Breakfast Smoothie Bowls under PHP200: A Cheap, Healthy, Refreshing Way to Start the Day

January 14, 2020

Smoothie bowls were all the rage a few years back. What’s not to like? It’s healthy, easy-to-eat, and “so cute.” But the good ones are always so damn expensive. Well, we prove that they don’t have to be. You don’t have to have strawberries and chia seeds to make it delicious; nor do you have to go to a hip brunch place to enjoy a well-made one. All you need is a blender, a complementing combo of fruits, and 200 bucks.

It’s a breakfast smoothie bowl, and it’s happy to see you.

This breakfast smoothie bowl recipe uses ripe mango, papaya, and bananas; all of which you can easily get from your local fruit vendor. To make sure your smoothie is thick (you’re not making a drink here), it’s necessary to freeze the fruits overnight. Don’t sleep on the granola (or cereal)—you’ll love (and look for) that contrasting crunch.
