I follow a lot of food blogger Instagram accounts, and I find myself gravitating towards the pages that contain the most photos of smoothie bowls. It’s not that smoothie bowls are difficult to make, I just love the pictures. It’s like making your breakfast a beautiful work of art. And it inspires me to eat more fruit! And healthy breakfast meals! If a meal looks gorgeous, I’m eating it.

I came up with this¬†chocolate covered cherry smoothie bowl because… well… I love chocolate covered cherries. I eat a lot of other berries on a consistent basis, but I always tend to overlook the cherries. But the sweet flavor of the frozen banana combined with the tartness of the cherry is pure perfection.

I also make my own cacao sauce topping with cacao powder, maple syrup and coconut oil. And I top the smoothie bowl with some cacao nibs, because you can never get enough healthy superfood goodness!

Cheers to a light healthy breakfast that taste just like dessert!
