One of the new breakfast trends that have recently gained popularity are smoothie bowls. If you haven’t heard of these before, it is a mix of a smoothie and toppings that you eat out of a bowl like cereal. These healthy yet delicious bowls are a perfect way to start off spring. With so many delicious combinations to choose from, especially with all of the new fruits in season, the possibilities are endless. Here are two different smoothie bowl recipes to try at home.

Superfood Chocolate Smoothie Bowl by  Sarah Fennel –  bromabakery.com

 INGREDIENTS

  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • ¼ avocado
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons berries (I used blackberries)
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 packet Chocolate Daily Good Greens
  • Toppings of choice! (I used bananas, coconut flakes, chia seeds, Aloha Superfood Chocolate, and blackberries!)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, add more almond milk. Though you do want it to be thick enough to support your toppings!
  2. Pour into wide bowl and top with whatever toppings you’d like.

Remember you can mix and match whatever ingredients you want to make these bowls. Some great spring fruits to use include apricots, limes, mango, oranges, and pineapple. You can try all different kinds of smoothie bowl trends, and eat healthy without giving up a delicious taste.
