Do you want the benefits of a green smoothie without all of the trips to the restroom? I did! I would occasionally substitute an acai bowl, but acai is not grown in Michigan. First you need a base of fresh or frozen fruit and some greens. Frozen bananas work well, but again – not grown in Michigan. So, I’ve been playing around with some Michigan fruits that I have on hand. If you are using some frozen fruit, the result will be thick (this is the desired effect). If you are using all fresh fruit, add a sprinkle of chia seed and it will set up over ten minutes so you can eat it with a spoon.
I’ve named them Blast Bowls, because I blast them in the high-speed blender. I came up with the name while emailing a photo of one to myself. My Iphone auto-corrected my slang ‘bfast’ bowls into blast bowls. They are also a blast to decorate the tops with chopped fruit, nuts, and seeds. Give them a try!
