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!

Using a hand blender whizz up the fruit and then pour it into the bowl before adding the other half. If you want to be super healthy you can add a few extras like the almonds, pumpkin seeds and goji berries I sprinkled on mine - I promise they don't taste too bad!

And that's it! It's such an easy way to pack in as many of your 5 a day as possible and it tastes pretty good too. Do you think you'll be making any smoothie bowls this summer? Feel free to share any recipes you might have below in the comments!
