Peachy Chia Smoothie Bowl

Peachy Chia Smoothie Bowl

The smoothie bowl was inspired by two things.

1. Juice Revolution. I had the Amazing Greens Acia Bowl on my birthday this year instead of cake (with coconut substituted for bananas). It’s THAT good!
2. Clean Food Dirty City. This woman has serious gorg-factor on her site. Check it out if you want to be wowed.

There is a certain satisfaction in eating a smoothie rather than drinking it. Using a spoon extends the smoothie moment. I tend to slurp it down in a matter of minutes when I drink through a straw. All of a sudden I hear that airy noise sound and it turns into a sad face. This bowl thing is a big win in my recipe book.

The fresh, spicy ginger in the recipe balances out the peach’s sweetness.
