Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Bowl

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Bowl

Over the last few weeks I’ve found myself in a breakfast rut. I have a tendency to find something I like and then stick with it until it is no longer appealing. My last breakfast love was cinnamon raisin oatmeal. We had a good run, but after a few weeks I woke up craving something new and was inspired to get creative in the kitchen.

After poking around in the cupboards, I pulled out a handful of ingredients and blended up this delicious peanut butter and jelly smoothie bowl. While it is an Instagram worthy breakfast, it ticks all the boxes in my book since it is packed with nutrients and full of flavor. Plus, you can keep things interesting by switching up what frozen berries you use to achieve new flavor combinations during the week. Yum!

The antioxidant packed acai bowl experienced its five seconds of fame on Instagram this year. I have a sneaking suspicion this breakfast item was ordered for its photogenic quality than its health benefits – but I’m not here to judge! Who wouldn’t want a beautifully presented breakfast?

This phenomenon made me brainstorm what other breakfast items I could transform into works of art. I settled on a strawberry smoothie bowl. It follows the same foundation as an acai bowl: pour smoothie in a bowl + sprinkle with delicious toppings. Bonus: the smoothie is a cheerful pink color. (Note: This would be perfect for breakfast on Valentine’s Day!)
