Super Green Smoothie Bowl

This post is sponsored by Bounty Advanced Paper Towels

Foodblog (17 of 20)

Of all the fun foods that Mazen and I prepare together, smoothies are his favorite. Most likely because he loves pushing the blender buttons!

Anyone who has ever cooked with kids knows that there will inevitably be a spill, in one way or another. Dripping sauces, sticky fingers or flinging sunflower butter flung everywhere – kids always manage to spread a little mess around. But of course, that’s all part of the fun!

A Costco opened in Charlottesville this year, and so Mazen and I took a trip to join it. This was perfect timing because I needed to get some Bounty Advanced Paper Towels for this recipe! Select-A-Size for the win!

While sunflower butter ended up on the cabinets and on the back of Mazen’s PJs, my little helper knew exactly how to clean it up.

We always turn our smoothies into popsicles, so this Super Green Smoothie Bowl is also a popsicle recipe! I let Mazen have popsicles morning, noon and snacktime because ours are always packed with superfoods and have no added sugar. This one in particular has two cups of greens and half an avocado – super green!

I love to serve my smoothies in bowls – eating them with a spoon feels so luxurious!

This one’s texture is thick and pudding-like thanks to lots of oats, chia seeds and all that creamy avocado.

Suns Out, Guns Out

I am debating what to do about the ridiculous tan line I acquired at the beach. I was wearing yoga pants on a 60’F, cloudy day, and somehow managed to get badly burned on my ankles and feet. It’s totally my fault for skimping on the lower body sunscreen! Add in the soccer sock tan I’m rockin’ on the top half and I now have zebra-striped legs. Should I use different SPFs? Wear calf-length socks? Use self tanner in the middle? Try to tan the middle? What do you think?

Mazen and I made strawberry smoothies for breakfast this week, with the strawberries we picked last weekend. I threw in the whole strawberries, green tops and all. They have to be good for you, right? #greensmoothie

Officer Mazen via Snapchat! We just love checking to see what the new selfie filters are each day – some of them are just insane!

Have you ever tried home fermenting? I’m hoping to take a stab at pickles this summer, when local cucumbers are abundant.

The new brand Mortier Pilon makes this gorgeous glass crock that comes all ready to make fermented foods like pickles. Unlike the traditional clay crocks, this one is clear and lightweight, making the process all the more enjoyable. Have you ever pickled at home? I would love to hear your tips.

Sarah makes the BEST salads!! Mazen and I went over for lunch and we had these salads packed with greens, pesto-roasted vegetables, avocados and almonds.

And for dinner this week we went to Brazos Tacos with a bunch of our friends! The yam taco is my favorite there, but the pork belly special with pickled watermelon was killer too!
