Berry Banana Smoothie Bowl


is anyone else super elated that the sun is coming up earlier and earlier.  
i love mornings.  like love, love mornings, kind of love.
and i love the fact that by 7:30 the skies are beautiful shades of pinks and blues co-mingling as the day officially gets under way.

i'm also loving smoothies lately.  perhaps that's because it feels like spring in the city.  today we are expected to see temperatures in the double digits, in FEBRUARY.  hallelujah.

so with warmer temperatures in mind i'm going the smoothie route, again.
yesterday i shared a recipe for my peanut butter cup smoothie bowl.  an indulgent, dessert-like snack, from my new go-to smoothie bowl cookbook from alison lewis.  
today, i'm taking a healthier approach and sharing one that is a perfect addition to my busy morning routine of bus stop drop-offs and errand filled tasks.


berry banana for the win.

cheers.xo.

  1. I make similar smoothies all the time but never really considered a) putting them in a bowl and b) putting toppings on. Hmmmm. This might get me up in the morning!
