Smoothie bowl is now more than just a new favourite or some might have labeled it as an obsession for me but they are actually not just a favourite breakfast or dessert- they’ve officially became a creative outlet much like a canvas to paint my kinda art. I mean the fun to design the top of the bowl is satisfying and really getting my artistic brain cells working hard. I mostly put in a lot of thought from my styling and plating and it is no doubt that desserts and sweet food makes the prettiest appearance. So, the gorgeous toppings aside. The base are the ones that’s really challenging because it is what determines the taste, texture, colour, and most importantly nutritious.
Speaking of nutrients, I made a cherry-based smoothie bowl when cherries were in season some time ago. Cherries are known to be loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols that help fight disease, on top of the rich vitamin C and fiber. Being a natural food source of melatonin, which can help to improve sleep, cherries are all rounded essentially good for us. Though, I wouldn’t recommend excessive consumption because they are also fairly high in sugar. Those who followed me through my journey on Instagram would also know that I recommend moderate intakes on top of matching ingredients in all my bowls.
Here is a good tip to mellow the sweet in your smoothie bowls. Use bananas that are slightly under ripe and include some oats for a thicker consistency. Not only that would help with the taste, the oats would give the extra fill to last longer throughout the morning.
Enjoy this cherry bowl recipe. And even though I didn’t decorate them much yet when the photos are taken, I include the recommended toppings so maybe you all can try decorating yours and tag me on Instagram?
