Breakfast smoothie bowls are all the rage right now for a good reason! These healthy fruit and yogurt bowls are beautiful, healthy, and endlessly customizable ~ they’re gluten free, high protein, and so delicious!
Normally I’m not a smoothie for breakfast type, I’m just not into drinking my meals… but this is an idea I can get behind. With a healthy morning smoothie bowl, loaded with fruits, nuts, and granola, I get to spoon and crunch my way to a balanced and hearty start to the day.
The concept is uber simple – just whiz together your smoothie, spoon it into a shallow bowl, and top it with your favorite stuff. My bowl was rimmed with fresh blackberries pureed with 2% Greek yogurt. I wanted the base to be thick, so I didn’t add any other liquids.
The breakfast smoothie bowl is pretty much it’s own art form. It’s the perfect canvas to play with color, texture, and flavors all at once!
My toppings include strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, tangerine, banana, Spanish peanuts and honey flax granola. But of course this is the ultimate customizable recipe! Use whatever you love, what you have in your pantry, or what looks good at the farmer’s market.
