OH MY GAH, what a weekend! It was so much fun and went by way too quickly. I’ll be posting about my weekend in New York throughout the week, but I can sum it up in just a few words: friends, ice cream, guacamole, walking, margaritas, rooftop bars, ice cream, shopping, laughter, ice cream, cold press juice, selfies, and did I say ice cream? Lots of ice cream. It was truly a wonderful weekend and I’m hoping that I don’t wait so long before going back again.
Though I was only gone for the weekend, I certainly did indulge myself. I’m not mad AT ALL, but I am craving my regular diet again, starting with this smoothie bowl.
Smoothie bowls are awesome for a million reasons. I personally like them because eating a smoothie with a spoon somehow seems more filling than drinking it through a straw ANNND because toppings galore! Seriously—so.many.toppings, almost like a fro-yo bar. …almost.
I was super stoked when Bai reached out to me because A) I love their products, B) antioxidants for everyone and C) they offer really unique and delicious flavors. This particular recipe uses Gimbi Pink Graprefruit, but let me back it up and tell you my feelings on grapefruit.
Here’s the truth. Are you ready? It’s not my favorite fruit ever. GASP, I know. In fact, the first time I ever tried it I spit it out. Granted I was seven years old, but that’s beside the point. So why the heck am I posting a grapefruit recipe? Because I want to like it and I do like it when it’s mixed with the right ingredients. What can I say—my tastebuds are strange. This smoothie bowl is definitely still grapefruit-y, but it’s not SO MUCH GRAPEFRUIT that you feel like you’re choking on a grapefruit. Ya feel me?
Besides actual grapefruit, the bowl includes Bai5, a banana, strawberries, oats, syrup, cashews and a couple of mint leaves. I never realized how versatile mint leaves were, but they totally are! I opted to top my bowl with coconut flakes, orange slices, pineapple chunks, and hemp seeds, but you could honestly top it with anything that pairs well with grapefruit. The options are unlimited and the bowl is beautiful and colorful and fruity and everything a breakfast should be. Plus, smoothie bowls may just be the best food to Instagram (in my humble opinion). They’re just so fun! Step your smoothie bowl game up with GRAPEFRUIT deliciousness ASAP. I pinky promise that even the non-grapefruit lovers will love it.
