Smoothie bowls are enjoying a serious moment in 2018. More filling than the traditional recipe, these bowls tend to be packed with proteins and nutrients to keep you full all day long. And our Strawberry Watermelon Smoothie Bowl is no exception in that regard. Featuring a sweetly delicious blend of watermelon, mango, and strawberry, this treat gets its creaminess from an infusion of coconut milk. Plus, bee pollen helps fight off those summertime colds while lime juice adds a dose of tartness. Serve up this Strawberry Watermelon Smoothie Bowl in a hollowed out watermelon at your next party or barbecue—your guests are sure to be impressed.
