I could no longer resist the siren song of the gorgeous smoothie bowls I kept seeing on Instagram (and pinning on Pinterest) – I HAD to make my own! Honestly, at first I thought they seemed like an epic waste of time but one lazy morning I felt like slowing things down even more so I assembled a pair of smoothie bowls for Hubby and I and it was such a perfect breakfast. We chatted as we picked out toppings and lazily ate them, watching the lake. It’s a step up from the layered smoothies we’ve been enjoying. Starting a day with a pretty (and delicious!) breakfast put me in such a good mood. So now I’m hooked! I made this smoothie bowl for SoFabFood so you can catch the recipe (and my trick for keeping the toppings from sinking) over there.
There’s something about having a delicious breakfast waiting for me that makes dragging myself out of bed so much easier. I need that extra motivation these days because I’ve been so swamped with work and life that some days I kind of need that kick in the pants to get moving! I’ll spill the beans soon, but right now my tired little brain is still processing everything… but a little bit of chocolate granola seems to help, haha.
I just ordered a secret smoothie bowl ingredient to make the most lakehouse-worthy smoothie bowl imaginable and I can’t wait to show off my creations! Breakfast is definitely starting to be my favorite meal of the day.
Have you tried this food craze yet? If you’re feeling tempted, there are a ton of great books with delicious smoothie bowl recipe ideas:
Yum! Might be a nice idea to make one for Mom this weekend…
