A quick and nutritious breakfast is key to building a morning routine that sets you up for a great day.  Smoothie bowls are the latest trend in morning meals.  Part smoothie, part bowl of fruit and granola, a smoothie bowl delivers the best of both worlds and is quite lovely to look at as well. The key to a great smoothie bowl is a thick, flavourful smoothie base and a rainbow of toppings.  It is a choose-your-own-adventure style meal and we just love them! Smoothie: <ul> <li>1 1/2 Cups frozen fruit/berries</li> <li>1 banana</li> <li>2 Tbsp peanut (or other nut) butter</li> <li>1/2 Cup water</li> <li>handful icecubes (optional)</li> </ul> Toppings: <ul> <li>Fresh fruit (berries, kiwi, bananas, citrus, grapes)</li> <li>Dried fruit (cranberries, raisins, cherries, goji berries)</li> <li>Seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, chia)</li> <li>Nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, cashews)</li> <li>Cacao nibs</li> <li>Hemp hearts</li> <li>Coconut</li> <li>Granola</li> </ul> In a blender on high speed, combine the smoothie ingredients until thick and smooth. Pour into a bowl and top with your favourite blend of toppings. Enjoy!
