Antioxidant-Packed Blackberry Coconut Smoothie Bowl

If you like to take your time in the morning and savor every bite (or sip) of your breakfast, you’ll definitely be into smoothie bowls. No matter which one you choose, a smoothie bowl for breakfast is the perfect way to kick-start your day, energizing your body with tons of nutrients.

Vegan Blackberry Coconut Smoothie Bowl | HelloGlow.co So what is a smoothie bowl? It’s a normal smoothie, only served into a bowl and ready to be enjoyed spoonful by spoonful. Often they’re a little more substantial than a sippable smoothie and include healthy doses of greens, fruit, milk or yogurt (dairy or vegan versions), healthy fats and a superfood. Learn all about how to make a smoothie bowl—and get dozens of flavor-combination ideas—over at Oh My Veggies.

As berries of all kind are in full season now, packed full of incredible antioxidant and cancer-fighting benefits, I use them in smoothies every day. This blackberry-coconut smoothie bowl has became my favorite breakfast lately.

And, I must say, it’s delicious!
