Step 2: Pick your toppings
I like to use a variety of toppings on my smoothie bowls.
If possible, use garnishes that compliment the original recipe. For example, garnishing a blueberry smoothie bowl with fresh blueberries or garnishing a pumpkin smoothie with pumpkin seeds or pepitas- super easy!
It's usually nice to use a mix of fresh produce (fruit or herbs) and other toppings (shredded coconut, nuts or seeds, granola) to get a bunch of different flavors and textures.
