Good morning my friends! This is my 126th smoothie bowl for him and I call it the “Tropical Bowl”🌴☀🌊 . I got this name from @smalltownfoodnfun from one of my previous posts. She suggested the Tropical Bowl name but this one here is more fitting for that name right?
This smoothie bowl is the most time-consuming bowl I have ever made but it was worth all the time and effort because it was delicious according to my husband who eats all these smoothies in the morning before he goes to work. It has a lot of ingredients and it took me an hour to finish everything from melting the cacao chocolate, designing the toppings, and setting up my small portable studio and camera. As you know yesterday I made a big batch of smoothie and this smoothie batch is part of that batch I made. I stored the rest in two mason jars and refrigerated them overnight. We love cold smoothies not only because it’s summer but because it enhances the fresh flavors of the fruits, nuts, and especially the berries. It also makes the yogurt consistency perfect for decorating.
On another note, it’s Friday today so Happy Friday! Hopefully, tomorrow is a sunny day because as you can see in my photos it is starting to look like Autumn. This is because I don’t use filters or artificial lighting so my photos really depend on the time of day and the weather when I take the photos. Signs of Autumn started showing last weekend when we hiked. The color of daylight and the sky are gradually changing with the weather. hence, darker shades in my photos might start to appear. When we hiked some leaves have started to turn orange and this weekend might be the last spurt of Summer. I bet this Autumn will beautiful! Last year was a little odd but hopefully this year we will witness beautiful Autumn hues.
Let’s take it easy today, so I will leave you with a quote from Bruce Lee the man who lived his life philosophy every day of his life. “Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own”. It might sound too strong but that’s because he is a fighter, a Gung Fu master. But what he meant to say is easy, pick up only the valuable lessons, throw away wrong ideologies that will not help you grow as a person or as whatever you vowed to become and make sure to own your passion because that is what’s original and unique. Whatever we have learned from others we must improve even more because a great man is he who seeks to compete only with himself.
Happy Friday and LOVE YOUR BODY!
7-inch diameter bowl
easy-squeeze dispenser (like a ketchup dispenser)
1 ripe banana
1 tbsp ripe jackfruit, shredded
4 large strawberries
8 oz organic yogurt
2 tbsp honey (optional)
1/2 cup toasted oats (any breakfast cereal)
Put 1 cup of cereals/oats in the bowl and level to make the surface even. Blend banana, jackfruit, strawberries, and yogurt in a blender until fully combined. Add the honey while the blender is running. This will prevent the honey from getting stuck on the bottom of the blender. Pour the banana-jackfruit-strawberries smoothie in a circular motion on top of the cereals/oats. This will prevent the cereals/oats from floating to the surface of the smoothie.
1 ripe frozen strawberry
1/2 ripe banana, slices
2 tbsp champagne grapes
2 tbsp raw hazelnuts
2 tbsp toasted oats
1 tsp mixed grains (white chia, barley, millet, quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, etc)

1 tsp maca powder
1/2 tsp sunflower seeds

1. Sprinkle maca powder on the smoothie to make a bed and shadow of the coconut tree.
2. Melt the cacao chocolate and add a tbsp of milk over low heat until melted.
3. In a small ramekin, mix the moringa, chlorella, and matcha with the yogurt until fully combined. Add more of each until you reach the green color you need for the leaves of the coconut tree. Put the mixture into the easy-squeeze dispenser and then draw the coconut leaves.
4. In a rameken, combine yogurt with butterfly pea concentrate, add the turmeric and blend completely adding more of the butterfly pea until you reach your desired color and consistency. Put in an easy-squeeze dispenser and draw the ocean. Use a toothpick or a stick to create waves.
