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.

    LOL, you have no idea how many posts I want to write with one line like that. At least once a week! We do most of our burgers with ground turkey or chicken so I’m always keeping an eye out for new ideas – absolutely love this one! So much flavor!

    • nutmegnanny replied: — June 3rd, 2013 @ 10:15 am

      I’m glad I’m not the only one! Sometimes food is just too good to sit there and write a novel about it…haha 🙂 I hope you give the burgers a try and of course love them 🙂

    What a nice, light, summery burger! I’d go even further and serve it in a nice romaine leaf 🙂

      It would make the perfect lettuce wrap burger!
