Kiwi, strawberry, banana and almond milk smoothie bowl is a smooth way to refill your vitamins level and start the day fresh. With an extra topping of almond and maple sugar flakes. A Lactose-free smoothie.
I confess… I received a smoothie machine for christmas, and this is my first smoothie bowl ever. Nor did I do many simple smoothies either… So being fairly new at it, I did an “obvious” choice of fruits, a always favorite of mine; sharp kiwi with juicy strawberry and to calm things down a banana! I often see those beautiful bowls online and want to plunge right in, well this time, I finally did my own and did plunge head first in it after the photo session. Simple but divine! There is a whole lot to explore in the smoothie world… 2017 will be my smoothie year, you’ll see lots more of them on my blog. A great way and healthy way to start the day and/or the year!
The deal with smoothies is they can get boring… too smooth. You need to made it more inviting or exciting… that’s why I believe those “smoothie bowls” got popular this year. It’s always great to find a contrasting texture to a monotone recipe. To make the smoothie the bed of a bunch of beautiful toppings is key! Incorporating the fruity bites and almonds and maple sugar flakes it help to upgrade it to a fantastic smoothie instead of a boring one. Because we also eat with our eyes!
I’ve used fresh fruits for this recipe, although frozen fruits would work too. Omit the ice cubes if the frozen fruits are used and give the blender session an extra minute to make sure no frozen bites are left. The almond milk and all the fruits have enough of sweetness to it, so I didn’t needed extra sugar (honey or else).
So let’s blend some fruits!
