Bowls aren’t just for cereal! This light -- but filling -- breakfast can be topped with any fruits and grains.

Smoothies are great for the person-on-the-go, but what about a fruit fix when you have time to slow down and eat at the table? Brandi Milloy, TV host and food reporter of POPSUGAR Food’s Eat the Trend, shares her recipe for smoothie bowls.

“Eating a smoothie bowl is an experience — it’s something more decadent than just your regular smoothie and so versatile. Simply grab some fun toppings and enjoy this anytime of the day!”

Often referred to in her household as “ice cream for breakfast,” Milloy loves topping smoothie bowls with superfoods like chia seeds to keep this meal light and filling.
