My fridge has been overflowing with fresh cherries these past few weeks! I go a bit crazy in summer for all the delicious fruit and sometimes I can’t eat it fast enough! So you have to freeze some of the fruit so it doesn’t go to waste. This is also a good way to enjoy local fruit even in the winter! So I created a thick, creamy, and delicious Cherry Smoothie Bowl for you all to enjoy!
If you follow me on Instagram, you will perhaps have seen my food adventures when I was recently in France. The food was so delicious but also more on the heavy side. So I was actually really happy to get home and make a smoothie as well as enjoy my main staples. Smoothies were hard to come by over there, and I’m typically a smoothie a day kind of gal.
When I was in France, I tried some “normal” bread as I heard it is less hard on the digestive system. And I mean I was in France, how could I not try a baguette!? I definitely could enjoy some bread, but just noticed if I ate a lot of it, I still got bloated. So I ate it in moderation. When we were in the smaller towns, gluten-free eating was pretty tricky so I would indulge there. Back in Paris, there were a lot of gluten-free options, so it was pretty easy to accommodate there.
More to come about France, as I’m thinking of doing a post on some of the food I enjoyed there! I think it might be helpful if you are planning on travelling to Paris, or the Provence region, for me to give you a little guide for what I loved over there!
My desire for a smoothie inspired me along with cherry season to make this bowl. If you don’t know what to do with all your cherries you can de-pit and freeze them! Then you will have a lovely stock for winter and to make this delicious smoothie bowl! I usually top my smoothie bowls with homemade granola but you can also just buy granola to cut down on time. A great thing about smoothie bowls is that you can really top them with anything! Fruit, hemp seeds, chia seeds, nuts, nut butter, coconut, spices, granola, really anything your heart desires!
I’ve been on a roll since France, with blending up smoothies left, right and centre. My Picky Husband probably thinks I’m a little too obsessed with smoothies but as the French say, ” c’est la vie.” So do what pleases YOU and makes you feel extra cheery, cool and satisfied- maybe that’s whipping up this smoothie bowl!
