Mango Smoothie Bowl / by lee tilghman

A smoothie bowl is one of my favorite ways to start the day­ why? The possibilities are endless, and the surface of your smoothie bowl is like a blank canvas for you to paint upon. The toppings and flavor combinations are unlimited. I love heading to my local farmer’s market and picking out fresh, seasonal produce to incorporate into my smoothie bowls. The process of building a smoothie bowl in the morning helps me to slow down and take the time to nourish my body and mind rather than rushing out the door.

This mango smoothie is a classic, refreshing bowl and one of my favorite rotations.
