Asian Melon Mango Coconut Smoothie Bowl

Screen Shot 2016-08-31 at 9.42.05 AM
I was at a breakfast crossroads this morning. I had an Asian melon that I bought at Eastern Market on Sunday, some bananas, and berries and chia seeds for an overnight oatmeal that I forgot to make last night. So I decided to improvise and ended up making this bowl.

This is my most delicious smoothie bowl to date. The Asian melon, banana, mango and coconut yogurt give the bowl a tropical flavor. The berries add some sweetness and the chia seeds and toasted coconut add texture. On a day like today, when it’s supposed to be at least 90 degrees F in D.C., I’m thankful for the refreshment.

If you’re vegan, feel free to swap in some dairy-free yogurt. Otherwise, I’d definitely recommend going with the Siggi’s coconut yogurt that I used. It makes the smoothie thick and creamy and creates a base for everything you put on top.

Here’s a song to jam out to while you make this bowl.
