Are you on the smoothie bowl bandwagon yet?
I have to admit that I am late to this party. Not to the smoothie party – I’ve been obsessed with those for ages. We’ve done mango versions, blueberry versions, pomegranate versions, coconut versions…and we know that I have a deep love for granola as well. I still have dreams about my Coconut Ginger Almond Granola. So when I started to see these mystical bowls that combined both of these amazing breakfast items pop up on Pinterest, I was curious. I sent a text over to my girl Julia – who I consider to be my resource for any and all things mildly hippy – to see what all the fuss was about and she told me I needed to try them immediately or I was a fool.
Ok, she didn’t really say that. But she did tell me that I would loooove them.
And you know what? She was so right.
Let’s evaluate what we’ve got going on here and why it’s amazing:
Super-thick berry smoothie, because super-thick smoothies are the shiz: Check.
Toasted cashews, which just so happen to be my favorite for eating straight out of hand: Check.
Granola (see previous love letter, above): Check.
Coconut, because everything is better with coconut: Check.
Extra berries, for some extra pretty on top: Check.
Mix this all up, plop your butt down and grab a spoon – you’ve got the best of a smoothie breakfast with the extra goodies on top to help keep you full throughout the morning…or until elevensies, whichever the case may be.
