Vegan Recipe: Super Summer Smoothie Bowl

Super Summer Smoothie Bowl

This refreshing Super Summer Smoothie Bowl is big enough to share, and starts with a base of blended frozen cherries and frozen bananas, and finished with a colorful array of watermelon, cantaloupe, fresh bananas, and berries. Feel free to use any fruits you have on hand, because it’s as flexible as you are.

Ingredients, Makes 1 to 2 servings

1 cup frozen cherries
2 frozen bananas
few splashes of water (or juice), as needed to blend

Toppings
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.

Instructions

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.
