It is starting to really feel like spring around here. Yesterday was a warm and pretty perfect 78ºF here in San Diego, and today is pretty much the same. The nights are warmer, and the chilly bite is finally subsiding.

How’s it feeling around you guys? Starting to warm up and feel like spring just yet?! I still can’t believe it’s already mid-April – warm summer days are approaching fast!

With warm days, comes cool treats :) my warm morning oats are getting traded in for smoothie bowls, and I’m not mad about it. Smoothie bowls are one of my favorite things ever, and they’re one “trendy” food item that I’ll always defend.

Some people say they’re lame and you should just drink your smoothie, but they’re missing the most important things about a smoothie bowl:

First, texture: smoothie bowls > smoothies because they’re THICK and creamy and almost ice cream like – any way I can have “ice cream” for breakfast is a win in my book.

And of course, TOPPINGS! I live for toppings. I get so bored with things that have no texture, so adding crunchy bits is key for me. I load up all the toppings.

This almond chocolate coconut smoothie bowl is a new fave for sure, thanks to all the goodness both IN and ON it. Making up the super creamy smoothie part, we’ve got bananas, almond butter, cacao powder, and Silk’s new almond-based Dark Chocolate Coconut Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative.

I tasted the new almond yogurt from Silk at Expo and promptly fell in love – it’s so tasty, and since dairy has been giving me some trouble lately, it’s a new staple in my fridge. My cousin also recently found out he was dairy-free, and my aunt stocked up on these too. She mentioned to me that she’s been eating them all the time too, and is totally in love. It makes the bowl super creamy and adds a touch of chocolate coconut flavor 😍

I also love loading up my smoothie bowls with superfood goodness – I added collagen powder, maca powder, and chia seeds to this one. These are optional, but if you’ve got them around, I recommend you toss them in for an extra nutrition boost.

Now, back to toppings. I always go a little crazy here, because texture is our friend. This one’s got banana slices, flaked coconut, chocolate granola, chia seeds, dark chocolate covered chia seeds, and of course, a big drizzle of almond butter. A drizzle of coconut butter would be good too. Go crazy with whatever you’ve got on hand! This is the fun part :)

And…stop, admire your work, and then devour immediately. This chocolatey, coconutty smoothie bowl tastes a bit like dessert for breakfast, and that’s always a good thing in my book. It’s lusciously creamy and loaded up with so much goodness – you’re gonna love this one! Enjoy.
