smoothie bowls are so illusive, you know? they're the thing you're always liking on instagram or pinning on pinterest, but you never actually end up making them. (or maybe that's just me. ha!) one recent afternoon, i felt the need to break this cycle that so many of us seem to fall into. i decided i would make a summer smoothie bowl, so i headed to the closest grocery store, picked out the freshest fruit, crushed up some ice, and got to blendin'.

INSTRUCTIONS for the bowl

  • wash and dry fruit
  • blend all ingredients together in blender
  • pour into bowl
  • if too thin, add more ice, a bannana, or granola
  • top with fresh fruit, nuts, granola, etc. 

INGREDIENTS for the bowl

  • handfull of blackberries
  • handfull of raspberries
  • handfull of blackberries
  • one strawberry
  • two-three kale leaves
  • about a half cup of granola (to thicken)
  • vanilla almond milk to taste
  • three ice cubes

illusive or not, smoothie bowls are definitely the best thing everrrrr. this smoothie was the perfect refreshing lunch for a summer weekend, and i can't wait to try out more combinations. what about you? have you ever made a smoothie bowl/acaí bowl, or do you just stick to double tapping them? i prefer to do both ;)
