Tropical Cherry Smoothie Bowl

  This morning I took my sons best friend for Birthday Doughnuts before school!  I arranged with his Mom to have him spend the night so that really early I could go wake them, and bring them to this cute Doughnut shop for his Birthday.  Trust me when I say none of the boys were thrilled with me when at 5:40 I'm running around jumping on the beds to wake them up singing Happy Birthday...None of them were amused!  They were even more upset when as we were driving down the expressway I said, "Well, did you soccer boys bring your Yoga Mats (As I pointed to mine in the back)?"  They all at the same time said, "I'M NOT DOING THAT"!  I just laughed...Oh... the torture I put them all thru, he he he! 
  Well, I of course did NOT eat a doughnut!  Instead I came home and made myself a Smoothie bowl.  I had some of yesterday's smoothie in the refrigerator and then made the cherry portion below and combined the two.  YUMMY!  Oh, and I feel great, meanwhile the three of them are REALLY ILL! See... I'll teach them the hard way!
Loaded with a ton of health Benefits all in one bowl!
Ingredients: 
 The Yellow part was yesterday''s post "Mango Mountain Madness"

The Red Portion is below:
1 cup organic Frozen Cherries
1/2 Frozen Banana
1/2 cup Organic Black Cherry Juice
1 cup spinach
1 tablespoon Spirulina Powder (5g of protein)
1 kelp capsule, emptied
1/2 cupful of Organic Wheatgrass Powder (Cap comes in the container)

Method:

Blend all ingredients together, spoon in the red first and then add the Yellow and use whatever toppings you would like.  I used sliced bananas & walnuts to decorate mine this morning.  It had to be quick:) Also, the Spirulina contains 5g of protein while an egg contains 6g of protein so Spirulina is a great source of protein when you don't have time to cook.  I also should mention.. now I have extra of the Cherry portion that I'm enjoying out of a glass!  Have a Great Day!
