This simple Berry Peach Smoothie Bowl will get your day started right! It's sweet, creamy and full of good for you fruits. Hello, summer in a bowl.
I hate to bring this up, but I share what's going on in my life,...do your kids play Pokemon Go? It's taking over the world right now and my boys love it. It's a game where you have to collect Pokemon in the real world. They take their phones outside and when a Pokemon is near, their device vibrates. The Pokemon shows up on a real map of the area. It's kind of cool.
This may sound pitiful but because of this game, my 13-year old has taken walks with me, gone to the grocery store with me and even helped me on a run to the town dump. I remind you, he is a teenager and this stuff doesn't come easy. I am grateful for the few moments alone in the car with him! He's been on his bike and running around our neighborhood all week. I love that it's getting him off the couch and out of the house. Thanks Pokemon...I think.
I may be cursing Pokemon Go in a few weeks, so stay tuned.
You already know how much I love smoothie bowls like this Superfoods Acai Bowl. There's something so fulfilling about eating a creamy smoothie with a spoon. This Berry Peach Smoothie tastes like dessert for breakfast. My kids liked it without the toppings. No goji berries for them! The best thing about smoothie bowls may be that you have a wide open space for toppings. Endless possibilities!
I try to throw chia seeds in whenever I can. They are super good for you. To learn more about all the amazing health benefits of chia seeds check out this in-depth article from Well-Being Secrets.
