Guys guys guys!! I’m no longer a smoothie bowl virgin!!
It’s CRAZY to me to think that it has taken me this long to make myself a smoothie bowl, but I get it. Smoothies aren’t really my thing.
Is that a sacrilegious thing to say as a food blogger?
But it’s TRUE. Smoothies never fill me up. I think my brain is like, “Why aren’t you chewing? This must not be a meal,” so I never get full from slurping down a smoothie. No matter if I load it up with nut butters, protein powders, and superfoods, I can always count on my stomach to be grumbling about 30 minutes later.
Please tell me I’m not the only one here. It’s such a bummer because, as we all know, smoothies are a fantastic way of stuffing a ton of vitamins and nutrients into one little neat package. Smoothies are brilliant in theory. In reality, however, they’re just not filling enough for me.
But friends, THAT’S why the smoothie bowl is so brilliant! Smoothie bowls are packed with different textures and flavors to make you feel like you’re actually eating a meal. And the best part? You totally have to chew it because of those crazy-delicious toppings! It’s basically like eating cereal, just elevated. Elevated by a super thick purple smoothie.
Not gonna lie, I was a bit skeptical as I dumped my smoothie into a bowl. But upon first bite – it was complete and total magic.
Friends, eating this smoothie bowl is like eating an ice cream sundae for breakfast. That creamy, sweet smoothie based with all those crazy crunchy toppings? FUH-getaboutit.
But this “ice cream sundae” is made with frozen blueberries, fresh lemon, and a few other healthy and delicious ingredients to help you start your day off right!
I’m still kicking myself for how long it took me to discover this masterpiece, so don’t let it happen to you! I’m beggin’. And if getting to eat ice cream for breakfast isn’t enough to convince you to try this recipe, know that the topping ideas are completely customizable and only limited by your imagination! My desired toppings were almonds, chia seeds, blueberries, and my favoritefavoritefavorite Lemon Chia Seed Granola, but feel free to mix it up based on what you have handy. I know that I’ll be topping my bowls with a pile of fresh fruit once it’s summer!
But friends, I had the awesome opportunity to share this recipe over at my good friend Georgie’s blog, In it 4 the Long Run.Georgie is a powerhouse in the world of food blogging, vegetarian cooking, and balanced, healthy living. I am dying to try SO many of her recipes like this Cilantro Pesto Buddha Bowl and these Vegan Chocolate Truffles (I KNOW).
