Sometimes the best things happen when you make a “mistake”. Case and point: this beautiful Green Smoothie Bowl.

Green Smoothie Bowl

The other day I was blending my morning smoothie when I realized that I didn’t have enough almond milk to make my usual “sip-able” smoothie.

Since the consistency was way to thick for a straw, I decided to eat my smoothie…like ice cream…in a bowl…with a spoon…and loaded with toppings!

See what I mean? A mistake gone right.

This Green Smoothie Bowl was a good reminder that slip-ups are only a bad thing when you don’t adjust to (or learn from) them.

I easily adjusted to this one and learned that I want to eat smoothie bowls waaay more often!

So, cheers to mess-ups, not having enough almond milk and creating this delicious bowl of goodness…by mistake!
