According to Instagram and fitness magazines, smoothie bowls are the latest craze in the health department.

A smoothie bowl is exactly what it sounds like: a smoothie that you eat with a spoon – no straw required.

The most popular ingredient for a smoothie bowl originates from another superfood fad: kale. Health gurus have tried to infuse kale into almost everything, and breakfast is no exception. But if you’re not a fan of the bitter aftertaste of kale, don’t fret. Adding other fruits (strawberries, bananas, pineapples, mangoes) can mask the taste of kale so you won’t even notice it’s there.

Just like an old fashioned smoothie that you would drink from a cup and straw, the possible combinations for a smoothie bowl are endless. However, what makes these bowls equally delicious and picturesque are the toppings.

If you thought you weren’t getting enough out of your vitamin-packed smoothie bowl, sprinkling crushed nuts, shredded coconut, granola, chia seeds, and dried fruit will add even more nutrients to your breakfast.
