Brighten up your morning routine with a vibrant smoothie breakfast bowl that takes just minutes to assemble. Kiwifruit is blended with wheatgrass and kale for bright green color and tangy-sweet flavor, then the mixture is topped with quinoa, fresh fruit, and seeds. And you don’t even need a cutting board to prep the kiwifruit! Simply halve it through the middle, then scoop out each side with a spoon. Feel free to improvise with the toppings suggested here. Quinoa can be replaced with any other whole grain, and different fruits can be switched in according to what’s in season. Just be sure to always use a banana, which gives the smoothie base its creamy texture.
