Pomelo Smoothie Bowl

February 3, 2016

So I was at Whole Foods with the twins, and in my usual #twinmom state (tired, fuzzy brain) I had found myself wandering the store, having immediately forgotten what it was that I needed to get.  I was distracted by a display of giant pomelos, and on a whim, I purchased one about half the size of a basketball.

 

Once I got home, I realized I had no idea what to do with it.  What looked so cool and enticing in the store now seemed like a frivolous buy.  I'm not a grapefruit person; eating a plain grapefruit sounds like a punishment to me.  I decided to mix it into a smoothie since I love my smoothies, which then morphed into making a smoothie bowl, and THEN I had the genius idea of making the pomelo skin into a bowl, which to my surprise actually worked!  Also, it looked neat and I felt like a creative genius though I'm absolutely sure someone else has thought of this idea at some point.

 

It took a lot of taste tasting until the sweetness perfectly balanced the tartness, but finally I achieved it. This is actually suuper refreshing, and after a quick online barre workout while the babies napped (at the same time!  It was glorious!) I immensely enjoyed this smoothie bowl.  I hope you like it too!
