If you’re on Instagram at all, you have probably come across one, or twenty, stunning #smoothiebowl shots. Or at least 5 if you follow me (@gerihirsch). This is for good reason other than likes; making a smoothie is one of the best ways to add an incredible amount of nutritional value to your daily diet. You can sneak in loads of super foods, greens, berries, vitamins and minerals. If you have time, smoothie bowls are a great way to add a fun textural element and a lot of creativity.
This recipe is one of my favorites for a great energy boost and bright, glowing skin. Here’s how to make a smoothie bowl and if you’d like to watch a video on it, head right this way:
