This berry, mint and honeydew smoothie bowl is just perfect for starting your day.
Please don’t ask me why I felt I had to make, photograph, then even post such an extremely kitschy recipe. I really don’t know why. But I feel ashamed too. Probably I just spend too much time on Instagram and Pinterest…it’s dangerous. However, this smoothie bowl is delicious, nutritious and makes an awesome breakfast or afternoon snack, so it’s actually a pretty good bowl.
Ok, to be honest I know what made me make a bowl like this. I got a melon baller from my parents a while ago. I thought I’ll never use it, but then one day I woke up feeling an extreme urge to use it right that moment. So I went to a nearby supermarket and got a melon. Cut it in half and started to scoop. Oh my goodness, that satisfaction I felt while scooping that melon, I can’t even explain it to you…..and that’s all it took to get addicted to a melon baller. True story.
For a week or two I was busy making those balls every single day for after dinner snacks, then my boyfriend once casually mentioned, that he thinks it’s kinda stupid, because it takes so much time to use the melon baller but it doesn’t give anything extra (according to him, pfff). He said something like: it’s okay to use it in certain situations, when it makes sense, so it looks nice, etc.,…..and from here on I didn’t listen anymore. Okay, so you need something pretty, right? Then you get something pretty. Please don’t think I can’t make mega pretty things with the melon baller. You will get the prettiest creation ever with melon balls.
Unfortunately I didn’t manage to make the prettiest creation ever, but I managed to make a borderline pretty bowl, which is good enough for me. However, it tastes amazing, summery and refreshing, so I’m happy at the end.
Of course, you can make this recipe without the melon bowls and drink it as a smoothie without all the crazy and unnecessary decoration, but what would be life without the decoration, right? This recipe would then only take about 3 minutes to make, but instead this way you can play with it for 15-20 minutes. So enjoy and have fun (and please don’t judge)!
