Banana Berry Smoothie Bowls

This Banana Berry Smoothie post is a project of The Women Bloggers and Kendal King Group on behalf of our client.

Up until recently I never thought to use the Gerber Cereal for anything other than cereal for the baby. With both of the kids I always had boxes and boxes leftover once they “outgrew” it. Some boxes expired before I noticed, some were given away to friends, and others were donated to the local food panty.

After being challenged to come up with additional ways to use the cereal I made these better for you muffins that the boys love. This past week I also added it in with our fruit smoothies, except I made smoothies bowls topped with fresh fruit instead of our typical smoothies.

    These smoothie bowls have become quite popular. I am going to have to stop being so lazy and just make one up. It looks easy enough and it is certainly good for you to eat.

    This looks very delicious and easy to make. I might top mine with a bit of toasted coconut flakes.

    This recipe looks very delicious indeed. I copied the recipe down to make this on the coming weekend. I thank you for sharing it with us today.

  9. Jenna Hudson says:

    I really like how you decorated the top of yours. Sure the very intricate and tons of toppings is pretty to look at, but realistically it’s not something you would do everyday. I would sprinkle some chia seed on it too!
