Banana and Coconut Smoothie Bowl with Chia, Muesli and Pomegranate Seeds

When it comes to eating have you ever thought about the fact that all good things come in a bowl? Ok, it’s true, some really good stuff comes in a bun (mmmm, hamburgers and hot dogs) but dishes like soups, chilis, mac and cheese, pastas, stews, risottos, all arrive on your placemat in a deep dish and just scream comfort. (They also scream “I’m eating this on the couch in my PJs” but I probably shouldn’t embarrass Ceri with that little fact.) And don’t forget ice cream. That’s awesome in a bowl. Wait, actually, ice cream is better in a cone.

There are also lots of great morning meals that come in a bowl. Take oatmeal. Or cereal. But lately we’ve been talking a lot about how, when it comes to breakfast, cereal is not necessarily the healthiest option for you or your family. We know what you’re going to say: “But it’s so easy–just pour and eat.” However, we’ve tossed our favourite breakfast in a bowl and consider it pretty darn snappy too. Ladies and gentleman, please welcome the Smoothie Bowl to SPC.

If you put the blender on the counter the night before, throw the peeled bananas in the freezer and leave the rest of the non-perishables on the counter, in the morning, you’ve got breakfast in about the same time it takes you to pour your Raisin Bran in the bowl and pick out all those damn raisins. (Am I the only one that does that?) Plus this bowl of goodness is going to be a way earthier option. Sorry sugary, processed cereal. You’re still our nostalgic favourite.
