Berry Smoothie Bowl

Last newsletter, featured a salmon salad bowl recipe. This week use that bowl for your breakfast smoothie. The trend is to make your smoothie thick enough so you can eat it with a spoon, ditching the straw. The consistency is thick and ice cream-like.

My favorite part is the toppings. All over Pinterest and Instagram, there are pics of beautifully showcased berries, seeds and fruit upon bowls of vibrant hued fruit and veggie blended creations. This recipe is a great starting point, without any fancy powders or tropical hard to find fruits. As more produce comes into season, take advantage of those fresh flavors. You may never look at your bowl of oatmeal the same again.
