This refreshing Super Summer Smoothie Bowl starts with a base of blended frozen cherries and frozen bananas, and finished with a colorful array of watermelon, cantaloupe, fresh bananas, and berries.
You might like to try mango, peaches, or plums, or add nuts, seeds, unsweetened coconut, or granola for crunch. Your kids will love this for breakfast, and I think it’s great for dessert on a hot summer night, too.
Use whatever fruits you have on hand, because it’s as flexible as you are, and big enough to share.
SUPER SUMMER SMOOTHIE BOWL
1 to 2 servings
1 cup frozen cherries
2 frozen bananas
few splashes of water (or juice), as needed to blend
Watermelon, cantaloupe, fresh bananas, blackberries, and raspberries, or any fresh fruits you like! For crunch, add sliced almonds, chopped walnuts, pumpkin seeds, unsweetened coconut, or crunchy granola.
Place cherries and frozen banana in a high-powered blender (such as a Vitamix). Add a splash or two of water as needed to blend. Process first on low, and gradually work up to high speed until mixture is completely smooth.
Pour into a bowl, flattening the top. Garnish with colorful fresh fruit, nuts, granola, etc., and enjoy immediately.
