DIY: Insta-worthy smoothie bowl!

If you're a big user of Instagram like myself then I'm sure you're no stranger at all to the 'smoothie bowl'. The bowls, full of (you guessed it) smoothie, often feature toppings such as nuts or seeds alongside the remaining unblended fruit, making for a snack that's equally as nutritious as it is insta-worthy. Creating your own smoothie bowl really is as simple as picking out the fruit you want to blend and then whizzing it all together (before arranging it so it looks pretty for social media, obviously) but for anyone who wants a mini step by step I've thrown a super basic one in below:

Firstly, pick your fruit, cut it all up for blending and then put half of that to one side. For this smoothie bowl I went for strawberries, blueberries, nectarine and banana. I also added a bit of vegan yogurt for extra flavour!

21st birthday... and a return to blogging

Oh hi, still remember me? Don't worry, I don't blame you in the slightest if you don't. Obviously I've been away for a significant amount of time due to various life circumstances (well, actually just one job that completely consumed every inch of my existence) but I recently decided it was a great time for me to have a fresh start (having just graduated and all that) so I moved my life back home ready to start all over again. I'll have to admit I'm currently struggling downsizing from Manchester big city life to being back where I started out but on the plus side it means I actually have some time to invest in my little corner of the internet again!
