Tropical Smoothie Bowl



As humans, we tend to sulk a lot, don’t we? Just like how I am feeling today… My parents left after a three month stay last night. I don’t want to sound cliched by saying that I am already missing them. We all need our parents around us all the time, even though sometimes they may run over your head and make you go out of control. But parents are parents, and nobody will love us more than them in this world. I am thankful that I have had my fair share of having them around whenever I have needed them, or whenever they have needed a break from their routine back home. The kids were terrible last night. Rasha kept weeping herself to sleep while Azza kept muttering, “Enikku ummaane kaananm” (I want to see umma) just a couple of hours after she had left. I know they will come back to normal soon, and they are eagerly waiting for their vacation, though there is still four more months to go, InShaAllah…


With breakfast happening to be the most important meal of the day, it gets imperative to watch what we eat in the morning. I always struggle to have a good breakfast, though I am trying to see what best I can do in this regard. I hope I can plan ahead but nothing seems to be working in my favor. Here is one smoothie bowl that makes an amazing weekend breakfast. This smoothie bowl has all flavors that are tropical – the fruits that go into it as well as the base. I don’t think I need to explain how a medley of banana, mango, pineapple and coconut milk goes into giving you a feeling as though you are at a beach side! πŸ˜‰ Combined with the pecans and fresh coconut as toppings, it takes the smoothie bowl to another level. I would suggest you to try this when you are able to get hold of all the fruits in your hand. Off to the recipe…

  1. yum! I can smell summer! πŸ™‚

    I prefer savoury bf anytime, but most of the weekends or lazy days, these kinda quick fix helps a lot. Like you know we are into oats every other day for dinner and most of the days for bf. So smoothie bowl will be a good change once in a while.. I will have to wait for mangoes to come back. Did you use frozen?

  5. I can understand the joy of having parents around and the pain felt when they depart back to their home. Hope you will not miss them as much in days to come. And that Tropical Smoothie Bowl looks fabulous! I love your presentation.

      Thank you so much for coming by, Mallika…

  6. Breakfasts such as these are apt for summer days!! I generally prefer to use one fruit at a time cz I somehow do not like the taste of all fruits going together in a blender! And like you said – there is nothing like a good breakfast!
    I love cold overnight oats as well during summers.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      For me hot or cold doesn’t matter at all as per season… hehe… Thank you so much Ria…

  12. Oh! So yummylicious dear. i love tropical flavours. BTW have you tried adding jack-fruit to any of these smoothie bowls. I love to eat them as such but not too sure how it would turn as a topping or blend. Whats your opinion?

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      I am not a fan of jackfruit so cant comment on anything about it… hehe… Thank you so much dear Tum…

  13. Smoothie bowl looks so yum… though I have seen these smoothie bowls all over the internet , I tried it only few days back and I must say i am hooked… I am liking the addition of coconut. Got to try it the next time I make some
