Almond oats overload smoothie bowl

Whole food smoothie bowls are fast replacing the ever-popular smoothie, and with good reason. One of the main reasons why smoothie bowls are so popular is that it can feature several superfoods and fruits in their fresh, whole form and you don’t need to put everything in a blender. Plus, it tastes fresher as you can use fruits and grains and for people who are already used to breakfast bowls, it’s more convenient than smoothies. They are also creamier and you can moderate your dairy intake.

Overloaded smoothie bowls are a great protein booster, where you can pick and choose grains, superfoods, fruits and veggies which work for you and select your own toppings. If you plan to bring your mum breakfast in bed this Mother’s Day, ditch the pancakes and make her something healthier and adventurous. Vegan influencer Mhairi Rodger just shared two super easy smoothie bowl recipes which are easy to make and taste great.
