Mango-Kiwi-Avocado Green Smoothie Bowl

I have a month until I’m done with my undergraduate degree. I know everyone says this all the time, but it really is crazy how fast time flies. I remember coming to this small Scottish town when I was seventeen and in my last year of high school, thinking about whether I wanted to hop the pond and study in some cold, rainy place. There are moments when I question my decision and the degree I have chosen, but when I think about it- really, really think about it- I have had such an amazing time. I’ve met some really cool people, including my beardy ginger man, all with interesting stories and opinions. I’ve also met some not-so-cool people, who continue to be a daily reminder of who I don’t want to be. I’ve been taught by some of the brightest academics in their fields, and the best part is getting to ask them weird questions they probably never thought they’d be asked. I’ve participated in the craziest university tradition ever, which was a weekend I barely survived. It ended with an extremely fun foam fight which tasted funny and hurt my eyes. (Raisin Weekend. Mm hmm.) I’ve  jumped into the North Sea at sunrise in May with all the other crazies that attend this university. I’ve enjoyed the best of Scottish summers: where the sun is always shining, it’s pleasantly breezy, and you can go for a walk with an ice-cream cone. I’ve become best friends with the man who sells almond olives at the farmer’s market. The list goes on… this seaside town has captured my heart with a full force and I’ve fallen in love, and I am so sad to have to leave it after I graduate. The only thing left to do now is to make the most of my time with the people who mean the most to me. And, well, I guess I should finish the dissertation, too. (But if I don’t I won’t graduate and I might get to spend another year here?! Just kidding.)

Anyway. Here is a big ol’ smoothie bowl that has magical powers to perk me up after long, reflective mornings like today. It’s still raining, but I have a bowl of liquid sunshine all to myself! I added some avocado in today for a creamier texture. Don’t be scared of the taste- it does more for the texture than it does for taste. I know some people are concerned with feeling full after a smoothie for breakfast, but trust me: if you are having the two servings you are supposed to be having in place of food as the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge suggests, you won’t have this problem. It’s a lot of liquid with lots of good stuff, and I am always stuffed afterwards!

    Did you have any of your smoothie bowl ingredients frozen pre-blending?

    p.s. I’m doing the green smoothie challenge too, warrior lady! Favorite addition so far: fruity black tea frozen in an ice cube tray for easy blending. :)

      No, I didn’t actually! I’ve been meaning to chop things up and keep them in my freezer, but I haven’t had the time yet. And I haven’t tried adding tea yet- I’ve been thinking about adding green tea though! Fruity black tea sounds so so tasty. Big hugs to you!!

      Thank you Leigha! Avocados are so lovely in smoothies- they give it a wonderful creaminess. I also like to add bananas, soaked oats, or coconut milk if I feel like making my smoothies creamier. Thanks for stopping by! Big love xx
