Summer Berry Smoothie Bowl
It took me a verrrry long time to accept the idea of a smoothie bowl. I mean, it took me ages to try gazpacho (Yummy btw). This Summer Berry Smoothie bowl may have helped me get into cold soups a little.
However as a general rule, i’m not about no cold soup. Who wants cold soup anyway? After all, isn’t soup meant to be all about warmth and comfort? Isn’t it a rule to wear socks and some sort of oversized jumper whilst slurping (I’m referring to my husband here, he just LOVES to slurp whilst i clench my teeth) on soup? A smoothie bowl is essentially a fruit soup. Let’s not pretend it’s anything else. However what a fab soup! I love how you can just mix it up and throw in any combination of the delicious fruit that we are blessed to have access to all year round. A summer berry smoothie is deliciously sweet, healthy and filling. The other great thing about it is you can make it with any milk of your choice, be that goats/coconut/almond. You can even replace the honey with agave nectar. By the way when i say filling, i mean really filling. Like basically, i had mine as a main meal and didn’t eat after that which is saying something because i can eat.. a lot.
This summer berry smoothie is my favourite to date. It isn’t too tart as berry smoothies quite often are. I love the surprise peanut butter hidden under the cherries. I love how creamy it is! I love that i can top it with whatever i have in my fridge at the time. (Btw, Would highly recommend the cherries!).
The best thing about it is, that it is really quick to make. Hope you enjoy it as much as i did. If you do make it, don’t forget to tag #tiffinandtea on social media so i can check it out!
