Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Bowl

Is there anything more basic than posting a #PSL smoothie on Thanksgiving? Probably not. But that doesn’t mean this recipe isn’t delicious and worth sharing. 

After all, the pumpkin spice craving in October is real. But so is the insane amount of sugar in those coffee shop drinks. That’s why I’ve come up with a pumpkin spice latte inspired smoothie jam-packed with protein that is both festive and filling!

Whether you’re decorating a bowl for breakfast or taking it ‘to go,’ the ingredients are so simple and the smoothie is super easy to make that I promise you will have this on rotation all season along.

Strawberry Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie Bowls are trending hard these days and it seems like some sort of vegan restaurant serving Açaí bowls is popping up on every corner of Toronto. While you can certainly catch me lining up at The Good Press or posting photos from Bolt Fresh Bar, these Instagrammable breakfasts also cost a pretty penny, which is why I have been experimenting with making my own.

You may remember my Mango Smoothie Bowl post where I teamed up with the most talented Rayna of Rayna Marlee Design to create some easy and delicious smoothie recipes to share with you. Well, we are back at it again, this time with a berry-licious creation you will be sure to love! 

The smoothie base is so simple and you can serve it with any of your favourite toppings. I love to throw on my Superfood Granola for some extra crunch.

MANGO SMOOTHIE BOWL

Although I have a major sweet tooth, I am typically drawn to more savoury flavours at breakfast. If I had the choice between eggs or pancakes, nine times out of ten I will go for the eggs. However, over the past few weeks, I’ve been choosing sweet over salty and that’s all thanks to my new, go-to breakast, the smoothie bowl. If I have just a smoothie in the morning, I get quite hungry for my next meal pretty quickly. But with the extra toppings in the smoothie bowl, such as granola, almond butter or fresh fruit, I am much more satiated and in fact, quite full!
The other day I met up with my good friend, the incredibly talented stylist Rayna, of Rayna Marlee Design, and we came up with a few fresh and yummy ideas for smoothie bowls. One of the best recipes we discovered was this beautiful and bright Mango Smoothie Bowl:
