I always try to keep it happy, and healthy. I usually have a shake in the morning for breakfast, but thought it was time to switch things up a bit. I have seen the smoothie bowl start to get popular, so I decided to try one for myself. I tested one out for first time this week at a the FRESH FUSION CAFE in davie. Honestly that place was awesome, and delicious!! I went home, did some research, and came up with my own rendition.
The base of the smoothie is usually a frozen Acai berry pure or dragonfruit puree, some form of fresh juice or coconut milk, frozen fruit, and some others add protein powders as well. It is illegal to sell Acai in the fresh form in the states. You can purchase the blended frozen pack in the frozen fruit section at whole foods. The topping to the bowl is your choice of chopped seasonal fruit, granola, honey, nuts, and I like to add bee pollen. Its adds a hidden sweetness, helps with your allegeries, the color is beautiful, and adds a crunchy texture. Just remember if your buying bee pollen to purchase it from a local source, because; your allergies are too things around you, not from pollen from other countries. Your nearest whole foods will carry two brands. One that is generic, and one that is local. The granola I like to make from scratch. For convince I understand to purchase it, but I like to make it form scratch! If you need help or a recipe just email me!!
