Waking up and having a bowl of paradise for breakfast, this is exactly what you need on a hot summer day. Its as easy as a smoothie, you just add some extra fruit and your ready to dig in. This tropical smoothie bowl reminds me of my days back on the island, with my toes in the sand and a Piña-colada in my hand.
Growing up on an island means eating lots of fresh fruits and drinking cocktails on the beach of course. This smoothie bowl is easy to make and will give you a refreshing feeling, especially now for the summer. The smoothie it self has only 3 ingredients and really tastes like a virgin piña-colada.
As an island girl I’m kinda obsessed with coconuts, palmtrees, watermelons and the beauty of all: pineapple. I like to have lots of fruit in my kitchen and I always try to make it as convenient as possible for my self. A lot of people avoid the whole pineapple and go for the ready-packed packages that are super expensive. Most of the time you can get the whole fruit for the same price which gives you 3 or 4 times the amount of fruit then the cut-up ones. When I buy a pineapple, I normally cut it up immediately and refrigerate it in an air-tight container. This way I can easily grab a few on the go and have them ready whenever I want to snack.
This is exactly what happend the morning of the smoothie bowl. Since the pineapple was already diced, half of the work was done. An other little tip is to always have some frozen bananas in the freezer. This is super handy for smoothies and homemade ice cream (recipe coming soon).
