Smoothie Bowl

Learn to make this easy, delicious, and super nutritious breakfast.

Este smoothie bowl es un delicioso y saludable desayuno lleno de frutas y superfoods

The second week of my first #VeganChallenge begins today, and one of the breakfast recipes I’ve included in this week’s menu is this colorful smoothie bowl.

 

I love having fruit smoothies for breakfast, and sometimes add some veggies into them as well (especially leafy greens), and/or superfoods.

Eating food in the morning is the best thing we can do since fruit must be eaten on an empty stomach an without mixing it with other foods. When you wake up your body is free from any other foods so this is the best time to properly digest fruits and reap the most benefits from them.

I used to think that drinking a smoothie out of a bowl, with a spoon, was pretty bizarre and useless. But as soon as I tried my first smoothie bowl at my local juice bar here in Brooklyn, I was hooked not only on how pretty and delicious they are, but also on the fact that even though it feels like you’re having a super decadent dessert when you eat them, you’re actually having your healthiest meal of the day!

Here you have the recipe I shared with the ladies that joined the #VeganChallenge. It was created by my mom, who is a cooking genius, so rest assured that it’s super tasty!
