Simple & Sweet
Breakfast is by far the most important, not to mention my favorite meal of the day! Without breakfast I would never be able to get through my busy schedule. With that being said, I know that although Southern California’s lifestyle can tend to be laid back it can also be hard to take the time to make breakfast every morning, especially when your in a rush. So I came up with a solution… a recipe that’s not only healthy and delicious but simple and quick as well!
I like drift away from my everyday morning breakfast routine once and a while, so I decided to make my own version of a vegan smoothie bowl.
Quick Tip: This recipe is meant to be quick and easy so I don’t use exact measurements with every ingredient, I use “small handfuls”. (You can usually never go wrong with eyeballing fruits and veggies!)
- 1 small handful baby spinach
- Splash of almond milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
- 1 handful of blueberries
- 1 handful of blackberries
- 1 small banana
- 1 scoop of ice
1. Place smoothie ingredients into a blender or food processor until a creamy consistency
2. If too thick add more almond milk
3. If too thin add more banana!
For the toppings your welcome to add your favorite fruits, nuts or seeds. I LOVE to use dry oats because they tend to soak up the smoothie bowl and fill me up for a lot longer then any other topping! I also added blueberries because they are my favorite berry and they were really fresh!
Quick and easy topping ideas:
1. Dry oats
More extravagant toppings:
- Shredded Coconut
- Sliced Fruit
- Chia or Teff Seeds
- Agave (for added sweetness)
Simple ingredients, easy processes & a delicious dish! What more could you ask for?
