Açai Bowl with Pomegranate and Coconut

I haven’t posted a smoothie bowl for a while, so I decided to share this one with you.

I was thinking about why I like making smoothie bowls every morning. When I started making bowls over the summer, everyone kept asking me how long they take to make. “I don’t know,” I said. “Thirty minutes?” This was before I got bowl-making down to a science.

“Thirty minutes?” my friend’s boyfriend said. “That’s my entire morning routine.”

Yes, it seems excessive. No, not everyone has time to devote to this. But for me, making a smoothie bowl is a little like meditation. When I’m doing it, I forget about everything else. It calms me and centers me before I get started with the rest of my day.

It’s also fun. I’ve always liked to make patterns since I was little, so making the bowls has become an artistic outlet, too. There’s something satisfying about looking down at a bowl when I’m done making it, and thinking, whoa, I did that. Sometimes it looks like sh** and I have to sink toppings to the bottom and start all over again. But most of the time, it looks pretty darn good.

Anyway. I highly encourage you to give smoothie bowl-making a try. It’s a good way to be creative and relax before you have to go out into the real world. I think all of us could agree that creativity and slow breathing is very, very important in times like these.

Here’s a song to get you started on your smoothie bowl journey.
