Blueberry Week: Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

C – Sometimes a normal smoothie just isn’t enough.

I love smoothies. But, sometimes, they just don’t satisfy me completely. There is something about drinking my meal that doesn’t cut it. I need more. This smoothie bowls will do the trick. Load it with lots of granola and more fruit.

I love that I can add a little of everything in it to make a great breakfast.

This time I added some overripe bananas into the blend, then topped it off in the bowl with just a regularly ripe banana. I also added some of my favorite homemade granola, along with more blueberries.

It’s like cereal without the milk.

If you add a lot of ice to the smoothie the results are like ice cream. I really wished I added more ice or frozen the fruit before blending.

Just be careful not to burn out your blender, if it isn’t a high-powered one. Ours isn’t a high powered blender, so fresh fruits worked best to take care of the motor.
