Hello, everyone! How are you? Hopefully staying healthy and enjoying some warm weather. Or, if you’re like me and live in a tundra, praying that you don’t get the flu (again) and looking at the drab gray sky and praying for a peek at some blue. Luckily for all of us not enjoying 50 degree + weather, I’ve got something that is almost as good as a clear blue sky.
Ok, maybe not as good but it definitely beats out taking a vitamin C pill every morning.
This honestly came to me (as most recipes do, come to think of it) while wandering around my local market checking out the gorgeous produce. They happened to have these beautiful little satsuma oranges and I just knew that I had to use them in something.
Like most of you, I am obsessed with smoothie bowls. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good smoothie in a tall glass as much as the next person but there is something about putting it into a bowl and smothering it with delicious goodies that makes the idea of a smoothie bowl just too good to resist.
I mean, look at that! The crunchy granola, sweet blueberries, chia seeds and goji berries for some added superfood and to top it all off a sprinkling of unsweetened coconut! It really doesn’t get more tropical than this (at least, in Utah it doesn’t).
And the best part is that this smoothie bowl is truly customizable. The smoothie has fresh orange juice, banana, mango, almond milk, and a spoonful of coconut cream (in case you want it a bit creamier) which can be switched out for any of your favorite fruits and then top with whatever goodies you have on hand! I would recommend not skimping on the blueberries, however, as they really add a nice sweetness.
***I can’t wait for you guys to try this so go ahead and leave a comment if you do! I promise this is a healthy smoothie even your pickiest eater will love!
