Hello Beautiful People.
I hope you're all well and keeping sane during this tricky time. As we're currently stuck in quarantine I'm sure most of you are getting fed up of making food at home and probably missing your favourite brunch time spots- I know I am. So, with this in mind, I've decided to start a new series on my blog called Brunch with me, where we can have brunch at home together. I'll be sharing different brunch recipes that I've either tried for the first time or already love. So to start this series off, I've decided to share an easy brunch idea of a smoothie bowl. Smoothie bowls are my all-time favourite breakfast/brunch food; it's tasty, easy to make and healthy too. So let's get started...
B r u n c h W i t h M e
If like me you're not the biggest brunch eater and would like something light to fill the spot (more room for mimosas), then smoothie bowls are perfect!
A l l y o u n e e d i s -
Frozen Fruits - This helps with the thickness of the bowl
Fruit Juice(s) or Coconut Milk
Fruits for garnish
Granola or any other preferred dried topping such as chia seeds, crumble, dried fruits etc.
This recipe is an easy, everyday smoothie bowl. You can always make ones with more ingredients such as protein powders, nut-based butter etc.

Pour your fruit juice into your blender cup or bottle, not too much, it all depends on how thick you want it to be and how much fruit you're putting in. You can also add oat, almond or coconut milk for different types of bowls- I usually like to add coconut milk in my smoothies but it's all down to your preference.

Add your fruits, for this smoothie I've added frozen strawberries, blueberries, mangos and pineapples. Blend it up!

Once everything is perfectly blended together, check the consistency of the smoothie- you want it to be thick... so thick that it's a struggle to come out of the blender. Once you're happy with the smoothie and it tastes up to your standards, pour it out into a bowl and then add your toppings. I've added chia seeds and plain granola to mine and paired it with some fresh blueberries. As I said before you can always add different toppings such as flax seeds, goji berries, almond butter etc.

And there you have guys, a quick and easy brunch-time meal!
I hope you enjoyed my first 'brunch with me' post and let me know if you've tried making a bowl in the comments below. I enjoy making all kinds of smoothie bowls so I've also attached below some other bowls I've made that you can try!
This bowl was similar to the above bowl but instead of using tropical juice I used pineapple juice instead and added coconut milk too. I also blended summer berries with mangos and pineapples.
This one is one of my favourite bowls- it has coconut milk, pineapple juice, frozen mangoes, pineapples and bananas- tasted exactly like a pina colada cocktail without the rum haha. On top, I added Sliced Bananas, Granola, Chia Seeds, Blueberries and Physalis.
Lastly, my green smoothie bowl- consisted of apple juices, pineapple juice & coconut milk blended with frozen kiwis, spinach and mangoes. On top, I added granola, frozen papaya and pineapples and then I drizzled it with maple syrup after I took this pic as I wanted it to be a little sweeter.
