We all know that smoothies are the latest craze at the moment. There are hundreds of combinations of ingredients that you can get in a smoothie.There are smoothie bars popping up in malls, shopping centres, railway stations all encouraging people to drink them. Now the smoothie craze has taken another turn as smoothies are served as smoothie bowls.This is the latest trend and it even made headlines in the Telegraph last year as an upcoming food trend.
A smoothie bowl is basically a thicker version of a smoothie served in a bowl with different toppings on them such as fruits, granola, seeds etc. They are often thickened with protein powders, nuts, seeds, frozen fruit and vegetables. Unlike the classic smoothie that is generally served in a bottle or glass, the smoothie bowl is a work of art. It is served in a bowl and is dressed very artfully with various toppings and eaten like soup with a spoon. Those of you that are instagram fans will be mesmerised at the beautiful art work of these smoothie bowls.
Although my smoothie bowl is not an art masterpiece, it certainly is delicious and healthy and I am really liking this idea and hope to get my creative juices in action for my next attempt.

1. Add the blueberries, peaches and apple to the Optimum 9400 blender and blend for 30 seconds.2. Add the ice cubes and honey and blend again until the mixture is totally smooth, since this is a smoothie bowl I kept the mixture quite thick, however you could add coconut water or plain water to get the consistency you like.3. Spoon the mixture into two bowls and garnish with blueberries, granola and chia seeds.
