They're for every damn day... but just HOW?!
First things first, THIS - what you see above - is not REAL. I don't think anyone has the time to create such a work of art as a part of their morning routine. That's why you buy these for $12, or, you scroll an Instagram feed just to feel mega-inadequate.
Fret not, because most my mornings look like a rushed masquerade of multi-tasking (and it isn't pretty).
I do calf raises while blow-drying my hair.
Lunges while brushing my teeth.
Reading while on the toilet. (Hey, let's be real)
Bottom line: I don't put paralleled lines of ingredients on my green smoothie bowls on the regular. I do it now because I only cared to lure you in with a pretty picture. (I win)
For the record - smoothie bowls taste just as good in a cup. If you're the hipster I think you are, then I know you have a few of these (mason jars) laying around.
"Smoothie bowl in a cup, you say? Well, isn't that just a smoothie?"
Don't give me your sass. I'm just asking you to embrace what it is you want from the food you eat.
For me, I want to pack my greens in a fashion that tastes good, requires minimal mess/time to eat, but still delivers on my deep-seeded longings - CRUNCH. TEXTURE. CHEWING.
I can't get that through a straw! So I eat my smoothie bowl in a mason jar with a spoon, thank you very much!
There's also no time for sprinkling. That's too delicate. Too tedious. It leaves particulates on my counter. Instead, I pre-make a "trail mix" of toppers for my smoothie drank*, then I scoop, dump, twist cap, go.
So instead of this:
You have this:
Below is the DL - so you can have your super bowl every damn day!

Tell me how to make it already.
This is an ideal item to make the beginning of each morning, or possibly as early as the night before. Any earlier, and I assure you your green smoothie base will not appear nearly as appetizing (separation, browning, off-flavors - don't overachieve here).
