Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I am so glad the weekend is almost here. I caught a cold last weekend, and I’ve spent most of this week feeling rotten. I’m feeling a lot better, and I’m excited to rest and relax this weekend and just enjoy not being sick!

I will say, when I’m sick, I do try to get as many vitamins as possible, hoping it will speed the cold along. And I absolutely adore smoothies for that purpose. Being able to pack those antioxidants and vitamin c in is perfect! Lately, I’ve been seeing more and more photos of smoothie bowls, and now that I’ve tried it? I’m sold. It’s all the deliciousness of a smoothie with toppings!

Really, you can add anything to the top. I checked what I had in my pantry, and so I topped this one with a banana, some sprouted pumpkin seeds (my new love!), and some coconut that I toasted. I’m excited to try out more variations, but I’ll include the recipe of what I did for this one! Modify to your own tastes, and honestly, just throw some good stuff on top. Eat it up with a spoon and congratulate yourself on being healthy.
