A smoothie bowl recipe that is packed full of nourishing and beautifying properties. Perfect for lunch, snack or a healthy dessert.
Smoothie bowls have been all over Instagram recently. They are definitely the hottest breakfast trend right now. I love smoothie bowls as you can add any toppings you like, to make it a more substantial meal. Perfect for breakfast or as a snack. Also Smoothie bowls are filling, nutrient-packed, and most importantly, utterly delicious!
The first time I tried a smoothie bowl was on holiday in Spain. I had an epic Acai bowl with all the toppings and I was hooked!
Smoothie bowls are made more thicker then traditional smoothies, making it easier to eat with a spoon. This recipe, is vegan, gluten free and contains lots of nourishing super foods to make you glow and feel amazing.
In this case, I topped the smoothie bowl with coconut, banana and home made granola. You can find my home made granola recipes below:
For this recipe I used:
