At last! A breakfast post where I describe what I actually ate for BREAKFAST (rather than dinner). This smoothie bowl was inspired by my semi-recent trip to Australia where you could buy acai bowls at almost every other corner. Making them seemed pretty straightforward so I couldn’t justify paying $10 for one. As such, here’s my attempt that definitely costs less than $10 and it comes together in 3 easy steps:
INSTRUCTIONS: Step 1, blend up your favourite smoothie ingredients (I like a frozen banana, mango, pineapple, and spinach blend with a scoop of protein powder), hold back on the liquid so that it errs on the thicker side. Step 2, pour it into a bowl. Step 3, top it with fresh fruit, granola, nuts, or seeds. Above, I used banana, goji berries, frozen blueberries, granola, sunflower seeds, and some apple slices. If you need a little more direction on assembling a smoothie bowl, this is a great post over at Oh My Veggies.
I have a smoothie for breakfast (almost) every single day, so dumping it into a bowl with some extra toppings was a nice way to switch things up. It’s SO filling and SO nutritious, it certainly beats a bowl of yogurt and granola any day! Plus, it feels like you’re eating ice cream for breakfast so what’s not to love? Confession, I also eat this for dinner sometimes… old habits die hard.
