#BEAUTYFOOD BITES: Berry Bright Smoothie Bowl for Morning Glow

#BEAUTYFOOD BITES: Berry Bright Smoothie Bowl for Morning Glow

Take a few extra moments to savor your morning #beautyfood smoothie! How? By creating a frozen treat #beautyfood bowl packed with antioxidant powers. It’s like having skin-loving sorbet for breakfast!

The trick with these fabulous smoothie bowls is getting the right consistency. It helps to have all the frozen fruit roughly the same size, so they blend well. So here, slicing your strawberries before freezing will keep the texture even. Though a high-speed blender works well, if possible use a food processor for a smooth consistency. If you find the mixture a bit too soft, as can happen when fruit is extra juicy, just add some more frozen fruit.
