Friday Recipe: Smoothie Bowl

The smoothie bowl, is the latest breakfast trend. I have seen an increase in photos people are posting of their artistically berry and nut decorated smoothie bowls sprinkled with chai, flax or sunflower seeds on Instagram. I decided that it was finally my turn to give the smoothie bowl a whirl.  

Ingredients I used 
two large scoops of Greek yogurt
spoonful of almond butter
handful of blackberries & frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon each of chia seeds, sunflower seeds and chocolate chips

I put greek yogurt, frozen blueberries, blackberries and almond butter into a blender with coconut water to loosen into smoothie liquid form. I then poured smoothie substance into a bowl and decorated the top with blackberries, blueberries, sunflower seeds, chocolate chips and chia seeds. The result was like a cold fruity soup. It was tasty but I think next time I will put less coconut water in and let the chia seeds sit in the smoothie bowl for a couple minutes to let the smoothie thicken out.
This weekend try making your own smoothie bowl for breakfast there are so many different fruit, berry, seed combinations you can really make it your own!
