Let’s talk about smoothie bowls. It’s a weird trend that I tried to get behind and I just can’t. I feel like I’m just drinking cold soup that hasn’t been pureed enough so there’s chunks of stuff in it. Sounds super appetizing, huh? I’m seeing smoothie bowls pop up and everywhere and even some shops in Cali have them now too. I have nothing against people who like them, I just personally don’t understand it. A smoothie is a smoothie to me. Put it in a cup, put a straw in it, and drink. I don’t get why you need to have toppings all over it. It’s not a pizza.
HOWEVER. I’m a stickler to my motto of trying something once before you can say you don’t like it, so of course I had to try it out for myself and make a blog post on it. Plus, if there are smoothie bowl fans out there, you could benefit from this recipe, right? Or if you’ve never tried a smoothie bowl before and you’ve wanted to, this is your chance to see if you like it or not to pursue this new smoothie way of life!

So yummy ?! I tried it but instead I used peanut butter and no bananas, and almond milk but it still tasted gorgeous! The peanut butter is taste able but doesn’t overpower the berries! Instead I drank it too because I was just in that kinda mood ??! A definite must try!

Hi Julie - I have to agree with you - I'm on the go and grabbing a smoothie "too go" for a quick breakfast works for me. If I had time to sit down and eat a bowl of something, maybe I'd drink a smoothie with it, but I don't want stuff in my smoothie. I am going to use this recipe for a smoothie with out the add-ons though! Thank you

I have had the same reaction about smoothie bowls. I love smoothies, but their portability is the best part (in my opinion). If I'm making one it's because I want a grab a go item. I don't know how I'd feel about eating one with a spoon and it having chunks of stuff in it. Yours looks so pretty and bright though.
