Memorial Day Smoothie Bowl

Burgers, barbecue, and beer: these are the three quintessential B’s for the perfect Memorial Day summer cookout. Not everyone has a grill though, or has the time/incentive to cook. What if you just want to sleep in on Memorial Day and wake up to a light and simple breakfast that doesn’t require much prep work?

Smoothie bowls are the perfect solution to such a dilemma. Vitamin-packed and delicious, they’re a sweet way to begin a lazy summer day. For my particular Memorial Day-themed smoothie bowl, I used the following ingredients:

  1. half a mango
  2. half a large box of strawberries (about 10)
  3. guava juice
  4. various berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries) and chia seeds for garnish

These are the steps to creating the perfect smoothie bowl:

  1. Dice the mango and halve the strawberries.
  2. Pulse the fruit chunks in a blender on medium and add a splash of guava juice.
  3. Pour the mixture into a bowl. It should be a thick but still liquid consistency.
  4. Garnish with toppings as you please. The more the better!
  5. Enjoy your delicious and healthy smoothie bowl!
