Superfood for Breakfast: Avocado, Kale & Raspberry Smoothie Bowl

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, you don’t always have time to sit down and prepare an extensive meal. Sometimes the daily routine only allows you enough time to toss a few ingredients into a bowl while prepping for work, pulling the kids out of bed or taking the dog out before venturing to the office. With an avocado, kale and raspberry smoothie bowl, you’re ready to go in a few minutes while maximizing your antioxidant and vitamins intake for the morning.

To Start

Your starting ingredients are avocado, kale and raspberry. Some people like to line their bowl in three sections, which separates the avocado, kale and raspberry. If you want more of a mixture with every bite though, sprinkle the three in together (or mix it up gently with a spoon). Usually about half a cup to a full cup of each ingredient is enough, but you know your appetite best in the morning. There’s never anything wrong with adding more of these ingredients.

Toppings

You’ll want to add a bit of crunch to your smoothie bowl here. While avocado, kale and raspberries are delicious, the three have a very similar mouth taste to it. Adding a small amount of crunch will take it over the top. This is where you can really let your creative juices flow and even change it up a bit one morning to the next to help keep the bowl fresh and interesting. What you add as a topping will depend on any particular diet you might be following.

Granola is always a favorite and you can’t go wrong sprinkling a bit in. Granola with a touch of cinnamon is delicious as well (not to mention cinnamon is a metabolism booster, which can help you burn more calories throughout the day).

If granola isn’t on hand or you’re not a fan, there are a few other basic options. You can sprinkle on some puffed rice cereal. Just a small amount will add the desired crunch. You can also look towards seeds or nuts, such as sunflower seeds (these are excellent because of the size) or chopped walnuts. Almond slivers are great too. Check the baking aisle at the super market for bags of slivered nuts.
