Hi friends! Hope you are having a great mid-week. How is it May already, boggles my mind. It feels a lot like summer here in Florida, so smoothie bowls have been making a lot of appearance on our breakfast/snack table.

Smoothies, the perfect way to include as much greens as possible, especially the ones that are threatening to wilt after I went on a grocery shopping spree and over-bought leafy greens. On a huge discount!

An expenditure that’s totally justified, right?

If you are following us on Instagram, you would’ve seen variations of smoothie bowls. I’m totally obsessed. It’s a great snack on a very hot day and so versatile. You can literally add whatever your heart desires into the blender, whizz, and voila!

A smoothie bowl that is soul satisfying, nutritious and delicious.

Do not skimp on the toppings. Don’t.

That looks beautiful and healthy. Unfortunately, I’m not a big fan of smoothies (texture + I have problems “drinking” food, unless it’s a savoury soup)… 😉 Lovely pics, especially the last one.

Cheers,

Rosa

I am starting to grow very fond of smoothie bowls lately Kiran and yours looks and sounds delish! I must say I hadn’t thought about how cooling they are on a hot summer day till you pointed that out – and what a delicious way to get my greens in!

Smoothie bowls are big here! Especially acai bowls but I haven’t quite succumbed yet. But yours has really convinced me I should give them more of a try!

Oh Kiran….these smoothie bowls are beautiful! I am so intrigued by smoothie bowls, but have yet to make any. Somehow I feel like I have to be so clever in creating one. But really, it’s just a matter of putting together some flavors you really enjoy. And I love all your flavors here. So pretty, too. Especially your kiwi tulips! : )

I haven’t yet graduated from smoothies in bottles/glasses to bowls yet, though the idea of topping with fruits and nuts sounds great. Love how green your bowl is!
