Smoothie Bowl Bliss: A Recipe for the Prettiest Breakfast Ever

Smoothie Bowl Bliss: A Recipe for the Prettiest Breakfast Ever | NextTribe

We love pretty food, yummy food, and healthy food. It’s not every day that you find all of those things in one delicious dish, but this new smoothie bowl is just that.

The Ocean Bowl is the latest creation from The End, an ultra-cool Brooklyn-based café that claims to have invented the Unicorn Latte before Starbucks sugarized and corrupted it. The Ocean Bowl is a nutritious smoothie bowl for brekkie and beyond, and it looks like a bit of the sea. So, bonus: It’s great for blowing up your Insta feed, too.

The End’s co-owners, Madeleine Murphy and Bret Caretsky, concocted this delish dish with Spirulina and kelp, ingredients mined from the deep blue, tumbled in a coconut yogurt base that sort of resembles frothy ocean foam. The “wow” ingredient, according to Murphy, is butterfly pea powder, which comes from a plant and changes from shades of blue to purple. Available at your health-food store or online, the pea powder is what foodies depend on to turn dishes blue without artificial ingredients, and it’s also reputed to lift your mood and boost collagen (yes, please!).

The Ocean Bowl gets garnished with blueberries and crumbled granola (read: beach sand), and is a fab A.M. alternative to your standard shredded wheat. Try it, and you may swear you hear waves lapping at the tip of your spoon.

Summer Read: Pamela Druckerman’s Latest Is a Nora-Ephron-Like Take on Midlife

There Are No Grown-Ups, a recent collection of essays by the wry and wise best-selling author Pamela Druckerman, is just the thing for those of us who are missing Nora Ephron’s stellar voice. This book offers up Druckerman’s take on life in her 40’s—with musings on how waiters suddenly know to call her Madame instead of Mademoiselle (she lives in France), and what it’s like to honor her husband’s unusual gift request for a big birthday (it involves a certain act, in bed, and not just with the two of them).
