Celebrating Summer Green Smoothie Bowl

Celebrating Summer Green Smoothie Bowl - fresh pear and mango mixed with greens, almond milk and a splash of lime for a refreshing summer treat.
Over the weekend, we had the first chilly day of fall here in Utah. The sunny days of summer turned into a blustery, gray, rainy day with a distinct bite of winter-is-coming feel to the wind. It happens every year, so I don’t know why I’m so taken aback every time it does. It always feels like someone betrayed me. Like I just got cheated out of something wonderful.

Don’t get me wrong, I welcome these days of pumpkin-spice-everything with open arms. I love the snow and the cozy feeling of curling up in front of the fire while the cold stings outside. But with that said, my mom and I, we like to be warm. We like color. We like sun. We like homegrown zucchini and farmer’s market peaches. Seasonal depression is a real thing people.

So, this smoothie bowl is rightfully named, because this morning, I decided to celebrate summer. This is what my morning looked like…

Just me and my smoothie bowl in the backyard.

I can’t decide if I’m happy I took my nail polish off yesterday or not. Those toes of mine aren’t a cute, bright, shiny red, but if I had left the polish on, you would have been wondering why the heck I hadn’t removed that old, chipped, polish yet. Who cares? I know you don’t. The important thing here, is that my BARE feet are in the GREEN grass and I ate this Celebrating Summer Green Smoothie Bowl OUTSIDE…and then ran inside because my toes were freezing.

It’s not summer anymore guys.

      Thank Bree! We totally get it…it can definitely be hard to start making your own food when you have a busy schedule, but once you get into the routine of it, it’s very doable and SO worth it! It’s much healthier and cheaper! Start with this smoothie bowl and go from there 🙂

      Thanks Pamela! And between you and me, the smoothie bowls may have to continue into the dead of winter 😉 Although I won’t be eating them barefoot in the backyard…
