Accidental Election Smoothie Bowl

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-10-32-03-am
Last week, I woke up one morning and decided to make a smoothie bowl. I had some extra pomegranate seeds lying around and a pack of blueberries that needed to be used up.

I scattered some seeds on one side, some blueberries on the other, and made a row of bananas in the middle. I looked down and realized: I made an election smoothie bowl.

Maybe it’s my subconscious still working through last month’s election. I wouldn’t be surprised. I still have PTSD flashbacks of the results going up on TV, and everyone’s face in the roomΒ changing from jubilant to panicked.

Or maybe it’s just the fact that red and blue are complimentary colors, and the yellow of the bananas was a good neutral.

Whatever it is, though, it’s divisive. #Divisive. Or as my sister said, “no effective communication across the banana aisle :/” The only reason I didn’t call the bowl “popular vote” on InstagramΒ is because the two sides looked equal, and the blue side should have been bigger to reflect the true results (if you know what I mean πŸ˜‰

ANYWAY. In non-election-related news (which, let’s face it, we all need), I’ve been teeing up some good music lately. Christmas music features heavily, as it always does at this time of year. But I’ve also come across some other tunes, including this song. It’s good for when you accidentally make an election smoothie bowl. Or, you know, whenever.

Accidental Election Smoothie Bowl (from me, to you)

1 cup pomegranate seeds, divided
1 cup blueberries, divided

Directions

Blend the one banana, 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds, 1/2 cup blueberries, Greek yogurt and almond milk in a blender on high until smooth. Lay down the banana median and then sprinkle granola on one side, and the almonds on the other. Then sprinkle the remaining pomegranate seeds and blueberries on either side of the median. Enjoy!
