  2. Yum! All of those sound fantastic. My smoothie game is quite boring these days. You just gave me loads of ideas to jazz my next one up… starting by making a bowl instead of a generic smoothie. I think my kiddos are going to be very happy net time I pull out the frozen berries 🙂

    Believe it or not I’ve never had a smoothie bowl before! I love starting the day with a smoothie, but I love the idea of being able to load the bowl up with fun additions like big chunks of fruit and nuts. Can’t wait to try these!
