Just as tasty as they are picture-perfect, smoothie bowls are absolutely worthy of their recent acclaim. Packed with nutrients—i.e. fiber and protein, along with key vitamins and minerals—these creamy concoctions can make for an ideal breakfast that will kick-start your morning.
While the smoothie bowl is a creation entirely your own, its satisfying “base” is typically a thick blend of greens and fruits mixed with milk or water. Top your bowl with nuts or seeds to add a crunchy texture and protein to help stave off hunger.
If the endless possibilities seem overwhelming, or you’re looking to switch up your typical breakfast routine, check out the easy recipe below. Developed by superwoman Molly Sims—model, actress, wife, mother and nutrition enthusiast—this simple combination of healthy fats, filling fiber and essential micronutrients is a perfect start to your day.
