Once upon a time, a long time ago, I worked in a big city.

At noon everyday, in a skirt and heels, I’d ditch my desk and swing by one of a world of different lunch spot options.

One place I loved was Pret A Manger, which sold something called a Sunshine Bowl.

It’s a smoothie bowl topped with fresh fruit and granola and filled with high nutrition superfoods.

These smoothie bowls get their bright, bold “sunshine” color from two key ingredients: mangoes and turmeric.

Turmeric is a subtle, sweet spice that’s believed to be a healing, very powerful antioxidant.

Mangoes – packed with vitamins A and C – are believed to be great for bright eyes and healthy skin and hair.

 

I always felt so healthy when I ate one of these smoothie bowls, like I’d done something really nourishing for myself that day.

But, even more importantly, those sunshine smoothie bowls tasted so, so good.

Blended with coconut milk and bananas, this mango smoothie is really rich and thick and creamy and naturally sweet.

But when you add in some crunchy vanilla granola for another layer of flavor…

…and blueberries and pomegranate seeds for a little tartness and a little crunch…

…The overall combo is heavenly delicious!

I loved those sunshine bowls.

So much.

These days, I’m home taking care of Trevor in my sweats and trying to finally lose the remaining pregnancy weight.

But a few weeks ago, I had a thought.

Why not recreate my old favorite from Pret A Manger at home?
