This morning I woke up craving a peach smoothie bowl. It was raining outside so I was torn between ignoring the craving and pressing snooze two more times on my alarm, or actually getting up and making the bowl. Luckily, the smoothie bowl won out.
Making smoothie bowls with blueberries is difficult because if you add too many, your smoothie will turn the color of lint. That sounds disgusting and trust me, it also looks gross.
The trick is adding fewer blueberries than other fruit in the bowl, unless you’re working with strawberries and raspberries. Then you should be okay. Otherwise, err on the side of too few than too many.
I decided to top the bowl with hemp hearts because I haven’t had them in a while, and also they look like the middle of a flower when you sprinkle a bunch of them in a circle. I drizzled honey on top to add some sweetness, because my peaches weren’t that ripe and the blueberries were super tart.
In other news, I’m about to go to the Blue Ridge Mountains in a week and I’m amped. I’ve never been to that part of the country before so I’m excited to see what it looks like and do some hiking. Also, I want to eat everything because Asheville’s food is supposed to be delicious. Lots of BBQ and biscuits are on the horizon.
Here’s a song that reminds me of where I’m going. I love the piano and guitar in it.
