This smoothie bowl has been waiting to be posted for a loooooong, long time – I’ve been making this one for a WHILE, and it’s definitely one of my favorite smoothie bowls to date.

The only reason it’s taken so long to get posted? I wanted fresh cherries for the photos. And they’re finally here, so here we go!

There’s a smoothie/juice bar here in San Diego called Beaming – the first one opened pretty close to where my parents live, and it’s been a family fave since it opened. They have SO many amazing juices and smoothies and the best HUGE acai bowls. Everything with loaded with all the superfoods and it’s all super healthy – no refined sugars, gluten, or dairy to worry about.

But…it’s also super expensive. My favorite smoothie from there costs $11 – it definitely adds up, and it’s probably good I don’t live too close to it anymore. That favorite smoothie though? I CRAVE it.

So when I was living in Seattle, I sought to recreate it. It’s called the Euphoria smoothie, and it’s got cherries, bananas, homemade almond milk, a date, coconut butter…and some other goodies.

I made it pretty similarly to the original, but with a few adaptionations – and of course, I made a smoothie bowl, because everything’s better with toppings on top! You can definitely make it as a smoothie though – just add enough almond milk to make it the consistency you prefer.

I added some collagen and maca, two of my favorite beautifying superfoods, to give an extra nutrient boost. Cherries are full of antioxidants, and are super awesome for your skin and hair. This is pretty much a beauty boosting smoothie bowl!

As usual, I went a little nuts with my toppings. I loaded on fresh cherries, sliced bananas, some chocolate granola, chia seeds, flaked coconut, and of course, a big drizzle of almond butter. My toppings were the bomb, but use whatever is convenient and sounds good to you.

Digging into this smoothie bowl, made at home, gives me so much satisfaction to get some many of my favorite flavors…and I’m not shelling out $11! It’s my kind of breakfast perfection, for sure. Especially with the coming summer heat, nothing is more refreshing than a cool and fruity smoothie bowl. Hope you’ll give this one a go – enjoy!
