Symmetrical Smoothie Bowl

screen-shot-2017-02-27-at-6-01-48-pm
This smoothie bowl kind of reminds me of the split screens in late ’80s, early ’90s movies. The only difference is, you can eat this.

Well, maybe that’s not the ONLY difference, but it is an important one. Also, it’s delicious. I needed to use up a bunch of spinach, so I decided to mix it with pineapple for sweetness and my favorite fruit, avocado, for texture. I topped the bowl with some blueberries and shredded coconut for decoration.

Even though this bowl isn’t exactly symmetrical, it comes pretty close. There’s something satisfying about lining up the kiwi side by side and then putting in the blueberries and coconut. I wish I had the time and patience to take a video of the process, because I think it would be fun to watch the bowl go from green and bare to designed.

Here’s a song that helped me get through a very long day at work. It’s also good for making semi-symmetrical smoothie bowls or taking long walks around the park (and barely making it back from lunch on time).
