Anyone with an Instagram account couldn’t possibly have missed the fact that smoothie bowls are everywhere. At some point, the internet collectively decided that smoothies were best enjoyed in a bowl, rather than a glass. A plausible explanation could lie in the fact that smoothie bowls are easily topped off with Insta-friendly lashings of fruit, berries and nuts to create an utterly photogenic image of a healthy vegan breakfast -something that isn’t as easy with a glass.
I’ve been documenting my smoothie bowl experiments on Instagram (guilty!) and when Vilda’s editor asked me to put together my top three to share with you, the choice was a no-brainer: from creamy buttermilk and colourful classic flavours to a quirky unicorn bowl, here are my most-loved breakfast recipes. The best bit? They’re the easiest recipes on earth. All it takes is a blender and some yummy plant-based ingredients.
Blend 2 frozen bananas, 1 cup of frozen strawberries, 1 cup of plant-based milk, 1 tbs chia seeds and 15 g vegan protein powder (optional) until creamy and top with fresh berries, mini kiwis, mulberries and granola!
