Breakfast, they say it’s the most important meal of the day. Apparently the thinking goes that if you start the day off with a healthy meal, this Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl for Two for instance, you’ll be more likely to keep making healthy choices the rest of the day. I agree with that line of thinking, but would add that eating breakfast together as a couple, makes the first meal of the day even better!

Why a Smoothie Bowl?
Smoothie bowls aren’t that different than a smoothie, but by serving in a bowl they allow you to add toppings like the ones I use here: fruit, coconut, and granola, making your morning smoothie a little more substantial and filling…not to mention pretty.
Divvying Up The Jobs:
Here at Cook with Me Darling we espouse working side by side in the kitchen! Two sets of hands make lighter work, so one of you can blend the smoothies while the other prepares the toppings, then you can both sit down together, eat and discuss the latest episode of Schitt’s Creek…or whatever.
