Although I know it’s September, I was still in such a summery mood until literally 2 days ago. I threw on my usual top and shorts and headed out of the door to my car … only to be caught completely off guard by how cold I was!! The sun was shining but the air was distinctly colder. I don’t know why it caught me off guard as I did – perhaps I am trying to be willfully ignorant of the fact that fall and winter are fast approaching, with this year’s winter predicted to be cold and miserable.
I realized that soon I would be craving warm foods again like soups, pho and oatmeal bowls, and that I needed to make a smoothie bowl ASAP before the it started to sound unappealing. Hence the creation of this lovely and berry filled summer smoothie bowl! It’s really a mix of everything – bananas for sweetness; cherries, strawberries and raspberries for that low(er) sugar berry goodness and beautiful color. I recently switched to having cashew milk because I find it is much creamier and pleasant tasting that your standard almond milk. I prefer to have a dairy-free milk in my smoothies to keep the overall caloric content lower. I was also sent a few samples of Kura Lifestyle’s Sweet Mint and Berries, which is a healthy and tasty addition to this smoothie! It is composed of super greens, camu camu and eleuthro root so it really adds in a superfood punch to the smoothie.
