Miracles do happen!
I would like to say that I have spent the past 6 months taking photography classes, brushing up my blogging skills, researching recipes, experimenting on new recipes, etc.
I’ve been chillin’.
The recipe is pretty simple and you can improvise the recipe depending on what ingredients you have stashed in your freezer and refrigerator.
I use the following:
1 whole orange peeled (Not in photo. What was I thinking?)
1/2 cup nut milk or homemade yogurt
1 teaspoon maca powder
2 handfuls of spinach
1 handful of frozen bananas
1 handful of frozen pineapple (only because I’m out of my frozen peaches from the fall. Sad.)
a ton of pomegranate arils
cocoa nibs (another obsession)
Any other toppings you so desire
I begin by layering all of the ingredients in a blender.
I start with the liquid then add in the orange, avocado, maca powder, spinach, then frozen fruit.
Blend until smooth and creamy.
Top with your favorite fruits and nuts.
I have seriously purchased 4 (12 oz) bags of cocoa nibs. I LOVE the bit and crunch along with the bitterness of the raw cacao.
I have decided that one cannot use too many pomegranate arils. It’s just not possible. I have been having a difficult time finding pomegranates lately. I don’t know what I will do if I can’t find them.
A sprinkle of granola is completely optional. I love the crunch so I used someChocolate Almond Coconut Granola that I made. I substituted hazelnuts in place of almonds. Fabulous!
We have had a lot of snowfall in Utah this winter and the temperature and been pretty darn cold. You would think I would come home and have a steaming hot bowl of oatmeal. I still have my smoothie bowl after a cold run with the girls. I just start with a cup of hot chocolate to warm me up first.
Avocado Smoothie Bowl
Avocado makes your morning smoothie creamy like ice cream. It also adds healthy fats to keep you full.

P.S. I need to polish my photography skills. I can’t believe how much I have forgotten. For this post I played around with a couple of lenses…I’m sure you noticed that. Like they say, practice makes perfect and I am completely out of practice. Shame on me.
