Cherry Almond Smoothie Bowl

This is a delicious smoothie b with season's fresh and juicy cherries and almonds. Greek yogurt can be replaced with vegan yogurt to make a vegan version of this smoothie bowl.

I like cherries and almonds together. I make cherry almond pie during this season. It is my favorite! This smoothie will remind of the flavors of my pie with no sweeteners. The sweetness comes from the fruits alone in this smoothie bowl. It's all the more nutritious and healthy way to start your morning.

Memorial Day weekend always means cherry-picking for us. Going to the farm (well, finding a spot to park your car can be challenging sometimes, as the entire bay area will be on the farms picking cherries), and enjoying the time between the tree to tree  is always fun. Nature has solutions to relax everyone. The fun always doubles when you go as a gang with friends and families. The next challenge walking into the farm is finding "the tree" which is untouched and loaded with cherries  (everywhere you can see people picking the ripe red ruby spheres). Kids get excited picking them (also popping a couple into their mouth) and filling the buckets. You can hear, "Hey, there's lots on this side or this tree is abundant with cherries". It is the same exciting event for me for any U-pick trips. Though I have my own backyard gardening, I enjoy going out to pick in farms too!

So after a trip to cherry farms, I line up my favorite recipes and have fun, of course my schedule becomes crazy when you try new recipes too! But that's part of the fun exploring new things, making memories and foremost of all having fun!

If you are like me, you'll never say no to smoothie bowls. I prefer smoothie bowls for breakfast during summer months while a steaming bowl of Masala Oats or Apple Cinnamon Steel-cut Oats or Ginger Bread Oats would be my choice during colder weather.

Here are a few smoothie bowls that you'll also love the most!
