Smoothie bowls are all the rage right now, and why not? They're a delicious, aesthetically-pleasing way to eat your smoothie rather than drink it! Plus, you won't have to blend up all the fruit and instead enjoy each one separately. This beautiful recipe calls for lots of fruit, some yogurt, almond milk, chia seeds and coconut for a tasty breakfast you'll make again and again. One serving contains 12 grams of fiber, 16 grams of protein and only 280 calories!
Pro tip: This recipe makes two servings. If you're saving the second portion for the next morning, re-blend the smoothie mixture with one cup of ice to thicken it again.
