OK, I’m ready for summer. Colorado has been doing this weird on and off snowing thing and I’m fully ready for warmer weather and sunny days. Now that the house is FINALLY done and we’re all moved in, N and I are focusing on our eating an exercise habits. I know, I know, New Years was 4 months ago. But better later than never right?
It’s been so easy to skip breakfast as we get adjusted to our longer commutes that I needed an easy recipe that could be whipped up quickly in the morning and prepped over the weekend. Step in this DELICIOUS Hawaiian Greens Smoothie Bowl! It’s packed full of greens, fiber, fruit, and can be topped with dried fruit and granola to make the ultimate beachy breakfast.
My favorite thing smoothie bowls is that you can prep them in advance. I like to cut and portion out the ingredients the night before so I can pop them in the blender and make my smoothie bowl in under two minutes in the morning. You could make the smoothie in advance and store in the fridge but for the freshest flavor and maximum nutrients, I would blend right before you’re ready to eat in the morning.
Of course, you could just have the smoothie plain. But the best part about smoothie *bowls* is the variation in textures you get from the toppings. I topped this bowl with dried cranberries, golden berries, and mangoes from Made in Nature (available at Sprouts Farmers Market), desiccated coconut, and chamomile flowers. Some of my other favorite toppings for this bowl include agave nectar, chia seeds, sliced almonds, macadamia nuts, granola, and sliced kiwis.
This smoothie bowl isn’t limited to breakfast times either. Because it’s packed with greens, oats, and fruit, it is pretty filling. In fact, I’m totally eating it for dinner while writing this post… 😀 who says smoothie bowls are for breakfast only?
