A fancy smancy smoothie bowl is simply a luxurious way to start the day. No need to put a big hole in your pocket at an upscale brunch or breakfast joint, this is one smoothie bowl that you can make yourself at home. We are taking the breakfast selfie today at your own kitchen table, or breakfast nook!
Food shouldn’t just look good and taste good, it should be good to you and for you!
This is one smoothie bowl that falls in all the right categories for me. Coconut, blueberries, kiwi? What beats that combination alone? Texture, color, just a little bit of crunch to top it off – I am in heaven already! Each ingredient stands out on its own, with its own brand of flavor which makes it quite easy to understand how these ingredients would meld together and arouse your palette. Now let’s talk about practicality, these are three gut biome-loving ingredients.
Nothing would make this smoothie bowl bae more than adding a bit of charcuterie board fun to the mix and kicking in a bit of protein for those of you who cannot necessarily roll with seeds and nuts in your bowl. Nothing too fancy, there are so many options when it comes to sorting out what type of protein you would like to add to your board. Might I suggest a side of wild-caught salmon? Not only is it a quick-cooking side of meat, but a pan-seared side of salmon done right is also quite easy on the eyes aboard a charcuterie board.
Throw in a few roasted or pan-seared breakfast potatoes and a few sprigs of asparagus and you have the board made. Anything that you don’t finish now will be great to have for lunch. Either way, expect people to start knocking your door down when that selfie goes live on social media. It is time to make brunch plans with a couple of hungry friends!
Beauty has so many forms, and a pandemic breakfast club is just the right flavor of fun!
Now I know that I may be just a little bit extra, but freshly baked raisin bread and friends go hand in hand for me. Have you ever had freshly baked raisin bread? If you have not tried it yet, well that is quite the pandemic project, my friend. Throw away the store brought raisin toast that you toss into a toaster and then slather with butter and take the oven-fresh approach. You will not regret it. Don’t be intimidated by the thought of making your own bread. With nowhere to be, the biggest part of making bread is the waiting game. What was once a weekend project can be done any day of the week. Now that I have given you a few mouthwatering ideas, let’s get to the smoothie bowl recipe.
