Since summer, when I started my journey as a vegetarian, I have had quite an obsession with smoothie bowls. I'm not into the whole #foodporn craze. I don't go trolling around online looking for food photos, but I've stumbled upon a few Instagrammers who have me mesmerized with their delicious smoothie bowl pics. Who knew you could turn so many fruits and veggies into beautiful works of art? I'm terrible at styling my food since I'm just going to eat it anyway, but I do admire those who can line up their chia seeds, granola, and fruit on top of their smoothie bowls with exact precision.
I've always had a smoothie obsession (just not in bowls), and after almost 20 years, I've finally got Jason on the bandwagon too. He even bought a Ninja blender for work so he can make himself one at lunchtime. To keep him from getting bored with plain old fruit smoothies, I recently made him one of my favorites and turned it into a smoothie bowl, which is perfect for a lunchtime meal.
With the cocoa flavor and thick consistency, you could pass this smoothie bowl off as a bowl of chocolate ice cream sans the guilt of scarfing down that fatty dessert! It's really the same kind of treat you can get with one of those Yonanas machines, without the investment.
