Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie bowls are trending big time on Instagram at the moment and its not hard to see why. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but they’re packed with nutritional goodness and are a great way to start your day. Forget about boring cereal. Smoothie bowls are the way to go.

I love them because you can customize them anyway that you want. You can have a rainbow fruit extravaganza or a simple basic bowl topped with some chia seeds and a banana. Anything goes! Below are some of my favorite recipes :
