Pomegranate, blueberry and banana are blended together with greek yogurt for a smoothie thick enough to eat with a spoon!
Oh, the smoothie bowl. I feel like it’s kind of a trendy breakfast right now, similar to avocado toast. I mean how often do you see these two breakfasts on your fave bloggers’ instagram pages? Pretty often! Smoothie bowls definitely have the pretty factor most of us are looking for when we take pics of our food. Plus, they are delicious and can contain lots of good-for-you vitamins and antioxidants depending on what you put in them!
Up until a few weeks ago, I had never tried making my own smoothie bowl. I’d picked one up a few times from Jugos after a morning workout, but I felt like it was time for me to try blending one up on my own. With pomegranate season winding down soon, I’m trying to take full advantage of them right now. A few days before making my first smoothie bowl, I had seen a co-worker drinking pomegranate-blueberry juice. And there my smoothie bowl inspiration was born!
My Pomegranate and Blueberry Smoothie Bowl is super yummy, with a little bit of tart and a little bit of sweet. While I would normally opt for a milk or almond milk in my smoothies, using greek yogurt (plus the banana) makes it thicker than your typical smoothie- perfect for using your spoon :). I love that you can add toppings to your smoothie bowls too! I kept it in the same flavor family with pomegranate seeds and fresh blueberries , but you can top your smoothie bowl with whatever tickles your fancy- nuts, fruit, coconut… the possibilities are endless! Happy blending 🙂
