Wake Up To Goodness Smoothie Bowl (GF, DF)

Something New

There is something brand spanking new on The Kitchen Revival and I am very excited and proud of it. In case you haven’t noticed, The Kitchen Revival has a brand new logo!

Healthy-&-Seasonal-Logo-1

I have been processing and working on this new logo for several weeks now and I am so in love with it. Of all the logos I have made and used on my blog over the past several years, this by far is my favorite. I can finally now say that these are the official colors of The Kitchen Revival. There will be other changes that will be taking place over the next few weeks and months, but these positive changes will take place slowly cause the only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time!

Now On To The Recipe

Of all of the smoothies I have created over the past few months, I have only made 2 smoothie bowls. The first one was my Tropical Smoothie Bowl that I created back in January. Not sure why I waited so long to make another smoothie bowl because they are delicious.

This smoothie bowl is so full of goodness and I just can’t decide what my most favorite ingredient in this smoothie bowl is. But if I had to choose just one ingredient, it would have to be the Chocolatey Buckwheat Crunchies that I made for this smoothie bowl. I have really gotten into Buckwheat lately. I guess I just really enjoyed my very first experience with Buckwheat when I made my Buckwheat Power SaladBuckwheat is just one of those diverse ingredients that can be used in many different ways.

The Chocolatey Buckwheat Crunchies that I created really just put this smoothie bowl over the top. The good news is I had some of those crunchies left to use as a cereal for the next morning for breakfast.

If you have never had a smoothie bowl, then you should really give it a try because you don’t know what your missing.
