Spring Smoothie Bowls to Brighten Your Day

Stuck at home? Same. Sure, there are plenty of things we can’t really do right now, but there is time to do some other wonderful, slightly indulgent things… like make smoothie bowls.

Hear us out: smoothie bowls are the breakfast that you always think about making (thanks to enviable Instagram food bloggers) but never actually get around to making–because nobody has time for that.

But now, things are a little different. Life is still busy, but in different ways, and all three meals will be consumed in the comfort of your own home. So we think it’s the perfect time to indulge in a delicious, healthy, feel good breakfast (or snack!). It’s also a great way to get fruits and leafy greens (high in antioxidants and essential nutrients) into your diet, which will only support your immune health. Here are our favorite recipes:

Blending tip: If you have one, use a high-powered blender or food processor to achieve a smooth, creamy texture. If you’re blending up leafy vegetables in a green smoothie, stick them in the blender first (followed by liquid) to ensure the foliage is properly broken down.
