I’ve been spending the last 48 hours tricking myself into believing that it’s already spring. So far, it seems to be working.
I made this bowl for breakfast over the weekend and it helped. Nothing says “spring” (or “summer,” for that matter) more than strawberries and peaches. There aren’t any ripe peaches in D.C. yet, so I subbed in peach Icelandic yogurt. I used fresh strawberries, which also aren’t in season but they were looking mighty fine at the grocery store. Add in a banana for good measure and you have a smoothie bowl that will remind you of warmer days.
If you’re not a fan of coconut (we all know how I feel about it), feel free to add almonds on top instead. I bet it would be equally delicious.
Semi-Related: I’ve been listening to a lot of Great Good Fine Ok today. It’s good music to jam out to with your headphones in if you want to drown out noise at work (or, in my case, ongoing hallway construction).
Strawberry Peach Banana Smoothie Bowl (from me, to you)
1 cup strawberries, hulled
1/2 unfrozen banana
1/2 cup peach yogurt, or 1 cup if you want it thicker (honestly I just used a container of Siggi’s peach yogurt)
1 1/4 cup almond milk
Coconut flakes, granola and banana slices for topping
Blend all the ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Top with coconut flakes, granola and banana slices, or any other toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
