Eating the same dining hall scrambled eggs and bacon every morning for breakfast becomes repetitive and boring. Despite the improvements in Hodson, only so many food options can be served. When you find yourself lacking variety, try preparing an Instagram-worthy smoothie bowl. In fact, the dining hall has several essential ingredients such as yogurt, peanut butter, granola, and an assortment of fruit.

A blender is required to prepare a smoothie bowl; however, personal blenders can be bought in a store or online from anywhere between $15 to $75.

Below are a few recipes that I have created myself. My smoothie bases all consist of a blend of fruit, such as mixed berries for an antioxidant boost, mangos, bananas, and pineapple for a more tropical taste, or any mixture in between.

After making the base, the smoothie bowls are usually topped with chia seeds, sliced fruit, or granola. Bee pollen, coconut flakes, oats, and cocoa nibs have also been popular choices because of their associated health benefits. When creating your own mixtures and flavors, the more creative and colorful, the better.
