbspn)

1. Blend ingredients together until smooth. 
2. Pour into a large bowl and top with desired toppings.
3. Be sure to carefully place "heavier" ingredients, like a strawberry, as it might sink to the bottom if just plopped on top. I also like to drizzle some almond butter over everything to finish it off.
4. Once you're happy with you're little piece of breakfast art, dig in!
