Most mornings I make eggs and oatmeal for breakfast. The combo is easy to whip up and provides a healthy balance of carbs, protein and fat. I also really love fruit, so every few days I like to switch it up and have a delicious smoothie instead. Smoothies are simple to make and so refreshing! Plus, they’re an easy way to add more fruit and protein to your diet.
Lately, I’ve been taking my smoothies to a whole new level by serving them in a bowl instead. A smoothie bowl is made like a smoothie, only slightly thicker and topped with fresh fruit. They are so yummy and fun to make. Kids love them!
Smoothie bowls are so delicious and the best part is you can customize them to your liking. You can make them with a variety of different fruits and flavors of yogurt.
