Recipe || Smoothie Bowl

Please tell me that I’m not the only one who needs incentives to get my to-do list accomplished? I’m trying to learn to pace myself in the middle of being productive and to create little bright pockets in the middle of long work days where I can let creativity flow and excite my tastebuds while I’m at it.

I’m amused about how much of the time my incentives are related to food or drinks. I recently bought a box of Outshine Fruit Bars and I keep them in my freezer, only allowing myself to have one on days where I run. See? It forces me to get out there and run because I know that later on that day, I can have one of those popsicles.


Over lunch time today, I experimented with something that I’ve been wanting to try.

Smoothie Bowl:

2 cups frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen pineapple
2 frozen bananas
3 fresh figs
1 six ounce can of pineapple juice
1 cup coconut cream
1 tsp. coconut flavoring

Blend in a blender, pour into bowls and top with whatever you like. I chose figs, coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, and mini chocolate chips because that’s what I happened to have on hand today.


Here’s to a happy, healthy and productive Tuesday! -Gretta

  1. Two things.
    1. I wish I just “happened to have” figs lying around.
    2. I’ve wondered how smoothie bowls work. Isn’t it a bit like trying to eat a whole bowl of milk with a little spoon? Or do you secretly employ a straw when the camera isn’t looking? Or maybe you speed eat them before they melt? Tell me these secrets!

    1. I don’t always have figs lying around but when I do, I make smoothie bowls. Actually, my mom is to thank for the figs. I’m still trying to learn to like them. 😉 The smoothie was frozen enough that I did eat it with a spoon. Once it started to melt, I drank the rest out of the bowl… But only when the camera wasn’t looking.
