Have you noticed that smoothie bowls have become ubiquitous of late? Everywhere I go, I see acai bowls and pitaya bowls and chia bowls. Try doing a Pinterest search for smoothie bowls and you’ll see all sorts of beautifully styled bowls of fruit, nuts and assorted goodies. For some reason, I’ve never thought to make the kids a smoothie bowl—until last night, that is. I was trying to come up with yet another nice, light, fruit-filled lunch for a hot day. Smoothie bowl to the rescue. I made a simple green smoothie with frozen bananas, frozen pineapple, spinach and vanilla soy milk. I poured it in a bowl, stirred in a tablespoon of chia seeds to ensure that it’s not too runny, and garnished with frozen blueberries, granola and coconut. I hope it’s a hit with the kids. I kind of want one for my lunch, but I’ll probably end up eating carrots, crackers and hummus like I did yesterday.
