I’ve never been so into smoothies as a meal.
Sure, as an on-the-go snack or to quench the thirst on a hot day, sign me up. But I feel like in order to truly be satisfied, I need to chew my food, not drink it.
Then I see this new hashtag all over instagram – #smoothieinabowl. Light bulb moment. All the best qualities of the smoothie but with all the toppings and chew of a good breakfast. This is a bandwagon I was ready to jump on.
So when I was generously gifted some Zespri Sungold Kiwifruit, my first ever green smoothie bowl was born. The best part about this whole smoothie bowl movement is the toppings. It’s like being at your local self serve frozen yogurt bar, only it’s breakfast! I went with some more deliciously sweet kiwis, toasted coconut flakes, and peanut butter, but the kitchen is your oyster!
And wouldn’t you know it, there is a whole two handfuls of baby spinach in that bowl. Well on your way to getting your daily dose of green vegetables and it’s not even noon! Perfect start for the first morning back to school.
Jump on the smoothie bowl bandwagon with me and quench your thirst AND your hunger all at once! #breakfastwin
