Green Smoothie Bowl topped with kiwi and banana in a white bowl

My mind was really cluttered this week. It wasn’t exactly a hairy week by any means, but my brain was full of random things vying for my attention. There was competition of the olympic sort as my mind shifted from work, to email, conference calls, newscasts, the landscaping project underway, my son’s spelling test, mapping out summer camps, my sister’s birthday, making it to the gym on time, dentist appointments, cleaning the house since apparently we seem to be one of the only people left on the planet who scrubs our own toilets these days, to Easter, and oh, my mother in law is coming in a week (yay!). A standard week, but for some reason, as I forced myself to go to yoga, I could literally feel each one of those things exit my brain, at least for one hour.

Anyway, I’m back from the gym, and I’m snacking on my newest obsession. You know how I love my green smoothies, and you also know how I adore Açaí Berry Bowls. Well, right now I’m obsessed with mashing the two together: this Green Smoothie Bowl is so good, I’ve been having them for breakfast, and sometimes even lunch!

The base of the green smoothie bowl is kefir, which I have been loving a lot lately, a good handful of fresh spinach, frozen pineapples, mangoes and ripe bananas. A few seconds in the blender, and I top it with more bananas, fresh kiwis, chia seeds and my absolute favorite shredded coconut. It’s so filling and refreshing, especially after a hard workout.

      I think if I could live on a tropical island surrounded by kiwis and coconuts, I would be very content. Guess that speaks to my heritage, eh? And yes, I’m on such a kefir kick these days! Isn’t it great? Have a wonderful Passover, Brian!

    What a magnificent breakfast! And I can totally relate to yoga being the only respite my mind has from racing 100 mph!

      Yes, indeed, Fiona, thank you for sharing with me and letting me know. It’s always tough when people use images without asking for permission, or worse, without providing credit. I appreciate your help!

    What kind of kefir should we use? Aren’t there different flavors?
