Make Your Own Smoothie Bowl

Every year we have a new food craze people just obsess over. From cronuts to cupcakes, we’ve seen it all. Lately, food trends have taken a turn toward the healthier side. Today, these culture obsessions include avocado toast, kale, quinoa, and of course smoothie or açai bowls. Smoothie bowls are taking Instagram by storm because they’re healthy, yummy, and pretty. They’re the perfect breakfast food but taste like dessert – a win-win situation if you ask me! All it is is a thicker smoothie in a bowl with different fruits, granola, nuts, or whatever you want on top of it. You can get so creative while making them and decorate yours however you want. Why spend over $10 on a bowl at a smoothie shop when you can make it at home for much cheaper? Get your together with your friends and make them for breakfast after a sleepover. Have a competition to see who can make the prettiest one! Don’t forget to snap photos! Here are a few easy ways to make this yummy breakfast treat. Your body and Instagram followers will thank you.
