Tangerine Dream Smoothie Bowl

Tangerine Dream Smoothie and a review of the new @Vitamix Ascent Series blenders || @thismessisours

Admittedly, I was pretty late to the smoothie bowl game. I just don’t tend to buy into food trends, I know, I know bad food blogger! I’ve always been that way about pretty much everything. If all of my friends in middle school were wearing a certain brand of clothes I would purposely tell my mom to not buy that brand. If they were all listening to a new hot band I would blast my Tom Petty tunes through my walkman. I was always just a loner, doing my own thing and apparently that even lends itself to food trends.

This desire to be different has admittedly bitten me in the keister a few times, including with smoothie bowls. We have been totally missing out over here!

All that changed a few months ago when our friends at Vitamix asked us to test out their new Ascent A3300 blender. To say I fell hard for this blender is an understatement, just read about my obsession by clicking here. I started cranking out smoothies every single day, sometimes twice a day which inevitably led to incorporating more smoothie bowls into my weekly routine.

Although, I am still breaking from the norm by indulging in smoothie bowls for lunch instead of breakfast! Hey, Istill have to do it a little differently.
