Summer Smoothie Bowl

I love having oats for breakfast, in different forms but Overnight Oatmeal Mugs have always been my favorite. And now I have another favorite-  Smoothie bowls! 

For the love of everything seasonal and local, I created this Summer smoothie bowl. The goodness of mangoes provides the perfect amount of micronutrients, oats make it fiber-rich, a scoop of Protein X for the protein boost and all this blended with coconut milk gives a dense and silky texture.

Blending the frozen mangoes, protein powder, and oats sans milk first gives a fair idea of how thick the mixture is and how much milk is required. Generally, 1-2 tbsps are enough here! If you like your smoothie to be extra rich, you can throw in a small frozen banana as well.

 

Tip: And always blend on low, ALWAYS!

This is a great breakfast option because:

  1. The heat in summers reduces the appetite for hot food. This Summer Smoothie Bowl is perfect for such days!

  2. It drastically cuts down on the time you spend in the kitchen.

  3. A smaller portion of this makes  a perfect mid-meal/dessert

  4. You can go crazy with customization- shredded unsweetened coconut, nut butters, nuts, seeds, chocolate chips and the list is endless!
