It’s supposed to be 66 degrees today and 73 degrees tomorrow. This basically means you’ll find me in capri pants and flip flops all while cleaning my house like a mad woman with the windows open. I’ll probably also bust out my tropical/fruit/summer candles because I have reached the point in the season where I’m going to pretend winter is over.

This tropical green smoothie bowl is just another thing to help me get over the hump of winter. It’s packed with fruit, vegetables and Silk Dairy Free vanilla yogurt. It’s perfectly sweet and can be topped with all. the. things! In my case I went full on tropical and topped this bad boy with toasted coconut, chia seeds, blackberries, kiwi, mint AND edible flowers! I think the flowers are so pretty I don’t even care that I had to pay $2.99 for 2 little flowers.

This was also my first time ever using a dairy-free yogurt. I had my concerns – would it taste good? Would it be as thick as traditional yogurt? Would I be able to taste that it’s “dairy-free?” It tasted great and all my concerns were slowly swept away. I haven’t tried all their flavors but this vanilla is on point! They do make a plain that would probably work lovely in this smoothie bowl but I’m sort of a sucker for that sweet vanilla flavor.

If you’re thinking to yourself “I still don’t get this smoothie bowl craze…” I hear you. I used to be one of those people BUT the reason for a smoothie bowl is simple – toppings. Trust me it’s the toppings that make it worth while. You get all that smoothie goodness PLUS the added nutrition of chia seeds, fruits, etc. Plus I think they’re are super pretty which definitely counts for something. I’m not much of a morning person but waking up to this pretty smoothie bowl every morning MIGHT just change that.

Also you can’t really argue with how easy they are to make. Throw everything in your high powered blender (I LOVE my Vitamix for this job) and whiz it up till smooth and creamy. In just about 5 minutes you have a perfect tropical green smoothie bowl breakfast.

    I think I might like the idea of a smoothie bowl even MORE than drinking a smoothie out of a glass!

    Sounds delicious, and looks SO pretty! I have not tried the smoothie bowls yet, but really need to give it a go. I see at the end of the recipe it says to split between two bowls. I was just wondering how long they would be good for? Is bowl two to share with someone, eat later that day, or would it be okay in the fridge for then next morning?

      Hi Kelley! The 2 bowls are just because it makes enough smoothie for 2 servings. You can always cut the recipe in half if you want less 🙂
