Chia Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl

IMG_4245

My friend Rachel was asking me how I make smoothie bowls in the morning before work. I have to be there early in the morning (most days by 7:30), so it doesn’t leave me with a lot of time. Especially if I want to lie in bed until 6:45, which, let’s face it, I always do.

So, I’ll let you in on a couple of my smoothie hacks. If you make the smoothie the night before, you can pour it into a bowl and let it sit in the fridge covered overnight. In the morning, you can take it out and stir to make sure it still has the right color (sometimes it fades a little in the fridge).

Then, you can top it with whatever you want. I slice up a banana, throw on a handful of seeds or put any other toppings on that my heart desires.

Here’s a good get-out-of-bed motivational song.
