Green doesn’t need to taste ‘clean’

Summer has officially decided to arrive here in Toronto! It was touch-and-go there for a while, but we’ve hit a few days in a row of 22°C or more, so I think it’s safe to say we’re in the clear.

And this warmer weather has me craving all kinds of cooler breakfasts! In comes the smoothie bowl!

I’ll admit, when I first saw a smoothie bowl on Instagram, I rolled my eyes HARD. What was the point? Cold soup is basically what’s going on there.

But that’s not true!

Smoothie bowls are so much more than cold soup. First off - the texture is very different than a smoothie you would drink through a straw. They’re not as liquidy, which means a nice little pillow is created for your toppings to rest ever so nicely on top of.

There’s a number of ways you can decrease the water content of your smoothie bowls to make the texture perfect. I’ve opted for a 1/2 almond milk, 1/2 yogurt combo here and chia seeds to thicken, but if you’re looking to pack a little more fat into the bowl, you can add some avocado for a really dreamy texture.

This combo has me feeling all kinds of summer, so I’ve been rolling with it a lot! I hope you enjoy!
