On this not-so-sunny morning in D.C., I bring you this very sunny and bright strawberry mango banana smoothie bowl.
I woke up this morning and this smoothie was the first thing that popped into my head. I had seen a recipe for a strawberry banana smoothie bowl yesterday, and I decided to riff off it and make my own.
I also wanted something a little lighter for breakfast because I ate my weight in mussels and bread last night at this new Belgian restaurant.
This was the perfect choice. I used fresh banana and strawberries, and then I added some cubes of frozen mango to thicken up the texture. I also added some 2% Icelandic coconut yogurt, but you could add Greek yogurt or another kind if you want to achieve the same effect.
Here’s a good song to play when you’re blending to drown out the noise.
Strawberry Banana Mango Smoothie Bowl (from me, to you)
1 cup strawberries with stems removed
1/2-1 cup Icelandic 2% coconut yogurt (or another thick yogurt of your choice)
4-5 cubes of frozen mango
1 tsp Chia seeds
Toasted coconut flakes, shredded coconut, granola, blueberries and extra strawberries for topping
Blend all the ingredients on high in a blender. Pour into a bowl and top as you please (I added the coconut, gluten-free vanilla granola, blueberries and some sliced strawberries).
