It’s finally Spring (really, it is) and it time to change-up the breakfast options for the warmer temps. Admittedly, we aren’t breakfast people but we make a conscious effort to”break the fast” from the night before and smoothie bowls have become a “thing”.
I’ve been wanting to try a smoothie bowl for a while but it was a hard sell when the high temperature struggled to reach 50 degrees on any given day. So, I took the plunge recently and tried one from our favorite Hawaiian Poke restaurant.
Each bowl starts with a base of your choice; I started with an Acai berry base, then all the fruit (see below). It was heaven in a bowl – and it was the small.
Recently, I got the Pitaya based bowl and again ❤ ❤ ❤ (below):
This will be my breakfast/brunch “treat yo’self” treat for the Spring and Summer.
I am making a conscious effort to be “kinder” to my body by reducing animal meat and opting for more plant-based products. I recently purchased this and I must admit it definitely had the appearance of pulled pork, however, the texture was not quite there. It tasted a little “rubbery” and I’m sure that was due to the tapioca starch used. You will definitely have to work with spices and your favorite sauce to get the “mouth feel” of pulled pork; it is possible.
I added a stir fry blend of veggies that included red, green, yellow peppers and onions; also our favorite BBQ sauce Sweet Baby Rays (see below).
My “meatatarian” enjoyed it, so that was a win. Did it remind me of pulled pork, it did in appearance. Would I repurchase it, probably not. So the quest for a “pork-less” substitute continues . . .until next time.
