Smoothie Bowls

Maybe it's the health benefits or maybe it's just the colorful aesthetic, but either way,  I'm intrigued by these smoothie bowls I keep seeing everywhere. They inspire me to create my own, however ordering one at a cafe seems much simpler. When I do decide to create one at home, here are a few recipes I'm bookmarking to give a try.
