There's just something about starting your day off by eating fresh produce. It's almost as if the freshness wakes me up more. That's why I'm a HUGE fan of smoothies for breakfast in the AM. But if you've been on Pinterest lately (I have) maybe you've noticed the smoothie BOWL.
I keep seeing smoothie bowls - everywhere. And let me tell you - they. are. beautiful. Good food should be beautiful, right? So, I had to try one. And I'm happy to report I was not disappointed. :-)
I topped mine with chia seeds, chocolate (for breakfast?!? Yes, please!), coconut, mint and yes, even more raspberries. Because one cup of raspberries apparently isn't enough for me.
One of my favorite things about smoothies is being able to sneak in a ton of veggies - I'll be up front - this has no veggies. Unless you count the mint. Which I don't. :-) Having said that, there's no reason you couldn't throw some spinach in - it just won't have that pretty pink color. But sometimes a girl just wants to eat something pink, so no veggies today. I'll eat a salad at lunch. :-)
What do you think? Have you tried a smoothie bowl yet? Give this one a go and let me know what you thought of it!
