I feel like this smoothie bowl could resuscitate someone. Okay, maybe not, but possibly…
It’s a delightful wake up call. Did I just write that? I did. But it’s true! Picture a mango lassi (or mango smoothie) with a zesty kick and you’ll land somewhere close to this smoothie bowl. I like how the tart lime offsets the sweeter mango. I recommend putting blueberries on top for more tartness and adding slightly salty granola for variety. It’s important to have a good balance between salty/sweet/tart. It’s something I aspire to.
Anyway. Enjoy this bowl! It’s good for mornings when you really, REALLY don’t feel like going to work, but you force yourself to go, anyway. This usually happens to me on a Monday, but feel free to use it as needed.
In other news, I’ve been singing a lot in the car lately (credit/blame a long commute). Here’s a song that I sang along to today. I actually know the lyrics (unlike most of the songs I sing) because I used it to audition for musicals in college. The lyrics still make me laugh.
Mango Lime Smoothie Bowl (from me, to you)
1 lime, quartered
1 cup frozen mango
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
blueberries, granola, shredded coconut, chia seeds, more mango for topping
Blend the juice from half a lime, 1 cup frozen mango, almond milk, and nonfat Greek yogurt in a blender on high until smooth. Top with blueberries, granola, shredded coconut, chia seeds and mango. Garnish with a lime quarter. Enjoy!
