You know the old adage, “you are what you eat?” Well today, that could not be more true. Smoothies are a weekly part of my breakfast routine, and as delicious as fruit smoothies are, they’re all sugar, and unfortunately not the best way to start the day. By adding a little protein to this very berry smoothie bowl, you’ll get your nutrients, and you’ll enjoy it too! Most days I make the traditional smoothie in a glass and sometimes top it with homemade granola, but every once in a while I like to be fancy and put it in a bowl!
The best part about this smoothie bowl is the toppings!!
You can get as crazy as you want. If you ever surf the hashtag #smoothiebowl on Instagram or Pinterest, you’ll see some really beautiful bowls out there. I’ve always looked at them in awe, but then realized how easy they are to create! Especially with all the cookie cutters I have in my house.
I kept it somewhat simple here, and adding a spoonful each coconut flakes, chia seeds for added nutrients, fiber, and protein, and of course extra fruit to make it look beautiful, but I cut out dragon fruit with a little star cutter, and cut the kiwi in a beautiful design. You’d be surprised how easy it is! If you watch this video, you’ll learn just how easy!
I kept the strawberry leaves on for a little extra natural effect, and kept all the fruit on one side of the bowl. You certainly don’t have to decorate it this way, but it’s just that much more beautiful when you do!
