Our nutritionist Jess always makes some of the prettiest smoothies and smoothie bowls so we asked her for a few tips to help us create our very own superfood smoothie bowls for breakfast!
I know smoothie bowls may seem like an odd thing to try at first, especially if you’re not used to eating your smoothies with a spoon, but I promise you’ll love them! I personally have these most mornings for breakfast because they remind me of a big bowl of ice cream with granola on top!
There’s almost nothing better than the contrast of a thick, creamy, cold smoothie and crunchy toppings like granola, raw cocoa nibs, goji berries or shredded coconut. It’s almost like having an ice cream sundae for breakfast but with way more nutrients!stock up on superfood snacks!
Besides being delicious Jess loves smoothie bowls because they are “extremely filling due to the volume from the raw fruits, greens, ice and frozen fruits”. Keep reading for step by steps to build your own super smoothie bowl!
