Smoothies are a quick and satisfying way to get your nutrition on the go, but some smoothie bowls are actually quite a sight to behold. By creating a smoothie as a base (for the bowl) you get to “decorate” it with a creative array of toppings such as flaxseed, chia seeds, granola, coconut, berries, fresh fruit or even chocolate shavings to turn them into a heartier meal.

Make sure you have the right equipment to make your smoothie bowl. I recommend this high-powered blender. It can do anything…and it’s not just for smoothies! Here are some gorgeous bowls for your smoothies – so pretty!

When the weather is hot, lemon and herbs and a great way to re-hydrate. This lemon spritzer is so easy to make, plus there’s an adult version available in the recipe card down below, too. I love making this and keeping it in the fridge. It keeps really well in this glass pitcher.

I don’t know about you, but keeping herbs fresh before I use them up has always been a problem for me. Well, check out these herb savers! I love that they’re BPA free and they’ll keep a range of herbs and veggies fresh, longer.

I love making tacos! I really get to stretch my imagination when it comes to the meat, veggies and assortment of toppings. I’m so glad I invested in taco holders, though! Gone are the days of my beautiful taco creation falling over and spilling out all over the plate (and floor, ugh!). Over the years I’ve collected quite a few taco holders and they all do the job equally well. They hold tacos upright! Here are few for your consideration if you don’t already own them.


I’ve rounded up some lovely taco creations by talented and inventive cooks to make your next Taco Tuesday meal a gorgeous display of edible art. Check them out:
