I Made A Smoothie Bowl! (and This Weeks Eats 6.28.15)

Despite the fact that we have air conditioning, this crazy hot weather we've been having has made me pretty disinterested in hot food.  I've been consuming lots of salads and iced coffee (and tea) during the day, and now...  I must admit, I made a smoothie bowl!

It seems like such the newfangled thing and sort of silly.  Why not just drink a smoothie?  But I gave one a try at a local Brazilian fast food place a few weeks ago and now I GET IT.

There's just something about the texture and being able to slowly eat your blended fruit with toppings: the creaminess of thick yogurt or bananas, the crunch of coconut or granola.  I'd never have just a smoothie for lunch, but I will most certainly have a smoothie bowl.

My creation consisted of:

For the smoothie base - 1 small frozen banana, a frozen acai pack, about two tablespoons of Greek yogurt and about 1/3 cup of almond milk.

For the toppings - a few sliced strawberries, half a banana sliced, chia seeds, sliced almonds, shredded coconut, a big handful of granola and a drizzle of honey.
