The Lost Virgin SMOOTHIE BOWL Recipe
I lost my smoothie-bowl-creating virginity this morning, so lets all raise up our smoothies for a toast! Okay, but for real, that’s why I’m calling this the Lost Virgin Smoothie Bowl. The flavors weren’t planned; what happened was I bought all of these frozen fruits with intentions of playing with the flavors, but in a week I’m leaving for the summer to work with a non-profit organization and needed to use up all of the fruit. So, what I did was throw all of it together in a blender.
Keep in mind that if you eat this entire recipe, it is calorie-dense. Its a large portion, so just keep this in mind. You are very welcome to seperate this into multiple servings for a couple of days.

Before you actually make your smoothie bowl, the easiest way to get a kick ass smoothie (or so Google says) is to freeze all of your fruit beforehand, so that’s what I did. Really all this does is save you from having to use ice.
Next I separated my fruits out based on whether I think they would make pretty colors together or not. For the first one, just blend two bananas. Its always nice to be basic. When you’re blending, make sure to only do pulses. Add some water (about 1/2 cup) to make the texture smooth and creamy. Once done, pour into your jar or bowl. This will be your base color.
Step three, blend your kale, blueberries, and 6 strawberries. This will give you the darker purple/pink color. The more blueberries you add, the more purple it will look. Again, add about 1/2 cup of water and blend until creamy. Pour this ontop of your base color in whichever pattern you prefer. I just poured it on the side, because again, that’s how all the famous Instagram foodies do it.
Step four is to blend the rest of your 6 strawberries, mandarin oranges, and pineapple. This gives it a tropical flavor that I’m obssessed with. This would have tasted really good if it were topped with kiwi as well. Add your 1/2 cup water and blend until creamy. Do whatever you want with your design; I just added it to the opposite side of the bowl.
Once you’re done, you can add your toppings. I added 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, but it would have also been really amazing with kiwi.
