Sweet-Tart Smoothie Bowl #SundayFunday #GlobalSmoothieDay

Today the #SundayFunday bloggers are sharing recipes ahead of October 3rd's Global Smoothie Day. Wendy from A Day in the Life on the Farm is hosting and asked us to share a smoothie of our choosing. Here's the line-up...

Now you can make smoothies that you serve with a straw. But I prefer to make smoothie bowls that I serve with a spoon. These are thicker than smoothies and a fun way to play with different toppings and textures. I make mine with frozen fruit and top it with fresh fruits and homemade granola. You can watch me make my Easy Granola on the CulinaryCam YouTube Channel.

These smoothie bowls are easy to make, nutrient-dense, and so flexible to get creative. This bowl gets its sweet from the berry smoothie half and tart from the mango banana half.

Berry Smoothie

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup (or honey if you prefer)
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds

Tropical Smoothie

  • 1 banana, sliced (approximately 1 cup)
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (or honey if you prefer)
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

To make each smoothie, place all of the ingredients in a blender and blitz on high speed until completely smooth, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Occasionally stop the blender and scrape down the sides. If the mixture is too thick or not blending well, feel free to add 1 Tablespoon of liquid at a time. Taste and adjust as needed. 

Spoon the smoothies into a bowl. I like to do half and half.

For Serving (as photographed above)

  • sliced figs
  • passionfruit, halved
  • sliced kiwi
  • fresh berries
  • granola
  • sliced blood oranges
Other Topping Suggestions
  • avocado, sliced
  • fresh mango, sliced
  • sliced bananas
  • anything you want!

That's a wrap for my offering for #SundayFunday's smoothie event. We'll be back next weekend as Amy of Amy's Cooking Adventures hosts Cook Like a Viking for Leif Erikson Day! I hope to get some inspiration for my upcoming Jolabokaflod - the Icelandic Christmas tradition of exchanging books and chocolate.

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
