WILD Blueberry Vanilla Smoothie Bowl / by lee tilghman

Rejoice! For we are in the depths of summer, people. This is my favorite time of year for weather reasons and for food reasons. This farmer's market bowl was inspired by summer flavors and all the produce I saw at the market this week including wild blueberries, local bee pollen, avocado, passion fruit, vanilla bean, and more.

Recipe:

 

  • 1/3 ripe avocado (frozen)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 tsp organic fresh vanilla bean (if you can find it! if not, extract will do just fine)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until thick and creamy.  I put all of the ingredients in a Bernscott Pottery clay bowl from Ojai. It has special meaning. 

Toppings:
