Simple Healthy Breakfast: Smoothie Bowls

Breakfast is, by far, my favorite meal of the day. But, I also seemingly prefer an extra 15 minutes of sleep every morning, over spending that time on crafting my breakfast. So, unfortunately, I don’t really get to fully enjoy the wonderous meal that is breakfast until the weekend rolls around. During the week, I love blending up my quick and easy smoothies. Once the weekend hits, I step my smoothie game up to another level: smoothie bowls. It’s basically like eating ice cream but healthier. And, oh are they delicious. Plus, eating a smoothie with a spoon is so much more fun than drinking it out of a glass.

The toppings are what make this meal a bit more hardy than usual. It’s another delicious way to add fresh fruits and veggies, along with superfoods to your diet. Here’s one of my favorite smoothie bowl recipes below…

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup coconut water
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple

Step 2: Add toppings of choice.
