SMOOTHIE BOWLS ARE MY NEW OBSESSION!

I have a few new obsession for the spring time.

My first obsession is smoothie bowls. Besides the obvious fact that you get to eat your smoothie with a spoon, which come on, reminds me an awful lot like eating a bowl of melting ice cream.  Which if you look at my topping choices, totally reflects my love of ice cream sundaes.  Chocolate, Banana and Nuts, and of course chocolate sauce.

But of course the smoothie bowl must offer lots of healthy good for you ingredients, hence my new obsession with an old thing, spinach.

Yes, you read that right, spinach, my second spring obsession.  I don’t know what it is!  Could be all the Kale we have been eating, but spinach is my jam right now.  I love to sneak a bit in where ever I can.  And yes you can add spinach to almost every damn smoothie recipe out there.  I really doesn’t change the flavor, but you get all those healthy fabulous benefits of eating like Popeye!  Big healthy muscles! If you think about it, most people who eat and drink smoothies do it because they want to be mean lean fighting machines with killer muscles.  And well spinach helps with all that.

Lastly, my third obsession this spring is Targets new clothing collection from Who What Wear.  The cutest stuff!  I got two dresses, a romper and a fun white lacy top that will look great with jeans or slacks.  I actually picked up five fun summer dresses at Target that I will wear the heck out of all summer long, and of course they were all at prices that made me very happy indeed.  Go check it out, but only after you make this awesome smoothie bowl.

    My daughter and I have been on a smoothie bowl kick lately and we love adding spinach to ours too. I love the mocha flavor here, definitely need to make this one soon.

    1. Thanks Joanie. I like adding the mocha and coffee flavors to any smoothie I make that contains bananas. Not sure why but the flavor combo makes me a happy girl.

    I have been loving smoothie bowls lately, and this one looks amazing! 🙂 And I love sneaking in spinach and greens everywhere that I can too! It is so easy to slip a handful of spinach or kale into a smoothie bowl or smoothie and get some extra good stuff in there.

    1. I agree with you Carrie, sneak those greens in where ever you can and smoothies are the perfect place.

    1. It is a great way to start your day Krista! Especially for busy Mom’s who need a lot of fuel to get through their morning.
